“Every gun makes its own tune.”

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly  screens at The St. Louis Public Library Central Branch (1301 Olive Street St. Louis) Saturday, August 6th at 1pm. This is a Free event. 

There’s a new film series in town! To celebrate the Summer Reading Program theme, “Worlds of Wonder,” Central Cinema at the St. Louis Library will be screening some of the most unique and fantastical films ever shown on the big screen. This weekend is Sergio Leone’s 1966 epic The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.

In 1964, Clint Eastwood accepted the lead role in a Western being filmed in Spain titled “The Magnificent Stranger.” The part had been offered to many of Hollywood’s most rugged actors, including Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, and Charles Bronson. Eastwood, on break from his TV series Rawhide and looking for a film project, immediately recognized the story as »

Fantasia 2016 Review: In A Valley Of Violence Is A Talky If Slight Examination Of Western Tropes

19 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

In Sergio Leone's classic The Good The Bad And The Ugly, one of many iconic scenes involves a gunfighter sneaking up to murder Eli Wallach's Tuco in the bath-tub. The anonymous heavy lost his arm in a shootout with Tuco in the opening scene of the film, and seeking bloody revenge, as is par for the course in so many westerns, he stops first for a smug monologue about how it took months to learn how to shoot with his other hand. As the grimy, Italian, blonde savours the reversal of fortune (again, a staple of this superb film) with words, Tuco turns the table because he has his pistol in the bath-tub. He blows away the smug, would-be killer through the soap suds. To...

With the Ghouls in Lawrence, Kansas

7 July 2016 8:05 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Guest writer Bill Shaffer takes us back to Lawrence Kansas in 1989, for a cast and crew re-premiere of Carnival of Souls. By Bill Shaffer Note from Glenn Erickson: I think I first crossed emails with Bill Shaffer around 1998, when I was still the editor for MGM Home Video and just beginning to write MGM Video Savant. Bill sent along info that helped me convince the MGM restorers to include a flashback at the end of Duck You Sucker. Although I didn't find out until much later, Bill was a producer at the PBS station Ktwu in Topeka, Kansas, and had actually interviewed Eli Wallach once about The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Bill became a major source for info and connections when it came time to do the extras for the MGM releases of the Sergio Leone movie; all just to help out. I think the fact that »

Bud Spencer, Italian Spaghetti Westerns Star, Dies at 86

28 June 2016 1:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Bud Spencer, the burly Italian actor who starred in dozens of genre movies including many widely exported Spaghetti Westerns such as “Trinity is Still My Name,” which is among Italy’s all-time top grossing titles, has died. He was 86.

Spencer, whose real name was Carlo Pedersoli, passed away “peacefully” in Rome on Monday, his son Giuseppe Pedersoli said in a media statement that did not disclose the exact cause of death.

In the late 1960s, just as his acting career was starting to take off, Carlo Pedersoli changed his name to Bud Spencer as an homage to Budweiser beer and Spencer Tracy. He also reportedly thought it was ironic to call himself Bud despite his Herculean physique, which made him known to his fans as “the big friendly giant” of the screen.

Born in Naples in 1929, Spencer first gained a measure of fame as an athlete, becoming the first »

Happy 86th Birthday Clint Eastwood! Here Are His Ten Best Films

31 May 2016 5:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 86 years old. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit. Sully, his new movie as a director, opens in September.

We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here

Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

By the 1980s, Clint Eastwood was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.  With his own production company, directorial skills, and economic clout, Eastwood was able to make smaller, more personal films.  A perfect example is the underrated Honkytonk Man, which also happens to be one of Eastwood’s finest performances. »

First 'The Magnificent Seven' Trailer: Denzel and Pratt Lead a Few Good 'Strays'

20 April 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When Chris Pratt isn't acting as guardian of the galaxy (and dinosaurs), he protects the Old West. Based on the first trailer for "The Magnificent Seven" remake, Pratt is bringing the same winking charm to his role as gambler Josh Farraday, opposite Denzel Washington as the leader of the new Seven.

The original "The Magnificent Seven" came out in 1960, starring Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Horst Buchholz, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That film was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece "Seven Samurai." This new Western sticks with the concept of wrangling a bunch of "strays" to help protect a town, but with a more diverse cast (of men, anyway).

Here's the synopsis from Sony:

"Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' and Columbia Pictures' The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under »

First 'Magnificent Seven' Remake Photos Team Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt

19 April 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week during CinemaCon, the banner for MGM's highly-anticipated The Magnificent Seven debuted, giving us our first look at the all-star cast. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait much longer for even more images, with USA Today revealing the first official photos, along with the news that the first trailer is set to debut Wednesday, April 20. The site also spoke with director Antoine Fuqua, who shed some light on how this incredible cast came together.

The original 1960 Western classic directed by John Sturges featured an ensemble cast including Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and James Coburn, centering on a group of gunslingers hired by a Mexican village to stop a tyrannical bandit from terrorizing their town. The remake's cast is just as impressive, lead by Denzel Washington, who is collaborating with director Antoine Fuqua for the third time, following the critically-acclaimed Training Day and The Equalizer. »

Denzel and Pratt Lead The Way In Fuqua's 'Magnificent Seven' Remake (Photos)

19 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is a beautiful property. For Hollywood, it's been the gift that keeps on giving. The 1954 film was first remade as a western in 1960 as The Magnificent Seven. It did something monumental back then, as it united several of the biggest, most-beloved actors of that time in a single film. It gave each of them a cool character and a chance to shine. While it took some time to catch on, the film would eventually be considered a big hit for United Artists. That film led to sequels and, eventually, a TV adaptation.

Now director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) is hoping to strike gold in the old west again. We've known for some time that he's amassed an impressive cast, and now- thanks to USA Today- we've got our first look at this massive ensemble.

Take a look at the new The Magnificent Seven:

Actress Anne Jackson, Widow of Eli Wallach, Dies at 90

13 April 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anne Jackson, who collaborated extensively with husband Eli Wallach, together comprising one of the best-known acting couples of the American theater, died Tuesday at her home in Manhattan. She was 90.

As a couple, Jackson and Wallach (together above) came close to the level of celebrity of Lunt and Fontanne or, later, Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. For five decades beginning in the early 1950s and ending in 2000, when they starred Off Broadway in Anne Meara’s comedy “Down the Garden Paths,” they energized theater audiences with a wide range of synergistic emotions, from loving to combative.

While Wallach had his own big-screen career (he died on June 24, 2014, at age 98) that included “Baby Doll” and “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” Jackson had a stage carer that was impressive all on its own. She was critically hailed for her range of chracterizations in David V. Robison’s “Promenade, All!” (1972) and »

On this day in pop culture history: Frank Sinatra’s final screen role

25 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

29 years ago today, CBS aired music icon Frank Sinatra’s final screen role. He guest starred in an episode of Magnum, P.I. In the episode, titled “Laura,” Sinatra played a retired New York cop who learns that his granddaughter was murdered during his retirement celebration. He asks Magnum for help in his hunt for the murderers. Sinatra appeared on the cover of TV Guide with Magnum, P.I. star Tom Selleck the week his episode aired. Though the CBS detective series was Sinatra’s final screen acting role, he could have had a part in The Godfather: Part III afterward. Francis Ford Coppola offered Sinatra the role of Don Altobello, but he didn’t end up taking the part. Oddly enough, the part went to Eli Wallach, whom Sinatra replaced in From Here to Eternity.   Other notable February 25 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: Variety show Your Show of Shows premiered on NBC. »
