New member


(Toscano) #1

Just thought I’d introduce myself as a new member…
Firstly, I consider it a great privilage that I’m able to be part of such a great site as this, and I look forward to chatting to a few other like-minded fans…
I’ve been a fan of the ‘Speggies’ for 32 years now, having been hooked after watching ‘The Good, The Bad & The Ugly’ on TV in 1976. I literally fell in love with the complete ‘Dollar Trilogy’ there and then, even though I had to wait until 1979 to watch the first 2, ‘Fistful of Dollars’ & ‘For a Few Dollars More’… All 3 movies brilliant!
I have nothing but respect for the Dollar Westerns, for Sergio Leone, Ennio Morricone, Clint Eastwood, Van Cleef, Wallach… the list goes on…
I’ve visited Almeria, Southern Spain, on 5 occasions, to visit the locations, and will be going back again next year to take many more photos to add to my albums.
I’m a bit disappointed (understatement!!!) that I couldn’t go to the ‘Rolling Roadshow’ screenings of the ‘Dollar’ movie in Almeria last week, 'cos I’d like to have met up with a few other fans… If anyone did attend, and has any photos etc., that they could e-mail me, I’d be very appreciative…
I look forward to speaking to a few of you desperadoes in the Saloon…"Might just turn you into the law…"
Hasta Luego, Amigos,
Toscano…

Hi Toscano, welcome aboard. So, after 32 years of SW exposure, which one is your favourite?


(Toscano) #5

Many thanks for the ‘welcomes’ so far…
Responding to Cian’s question about which Spaghetti I like the most…
Well, of the 3 Leone ‘Dollar’ Westerns, I’ve always found it difficult to name a particular favourite…because they are so darn good… I suppose ‘The Good, The Bad & The Ugly’ is probably the closest to my heart after 32 years, because it was the first I saw back in 1976, and it was this film, more than any - before or since - that influenced me the most… There’s something to enjoy in all 3 of the ‘Dollar’ movies… NOT forgetting - of course - those other fantastic Sergio Leone movies ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’, and ‘Duck You Sucker’!!
Of the many other Spaghetties made, I have a few other favourites… ‘The Big Gundown’, ‘Sabata’, ‘Face to Face’, ‘Death Rides a Horse’, ‘Navajo Joe’, ‘A Pistol For Ringo’, ‘The Great Silence’, and a few others as well…

I sgned up yesterday. I’m the youngest person in the forum according to Sebastian’s poll. I started loving the genre after seeing the dollars films. Luckily my local video store is the largest on the Pacific coast of the US so I can rent many SPWs.


(Sebastian) #14

great to have you, and great to see you so active already

Thanks. I have been waiting to sign up but I didn’t have my own Email before yesterday.
