    None of those actors played the leading good guy role in movie Westerns. Richard Boone is maybe the closest but he was the good guy in TV westerns like "Have Gun Will Travel". I was thinking Ben Johnson but he didn't play bad guy roles in episodic TV.

    Thanks for the link. It's interesting.

    Check my other link. The closest match seems to be Ty Hardin

    TV westerns + spaghetti westerns = Clint Eastwood

    It’s difficult to tell but his films have always been popular over here so I think curiosity whenever he brings a new film out makes people aware and want to see it, as with everything some aren't interested. Regarding the history of LA/Hollywood, there might be people overseas who are older who might understand more than someone who is younger living in LA. as I’m sure some of the old shows or actors referenced where shown overseas at the time.

    The only sociopath was Manson. Cliff and Manson's followers were just typical people made into killers, by the Army in Cliff's case and by Charlie in the case of the girls and Tex.

    Sheriff Earl McGraw had something to say about the topic in Kill Bill:



    Charlie's minions were "squirrelly amatuers" while Cliff was a "salty dog." But not a sociopath, any more than his fellow Green Berets or other soldiers.

    Yes, although I wouldn't it without the credits. I just remember her as a child actor.

    Really, how much more provocation would one need? That's enough for me.

    Maybe if he'd apologized Cliff would have gone easy on him :)

    Maybe just a 'bitch slap'.

    Chris from Chicago Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes

    If this has been brought up already, my apologies. But I noticed one of the spaghetti westerns Rick starred in was directed by Antonio Margheriti, from Inglorious Basterds.

    It’s presented in the original aspect ratio. More IMAX screens are showing the film for a limited time.

    Well, Cliff did ask whether or not he put the knife in. You are technically correct, as I recall he never actually said he did it, but I think based on the hippies response most of us knew he was the guilty party.

    Saw it Saturday. Walked out of the screening when it ended at 4pm and got a ticket for the 430pm showing to watch for a second time. (yay AMC Stubs A-List membership - I still have a third ticket available between now and Thursday, so I might swing out one night this week and watch a third time) Some random thoughts:

    One thing I have not seen mentioned much in this thread is all the girls' feet. To me, it feels like QT trolling us. "Oh, you people think I am obsessed with showing women's bare feet in my movies? Well, watch this!" :laugh:

    One of my favorite scenes is Sharon's watching her movie and feeling so happy when the crowd laughs at her jokes. (and applauds her kicking Nancy Kwan's butt - I have seen the film, and that is indeed an awesome moment; up to that point, Tate's character has simply been a stunning-looking but adorkable klutz) Robbie plays it so gently, showing how pleased Sharon is after that first laugh, especially.

    The Michelle P and Cass E actresses were amazing impersonations. Even if they hadn't listed Michelle's name on the screen, I feel I would have recognized her.

    Hate to say it because she's so much fun in Death Proof, but I thought Zoe Bell was embarrassingly bad in this film. Not so bad it's good. Not campy fun. Awful. Her appearance is one of the few low marks in the movie for me, and it really mars an amazing scene with Cliff and Bruce Lee. :(

    So nice I've seen it twice. My main criticism of the film is still that there isn't enough Sharon! Maybe there will be more in the director's cut?
