If you are lucky enough to live anywhere near Indiana, you have a rare chance to see PAINT YOUR WAGON on the big screen, and very impressive it should look too, here's a very nicely made advertisement for the show which contains all the details.

Off-Topic Discussion / LOIS MAXWELL DIES 80
« on: October 01, 2007, 03:12:06 PM »
Yes, that lovely Miss Moneypenny has sadly died aged 80, she had been battling against cancer.
Everyone's favourite secretary, Lois moved from England to Australia a few years ago to be close to her family. I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful Lady, some 10-12 years ago, she was an absolute joy and always happy to talk about the character that she had simply made her own. A sad loss.


October 3 American Film Institute will be holding a special evening screening 11 movies in one night, each introduced by the Star or Director, Tickets go on sale September 19th, more information can be found here:

Wondered if anyone saw this great episode on TV in the UK this week? The 2 presenters (and 1 extra) attempted the escape under the same conditions, using the same materials and everything else. The program also contained some really great original newsreel footage (pity it didn't make it to the DVD). The real dummy heads etc, really marvellous to watch AND they actually did make it to shore! Really glad I caught this.

Hi All, thought I would be first to let all fans know that the Soundtrack to THE ENFORCER gets it's first ever release sometime in October, Lalo Schifrin's Aleph records will be releasing it, even though it was a Jerry Fielding score (Lalo was unable to score The Enforcer due to a clash in work schedules). So this is a great news for all Eastwood fans and one for which Aleph should be congratulated.
This is the debut announcement any where and thought the news would be really appreciated here first. Here for you all is the track listing:

1.  Prologue / Main Title     3.21
2.  Harry's World                  1.03
3.  Warehouse Heist            5.20
4.  Code Blue                        1.14
5.  Rooftop Chase                6.02
6.  Raid on Mustapha's       1.17
7.  Kidnap Zap                       3.45
8.  Tiffany's #11                     3.18
9.  The Shooting Nun           1.15
10. Alcatraz Encounter         4.26
11. Death on the Rock         3.04
12. Finale (Elegy for Inspector Moore)   2.50
13. Finale (Alternate Version)                  2.56

I heard that June Allyson had died this month, or rather I was told last night by a friend, anyone know if this is true?

General Discussion / Nice little Clint musical tribute on the web
« on: July 01, 2006, 04:41:22 AM »
Just came across this by accident, thought it was a nice little home made tribute:

There's also a nice little home made Dirty Harry video for Welcome to the Jungle:

Plus a few other interesting little snippets here and there.

Off-Topic Discussion / X MEN III anyone seen it?
« on: May 29, 2006, 03:57:59 PM »
I just thought I'd hop along to the flix today to see
X MEN III, well, the British Bank Holiday was its usual wet 'n' horrible day :(

I came out of it feeling quite good and refreshed, amazing what 105 mins of smash em up fun can do to brighten up your day.

Enjoyable little movie actually. :)

Eastwood News / Eli and The Good The Bad and the Ugly NFT LONDON
« on: April 09, 2006, 05:35:32 AM »
At last I can announce this, been wanting to tell the UK based fans about this for the last few weeks now, but had been sworn to silence. :(

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly + Eli Wallach In Conversation
As part of our season of Classic Westerns we are delighted to be able to welcome Eli Wallach to the NFT for an on-stage interview. Since his debut screen performance in Elia Kazan's Baby Doll in 1956 (for which he was awarded a BAFTA for most promising newcomer) he has become one of Hollywood's most recognisable and accomplished actors. Prior to this interview we will screen Sergio Leone's classic The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Il Buono, il Bruto, il Cattivo) which features one of Wallach's most memorable roles; the lying, two-faced, bandit Tuco.

Italy 1966 Dir Sergio Leone
3.00PM, NFT1

The film's running time is marked at 180mins Tickets are £14.75

A friend of mine already has us a couple of tickets, but they are bound to go fast. That's Saturday May 27th 2006. :)

Off-Topic Discussion / Jack Wild Dies at 53
« on: March 02, 2006, 02:53:51 PM »
These are certainly sad times, it almost makes you fear what tomorrow might bring.

Jack Wild was most famous perhaps as the Artful Dodger in the film musical Oliver! and of course in the wonderful HR Pufnstuf.
He had been struggling for some time against cancer of the mouth.

So Sad.

Off-Topic Discussion / Denis Weaver dies aged 81
« on: February 27, 2006, 05:25:21 PM »
Denis Weaver played Chester in Gunsmoke and then as the leading man of 70s series McCloud (based on Clint's Coogan character) He died of complications from cancer on Friday at his home in Colorado; he was 81.

I also remember his fine performance in the 1971 Spielberg picture Duel, where he played the terrorised driver persued by crazed truck driver.

Very sad to hear he is no longer with us.

General Discussion / THE ROOKIE in Jokes or coincidence?
« on: February 21, 2006, 05:23:44 PM »
Ok, just revisited The Rookie, by way of finally adding it to my DVD collection, just finished watching it in fact, I was reminded by the final scene at the airport, where Clint could of possibly made a couple of 'in joke' remarks linked to Two of his most famous characters, in this case, possibly both Harry Callahan and The Man with no Name
I'm probably not word perfect on these quotes but for example, Clint states
"Can you believe that security guard only had 5 bullets in his gun, how about that"
A possible reference to the 6 shots or 5 scenario from Dirty Harry
then, immediately following this Clint turns to Sheen and continues;
"Didn't I tell you to always aim for the Heart"
Which suspiciously resembles Clint's teasing comments to Ramon during the climax of Fistful of Dollars

Just a coincidence or an example of Clint having a bit of fun with his past characters?

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

A Fistful of Dollars by Ennio Morricone released Feb / Mar 06
PLEASE NOTE: This item is expected to be released in February and is only available for PRE-ORDER at this time. Orders containing preordered items are not shipped until all items are in stock. If you wish to receive other items sooner than this one, we recommend placing a separate order.
GDM Music is proud to announce the special edition CD reissue of "A Fistful of Dollars" with the famous score by Ennio Morricone for the classic movie directed by Sergio Leone in 1964. This CD edition was prepared in close cooperation with Ennio Morricone who authorized 10 inedit tracks coming from the original 1964 mono session tapes. Through an appropriate digital remastering and a carefull restoration session we could remove all the original sound defects and anomalies like the correction of big defects still existing on the two channels since the original recording session. This CD features the music chronologically sequenced as it appears in the movie (alternating the stereo mixes to the newly discovered mono mixes). Special edition in clickpak + 12 pages colour booklet.

General Discussion / Clint refuses Oscar Goodie Bags
« on: February 03, 2006, 04:15:44 AM »
Just had the TV on in the background and heard that Clint is one of the rare people that hands back the Oscar freebie gifts (along with Keanu Reeves) Clint claims that 'I don't need any of this stuff' .

I was amazed at the goods included in these bags, apparently last years value was $100,000 per bag, and this year that will rise to a staggering $200,000 per bag.
Included among these gifts in the past has been:

Strings of Pearls
HD Televisions
Carabean Cruises
and a host of other rich delights

Is this Hollywood gone mad? Talk about money goes to money.
It's nice to see that Clint does not agree with such 'fat cat' self-rewarding policies, but have to say it does not surprise me, it seems in keeping with his nature.

The Dirty Harry Films / THE ICONIC HARRY IMAGE [on an unrelated CD]
« on: January 23, 2006, 06:03:59 AM »
I was just browsing and spotted this CD and Ltd edition LP, nothing to do with any music from the Harry films, but a few cop themes features here and there, but the cover does have this striking image of Clint, which looks like a Magnum Force Publicity shot, but a great image nevertheless. Amazing how this iconic image still holds so much pulling power.

Off-Topic Discussion / UK OIL BLAST
« on: December 11, 2005, 06:28:57 AM »
:o Anybody else feel the shock from this earlier this morning?
I live about 10 miles from the blast, the only way I can describe it is as i would imagine an Earthquake would feel, a large rumbling sound and a physical tremor that made me sit up in bed :o Pretty Scary stuff.

Reports have been coming in that the explosion could be heard as far away as the North of France and Holland :o

Off-Topic Discussion / RICHARD PRYOR DIES
« on: December 10, 2005, 03:38:14 PM »
Just heard the News, a great loss, I know he had been battling multiple sclerosis for something like 20 years.
I have fond memories at the local cinema watching such comedies as STIR CRAZY and SILVER STREAK.
