Its interesting that Lee contradicted himself in those two quotes.
As for Yul, he was actually quite slow on the draw according to Horst Buckholz. During the hand slapping scene, Horst had to wait for Yul to draw before starting to slap his hands.
well yes and no, actually I have not much confidence to this quote, I mean:
Now the footnote to all this was that after they finished up and were putting away their guns, Mark was expressing his amazement at how fast Lee had been. And Lee responded, “Well, if you think THAT was fast, you should see Clint. NO one beats Clint…” And Lee basically confirmed that what we see on film is not the result of clever editing or stand-in quick draw artists or anything else. It’s all Clint, and it’s all for real.
because it comes from a semi-official page of Clint Eastwood, and obviously, in any special page to any person, whole community would support him… but it was then that I started to have this doubt, doubt now would like you could help me solve, no one else, I just want to know Clint and Lee, if possible… about Yul, you refer to the movie of the Magnificent Seven, right? oh dear, I did not know that, I believed Yul slightly faster.
If Yul is on this pool so should Eli Wallach
I did not mean me specifically that, because, as I said earlier, I did not want to seem a kind of super-super fan of Clint and Lee, you know, not a type of fan seems exaggerated, I did not want to have that impression in this forum, but well, so I just want to know who was faster on the draw, Lee or Clint?
Lets get Django on the job with his machine gun and wipe everyone out
well, I meant not that, but it's funny and weird hahaha lol xD
Surely "Nobody" would win it?
I do not think so, it would be better to see the scene in a typical duel, not machine gun, of course. hahahahaha :P
I believe in howard hughes book, he breaks it down to LVC being quicker.
haha, me too :) that's one of the parts of text I quoted. n_n
