Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Which Cowboy Would Win?

ScreamingEagle, did you ever see High Plains Drifter?  ;)

No. And I'm guessing he did have the gun at the ready. Well, The Man With No Name then

Bronson   ;)

"I saw three of these dusters a while ago. Inside the dusters were three men. And inside the three men were three bullets"

Bronson is quite good. But he has his gun out of his holster when he thinks he needs it. Clint has it in his holster, and draws from that. Bronson has his hidden in his bag when he kills the three gunmen, under his hat when he kills the two on horseback, and already drawn when he kills the sniper.

John Wayne says 'Pilgrim' most of the time.

"You better fill your hands Pilgrim"

However John Wayne used a Winchester quite a few times.

'joe' doesn't need a rifle of any sought (except for cutting the rope), we see this in FOD
"When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said the man with the pistol is a dead man. Let's see if that's true?"

KC, Well I tried with

Many Hollywood Westerns were romanticised looks of the West, where; Cowboys are good, Indians are bad, there is always a cattledrive etc.

However up until the Spaghetti Westerns really impacted on America, Hollywood Westerns was all there was.
Leone loved westerns but he was fed up of the American ideology that were in most Westerns, like 'A Man's got to do what a Man's got to do'.

Some of them are quite good and you can't really dismiss them as unrealistic.  The only complaint I have of the Hollywood Western is the same reason Leone's. The American ideology and Romantic view of the West.

Some good Hollywood Westerns that I've seen:
-The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (like I said, this has quite a bit of the ideology in it, but is enjoyable)
-The Magnificent Seven (has less of a romantic view and is very good)

I should get around to watching more when they come on the TV, as in here in Britain you can't usually go a week without a western showing on the TV.

Thanks for translation to English...

La mia famiglia ha a Napoli un ristorante e uno dei clienti più affezionati è l'attore Aldo Giuffrè, che in GBU era il capitano nordista alcolizzato. Giorni fa ha festeggiato i suoi 80 anni al nostro ristorante e gli ho chiesto se ricordava le riprese di GBU e un giudizio sugli attori: non ricordava bene Van Cleef e Wallach, ma di Clint mi ha detto che era molto professionale e serio. Io gli ho fatto i complimenti per la sua bellissima interpretazione; egli è un attore di teatro molto noto in Italia e a Napoli in particolare.
Quando uscì GBU a cinema, io avevo 19 anni e confesso che andai a vederlo malvolentieri, perché l'eroe dei western fino ad allora era stato per me John Wayne, tutto diverso dal personaggio del Biondo...


Translation as follows:

"My family has to Naples a restaurant and one of the customers more becomes attached to you is l'attore Aldo Giuffrè, than in GBU alcoholic was the nordista captain. Days ago our restaurant has celebrated its 80 years al and I have asked to it if it remembered the GBU resumptions and a judgment sugli actors: it did not remember Van Cleef and Wallace well, but of Clint it has said to me that it was much professional and serious one. I have made it I compliment for its beautifulst interpretation; it is a theatre actor much famous one in Italy and to Naples in particular. When GBU to cinema exited, I had 19 years and confess that I went to see it malvolentieri, because l'eroe of the westerns until then had been for me John Wayne, all various from the personage of the Blond man..."

Hey Blondie, I'm very glad FAFDM is gaining on GBU  ;D

Another bit of info on Lee Van Cleef.

I noticed he was also in 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance'.

The some of the other Spaghetti Westerns he was in after GBU, wearing the black clad clothing like Col. Mortimer from FAFDM ; 'The Big Gundown', 'Sabata', 'Death Rides A Horse'.
and he was also in the last of The Magnificent Seven sequals (poor guy).

That's my point. What happens? Could there be a sequel? GBU part 2? It's not gonna happen I know. But it's nice to dream. :)

oh that bit. Well Sad Hill is close to that bridge, he can just walk back there, get a horse, get the gold, spend it all and commit  the following crimes......... again:

1. Murder. Big surprise.
2. Recieving stolen goods.
3. Selling stolen goods.
4. Theft of sacred objects.
5. Used marked cards & loaded dice.
6. Rape.
7. Assaulting a Justice of the peace.
8. He hired himself out as a wagon guide. But after getting paid in advance, left the wagons on the hunting grounds of Indians.
9. Inciting prostitution.
10. Perjury.
11. Bigamy.
12. Deserting his wife & children.

Good answers. Allow me to make a new question. After Tuco got shot free by Blondie for the last time, how did he get to a town? He & Blondie didn't have horses. The horse Blondie rode at the end was Angel Eye's horse.


Blondie had a horse. Tuco walked 170 miles back to town and robbed the senile old bloke that seems to be a custom in these films. 'Huuuhhhh?'

I suppose Blondie never wanted to kill Tuco, just taunt him.

He could had killed Tuco when he left him in the desert, but doesn't.

Besides, who would kill Tuco? He's just so damn funny  ;D

Since this is a thread about the "Dollars" movies, can we please try to restrain ourselves from quoting other films, especially those in which Clint Eastwood did not participate? There's a whole Off Topic forum for things like that.


Woooooo Clint, woooooo

[size=0]Once Upon A Time In The West is better then GBU [/size] aaaaaahhhhhhh *shot dead by KC* :o

Well, Blondie, you must feel sick everyday of the year ;)

"Forgetaboutit"-it's all in good fun.

Screaming Eagle: Are you quoting "Bright Eyes" from Planet Of The Apes with your 'damn you all to hell' comment?  Just curious.

In a word, yes.

Only joking blondie, hence the smiley ' ;D '

Bronson not that popular......

I dunno Vin.


thje problem with Bronsons acting career is that it started too late. He made his name in The Magnificent Seven. And he was in his late thirties.

I think if anybody wore the outfit they would like a full fledged badass.

it won't if they've never seen the dollars films.
You'd get a piss-taking similar to that of the beginning of FOD. But since laws have changed and shooting people for laughing at your mule woudn't go down very well with the law. ;)

Blondie, your GBU mad. take a break  ;)

For A Few Dollars More

Lee Van Cleef is better as Mortimer then Angel Eyes.

Why does life have to have difficult questions ???
