Clint is definitely cranking, and if I remember right it looks like a cylinder magazine on top. Its one of the Gattlings, you see a similar on at the Battle of Langstone Bridge in GBU.

Yea I always figured it was some sort of prop, Django uses a similar looking weapon, and if you look closely the belt doesn't even move, lol.

The sequence should be GBU, FAFDM then AFOD. Ramon is using a fully automatic machinegun (he's not cranking it like a gattling gun) they weren't invented until 1895 if I remember right.

You do it with your nail stiking (rubbing) along the match head (white part). Put pressure on the match head then move your thumb sideways, it helps if your thumb nail is a little long. You need strike anywhere matches to do it.

Thats the rummor, one of the gunmen at the beginning, though it wouldn't have been playing the character of the Man With No Name. It would have been a different role much like the difference between Col. Mortimer, and Angel Eyes/Setenza a totaly different character, as would have Van Cleef and Wallach.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / GBU in NYT top 1000 films
« on: December 05, 2004, 03:20:52 PM »
Ok here is a little project for us the NYT has a list of the best 1000 films GBU is on it. There is a readers review of the 100 most highly rated movies of all time, this is determined by readers reviews which means "us", as it is now current films are in that 100 we can change that to get GBU up there by adding our reviews and rating the film.

You may have to register with the NYT but it costs nothing.

Go to this link:

Then go to alphabetical list and GBU & write your review and rate it. Lets see what we can do!

thanks for the spelling corrections I was a bit tired. Huges Pocket Essential Spaghetti Westerns lists it as 1967 but it may have been a 1968 release.

Here are some screen cap pics from a German Site.

Hemlock you got it!

In TGS there is a scene where "Silence" the mute (Jean Louis Trigtignat) is asked by Pauliene (Vonetta McGee) why he doesn't answer her, and he reveals the scar that he recieved from having his throat cut by the outlaws who killed his family as a child. He pulls down his scarf and lifts his head, in Hang em High Clint does the exact same reveal to Ringo when Clint says the line "You better look at a man when you hang him". Its eerily almost an exact copy.

TGS takes place in high elevation Utah in the winter everyone is bound up in bearskin and buffalo robe coats. Klaus Kinsky ("Wild" from For A Few Dollars More) is the head bounty hunter. His headgear outfit consists of a scarf worn like a hood with a black flat brimmed hat hat on top of it he looks like a live gargoyle. Its exactly what Mingo wears in Joe Kidd.

Silence the mute  hired gun in TGS uses a Mauser Bolo Machine pistol as his chief weapon, the same gun used by Lamarr in Joe Kidd.

The Great Silence isn't Leone but its very intense. bloody, and very dark. It also has in its cast besides Klaus Kinsky, Luigi Pistilli (Groggy from FAFDM, Brother Ramierez from GBU), Mario Brega (Wallace from GBU, Nino from FAFDM) and Frank Wolf (McBain from OUTITW).

Two Clint Eastwood Movies "Hang em High" and "Joe Kidd" were influenced by this nihilistic 1967 Spaghetti Western. Ideas, costumes, props, and whole scenes appear unchanged. Can you name it? ;)

If you are inclined towards Spaghetti Westerns, a couple of great classic ones that will remind you of For a Few Dollars More, and GBU are, Sergio Sollima's The Big Gundown with Lee Van Cleef & Tomas Milian, and Sergio Corbucci's The Mercenary with Franco Nero, Tony Musanti, and Jack Palance.

A lot of SiFi flicks are basically westerns in space.

I think Sean Connery's "Out land" was a remake of "High Noon".

On the topic of one dimensional characters I think that's why the few westerns out recently dont' work, the characters are so flat.  The characters need to be deep and complex like William Munny and Little Bill in Unforgiven, it just makes for a much better story.  

They can be one dimentional but they have to be filmed ICONICLY, Eastwood, Wallach, Van Cleef, Volonte, Bronson, Fonda, Cardinale, Robards, were not complex but Sergio Leone drew on every character in every western that came before them so they continued the narative that we were all familiar with over the 40, 50, and 60's movies and TV and elevated the story into western mythology. Gunfighters as Gods. Any movie that drops back down to melodrama is going to seem lacking.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Clint Eastwood Western Costume
« on: February 01, 2004, 05:19:54 AM »
Here's a stupid question.  Would you not wear the poncho in public because it would be anywhere from semi-obnoxious to full-blown obnoxious, or because you'll attract the wrong kind of attention?!!!  Sorry, just had to do that!!!    

Actually both! We knew a guy in Montana that wore a duster and hat and rode is horse everywhere he went. He also wore clunky black hornrimmed glasses, he looked like a total dweeb.

He lived with his mother up until her death his house flew an american flag that was so old it had faded to almost white, as if time stood still from then on.

He was as the locals say "teched in the head".
