Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Angel Eyes death makes him look weak
« on: July 09, 2004, 04:03:34 PM »
Angel Eyes should have been the most nervous of the three. After having had Tuco beaten within an inch of his life, he must have known that Tuco would kill him before Blondie. He also recognized Blondie's intelligence earlier and would know that Blondie would first take out who was the greater threat, which would be him. Angel Eyes knew these were very experienced gunfighters and that he wouldn't be able to shoot both of them before one of them could get a shot at him.

Anyway, I don't feel the least bit sorry for Angel Eyes. But, I've always felt a little bad for Lee Van Cleef. I felt his character had the least screen-time and least interesting role of the three. Seeing the uncut version, I realize there were a few additional scenes that would have given his character a little more of a balance with the other two, and I think at least one or two of those scenes should have been included in the regular cut of the film. But, I couldn't mention any scene that I'd rather they had cut, and they did have to shorten the length, so....  :-\
wait is the uncut version the collectors edition one?

Notice how the wheels are different. The one at the top is i believe the same model they probably used for kelly's Heroes and the one at the bottom is the real thing.

 :)IF any of you recall in the movie "Kellys Heroes" with Clint Eastwood, there were 3 tiger tanks that looked extremely well done.

In actuality though, the chassis was originally from a T-34 tank with wheels added up to 8 all together. However, unlike the real thing, They did not overlap each other Plus, they edited the chassis by making the sides look exactly like a Tigers armor plating.

anyways lets be on topic....  :P  Wait let me get this straight when angel eyes faced tuco and blondie at the end he looked very nervous (as some of you quoted earlier). But anyways I felt bad for him i mean look the first time  clint shot him he fell but he coulda atleast try to take his revolver and shoot it before blondie could pull his trigger again. What do you people think?

well if im not mistaken that pistol was in the movie outlaw josey wales. IF you remember he tried to find a gun in the rubble when his house was burned down. Well you see that pistol i believe was the same model because it too was hollow right near the cylinder.

Now and then someone wants to know how to post a picture here on the board, so I figured I'd start a topic on it. It's pretty easy, and gets easier after you do it a few times.

First, the image you want to post must already be uploaded on the internet. If you found the picture on a website somewhere, then you should be able to post it here. There are some exceptions though... many free sites like Geocities and Tripod don't allow 'direct linking' of their images, which basically means... we won't see it. If you find the image you want to post on one of those sites...  and you can't find it on any other site... you'll have to upload it onto your own site or ask a moderator if they can host it for you before you can post it here.

Once you find the picture that you want to post, right click on it and a pop-up box will appear. Look at the bottom for a line that says 'Properties", click on that and a pop-up box will come up that will have a line that says Address (URL) and that will give you the entire web address that you need to post it here. (Here's the URL for the picture I will be posting:  http://www.clinteastwood.org/pix/gallery/large70/magnum.jpg) Highlight the entire address (using your left mouse button) then right click on the highlighted address and another pop-up box will appear. Choose "copy".

Now, you need to go to your post to insert the picture where you want it. Simply go to that point in your post, click, then go to the two rows of YABBC tags above the window where you type your post. On the bottom row, fourth over is a picture of a picture frame:  Click on that and these tags will appear in your post (I have a space after the first bracket of each tag so that they'll show up here in this post)  [ img][ /img]  Click on the space between the first tag and the second, and then right click, and choose "paste".  Here's what I'll have now in my post:  [ img]http://www.clinteastwood.org/pix/gallery/large70/magnum.jpg[ /img]. (Once again, I've inserted a space after each bracket so that the codes show up here).

You can then use the 'preview' button to look at your post before you send it to the board to make sure it worked.  Here's the picture now... exactly the same codes as above, except I've removed the space after each bracket so that the codes will work:



An alternate way of doing this, although it has the same outcome, is to just paste the URL for the picture in your post, then highlight it, and click on the same YABBC tag   The tags will surround the URL.  (If you use the Netscape browser, you won't be able to do it this way, it doesn't work. Just do it the first way.)

Speaking of Netscape, if you're using the Netscape browser, things are a little easier when it comes to getting the URL for the picture and posting it here. In Netscape, right click on the picture you want to post, and then select "Copy Image Location".  This saves the URL and is ready to paste with just a right click of your mouse wherever you want it.

If you've never posted a picture on the board before, I hope this helps you out. Good luck.  :)
thank you so much

Of course not. "Angels Eyes" is quite, quite dead at the end of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, which takes place during the American Civil War, around the time of the Battle of Glorieta Pass (March 28, 1862). For a Few Dollars More takes place a decade or more later. Both characters were indeed played by Lee Van Cleef, but Gian Maria Volonté played two different characters in A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More, also, and many of the actors in the smaller roles can be seen in two or even all three of the Leone-directed films starring Eastwood.
yeah but in 1862 the confederates were on a winning streak. They weren't losing they were winning.

Rich man or poor man, beggar or king
All become equal by one little thing
In the end they all die just the same
When they catch the bullet that bears their name.

 do you ever wonder why Angel eyes joined the Union. I mean come on I think  he woulda suited being in the confederate army rather then the Union army. He was a ruffian with nothing to lose.

Kinda funny this topic popped up right after I finished watching this film. Seeing that this scene is still fresh in my mind I would like to make a couple observations. First off, Blondie definitely had the advantage while Angel Eyes was facing 2 opponents. That's a given. Now Angel Eyes may have been a coldblooded killer yet he still had a major problem: Who to shoot first? I don't know about all of you but I know that would get my mind and adrenaline racing. A lot goes through one's mind when he faces a gun that is aimed and about to go off. Time becomes very distorted when facing a gun. I know this from prior experience. Things become very surreal. So saying I can imagine the things going through Angel Eyes mind at the time. He made his choice and fired, plain and simple, yet I believe he may have flinched a bit therfore missing Blondie. I call it a little fear response. I don't care how much of a bada** one may be, a gun being fired at you will shake you up. For what it's worth Angel Eyes did the best he could in the circumstances, luck just wasn't on his side that day, but 2 opponents were. But hey, it's a great film, enjoy it for what it is: entertainment. Welcome to the board, looking forward to seeing more posts from you. Hey, you got me out from under my rock and that's saying something angeleyesTHE2nd ;D One last comment, when the punk shot at me he had me dead to rights. He fired, I shifted to the left, the punk missed. Can it be that Blondie also shifted to the side which is why he wasn't hit? Just a thought.
you havea good point their, no matter how good you are you still have the possibility of killing you in a draw no matter who it is.

To be honest I think the director could have atleast tried to make Angeleyes more tougher in the end when facing blondie and Tuco. I think Blondie shoulda been wounded during the draw while Tuco could just stand there with an unloaded gun. I thought sergio coulda atleast made clint look not so unstoppable because in real gun fights no matter who wins, they too can get hurt during the process of winning. Its not like their the fastest in the world their just lucky.
