  1. I thought of another "A Man Called Horse" takes place in 1825 probably its sequels also.
  2. > {quote:title=stjohnrv wrote:}{quote} > Run of the Arrow... Rod Steiger.. reb fires last shot in CW saves the Yank digs out the bullet goes west and years later shots the same Yank with the recycled slug.. this the one? Yea that's it, Brian Kieth and I think Ralph Meeker are in it too.
  3. Sam Fuller's *Run of the Arrow* starts off At the end of the Civil War maybe fifteen minutes of it takes place in 1865.

I was just listing pure Frontier Films temporally

  8. I've always wanted to see "A Thunder Of Drums" with Richard Boone heard it may be good. link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055524/
  9. "Howdy, Quiet Gal -- Ok.. now I DO agree with you here.. that each character has their own song.. It is just that it is SO overdone.. and repetitious.. It began to WEAR on me very quickly I still stand pretty much by what I said back then. But having said THAT, I readily confess there ARE some VERY good musical moments in this film... And to prove my point I will also confess that last night, I went back and rewatched the big "showdown" between Frank and Harmonica (mainly because I wanted to refresh myself on some points before I posted what I did about Frank leaving Harmonica alive) and w

  11. Just remember the disappearing bullet hole ;-)
  12. Its Beery guys, lol. I believe Noah Beery Jr, was the son of Wallace Beery's brother.
  13. Yea, in Villa Rides Bronson plays "Fiero" Villa's sadistic right hand man.
  14. The main reason I lean towards the Harmonica has "Something to do with Death" scenario is from Harmonica's initial confrontation at Cattle Corner Station. He gets shot by Woody's sawed-off Winchester and goes down what happens after he arises is what leans me towards the spectral scenario. Again he has a bullet hole upper left chest area at Cattle Corner Station Shootout, he awakens and He puts his left arm in coat button sling. He still has that bullet hole at Lionel Stander' Desert Oasis Cheyenne examines it. By the time he gets to Wobbles beating no bullet hole is visiable and &
  15. Of all the military themed films listed the BEST Cavalry vs Native film in terms of actually and grit-ally depicting what an Indian campaign must have like, minus all the melodrama, side bar love story, and patriotic jingoism that seemed to pervade the sub genre, check out Robert Aldrich's Ulzana's Raid with Burt Lancaster, if you've never seen it.
  16. Best 80's Westerns were: The Long Riders, 1980 Tom Horn, 1980 The Grey Fox, 1982 Death Hunt, 1981 In pretty much that order I didn't like Siverado much, to me it had too many characters and too many actors that didn't fit in a Western as your typical Western characters. Whenever they showed up on screen they took you right out of the film. Even Costner, his hanging around like an orangutan was pretty ridiculous. Barbarosa was better but nothing to compare to the four I listed.
  17. 1. The Good The Bad & The Ugly 2. Ulzana's Raid 3. Rio Conchos 4. The Mercenary 5. Viva Villa 6. Villa Rides 7. The Horse Soldiers 8. Escape from Fort Bravo 9. Via Zapata 10.A Bullet For the General 11.Vamos A Matar Companeros 12. Shenandoah
  18. I caught the very end of it but either the cable or TCM was having problems with freezing and pixelating . Anyway this is a film that can be enjoyed on many levels here is one interpretation that we've had on fistfulofleone.com that I favor so now you can also ponder this: Maybe its something to do with Death... I think I've brought this up before but Harmonica may, just maybe a sort of avenging angel or maybe even Death, the Grim Reaper coming for Frank. First of all why is he alive, Frank had no real restraints from gunning down Little Timmy when he heard his partner call him Fr

  20. caught the very end though TCM seemed to be having problems or my cable seemed to be having problems with pauses and pixilating images.
  21. Its a great Western, check it out on its DVD
  22. Counting Leone's films there are at max about 18 Spaghetti Westerns of real quality, films that if you didn't really know they were Italian would pass as American Westerns, there are quite a few folks out there that even today don't realize that "the Good The Bad & The Ugly" is an Italian Western, after those 18 films they go downhill quickly, too much imitation, too over the top, badly done dubbing, too much comedy and slapstick. However all those are the qualities that quite a few fans of Spaghetti Westerns cherish similar to the Shaw Brothers over the top Kung Fu films. Out of the l
  23. That last reply was also to the first question about the froze to death feller.
