The 2008 Rolling Roadshow Tour
The Sergio Leone Edition

Every summer, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema takes to the road, departing from Austin, Texas on a whirlwind tour and hosting free 35mm screenings of famous movies in famous places. Known as The Rolling Roadshow Tour, it has been to the Field of Dreams in Iowa to show Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner live in person, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming for a screening of Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind and Alcatraz Island for a screening of Escape From Alcatraz. In 2008, The Rolling Roadshow Tour is paying tribute to one of the most influential film series of the modern age, Sergio Leone’s “dollars” trilogy, Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Holy Cow! How on earth do I convince my wife that this constitutes the perfect family holiday??

Thanks for alerting us to this Jack. It sounds like a terrific event.

Yeah, I’m thinking along the same lines, Phil. Tough sell!

Combining it with the Tuco Tour deal looks like a dream vacation to me…

I have just been fantasizing about making a trip to see this Rolling Roadshow and, as you do, I checked out some places to stay to get an idea on prices etc. While doing this I happened on a site for a hostal that has an english language option which I suspect has been built using a computer translation system for the copy.

I came to this conclusion when they advertise that the site was featured in the well known spaghetti western entitled ‘The Death Tapeworm a Price’. :smiley:

Sounds like a good one doesn’t it?

In case you are wondering what film this actually was, here’s a clue. It starred, among others, Gian Maria Steering Wheel. :smiley:

It seems the film is called in spanish La muerte tenia un precio in the original spanish site. In german they also talk about todes bandwurm(which is german for death tapeworm). Maybe it is el precio del hombre. At least this databse knows no film called la muerte tenia un precio, maybe its one of those really rare ones that sell on ebay for up to 300$, of course a used VHS with greek subtitles.

‘La muerte tenia un precio’ is the Spanish title for For a few Dollars more
The line is said in the beginning of the movie (death had it’s price)

It is a good example of why you should never trust a translation software programme. Unless you want a good laugh of course. But also why, if you do use them you need to be very accurate with what you put in.

Tenia (without an accent over the i) is apparently spanish for tapeworm (I speak a little rusty spanish but my vocab never extended to intestinal parasites.)
Tenia (with an accent over the i) means had.

As for Gian Maria, steering wheel is volante. What a difference a vowel change makes.

Having said that, I think I like the name. Gian Maria Steering Wheel sounds like a candidate for the Monster Raving Loony Party. Who may well get my vote at the next election.

[quote=“scherpschutter, post:9, topic:1018”]‘La muerte tenia un precio’ is the Spanish title for For a few Dollars more
The line is said in the beginning of the movie (death had it’s price)[/quote]It´s not listed in the database. And why did they have to change the title that much in spain? Wait, what is the direct translation of the orignial italian title Per qualche dollaro in più? Its for a few dollars more right(just checked it with translation programe). so in spanish it would be something like por un poce de dollares mas? Strange. I mean that germans and english distributors changed titles is expecting since the languages are very different, but spanish and italian are quite close.

The spanish dubbing is funny though. muchas gracias companero

Edit: It seems as it is listed in the database, but if you type it into the search engine nothing appears(maybe it has problems with the accent, but i tried both). There are alternative titles listed that are closer to the italian orginal though.

Ahhh…the Hostal Alba!!!
That is my favorite place to stay in Spain.
Of course, I am sure you are all aware that Los Albaricoques is the town they used for Agua Caliente in FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (it was also used in FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, TEPEPA, RINGO THE MARK OF REVENGE, and many others).
The owner of the Hostal Alba, Senor Manuel, is a huge fan of Spaghetti Westerns (his mother even had a small part in TEPEPA). Manuel has been instrumental in getting the famous duel arena from FAFDM restored–as well as many other things that highlight the town’s cinematic history.

If you go to Almeria, Los Albaricoques is a must-see!
And if you are there, you will definitely need to go to the Hostal Alba…if not to stay…to at least look at their lobby/dining area. You will see a selection of B&W stills there from FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE that were donated by yours truly in 2005.

I can’t wait to go back for another visit!!!

Thanks for the tip, Phil H and for the laughs!
I’ll bookmark that hostal…

I mentioned it to my ‘choir-mistress’ this morn, and she said “Oooh, you must go - it’s the chance of a lifetime.” … How good is that!!?
Still … I’m not sure I’ll be able to juggle the time around it though.


(Phil H) #16

I know what you mean Rev. I’m in the same boat. But I’m working on it.


(Tigrero) #17

Implying you can go without the sumptuous goddess (believe me…I’ve met her many times)…do I sense the best ever weekend pass for me, you and Phil H?


(Reverend Danite) #18

A kite flies better on a long string …

So many souls to save tho’. Mine is a wicked congregation indeed! And if the good Lord could see his way to providing a bit of extra ‘disposable’ it’d help as well.
I’ll give it some thought tho’ :).


(Phil H) #19

Let me know if you are serious boys. I’m pretty sure ‘’ 'er indoors " will sign the pass. It’s only really a matter of available cash and time.


(Tigrero) #20

Me and the Rev have been talking. We are both up fot it. Just a matter of sorting the logostics to see if it is feasible…flights, accomodation, beer supply…etc. We need to talk so I will PM you.
