Those question marks are supposed to be quotation marks. I don't know what happened. :(

They were unnecessary with the italics anyway.

Character set encoding, I'll betcha. God knows what you're using to write these, but it needs to be in Unicode or ISO-8859-1.

Not to distract from some of the greatest movies of all time. Yay, Clint. Warning: do not play the "drink whenever someone dies" game, or you will be passed out in the yard before the credits are finished. For a Few Dollars More has a body count in the thousands, I'm sure.

Now that is a fantastic idea. I am jealous of your weekend.

I have been doing it in Word then cut and pasting it into Firefox. Maybe I should use Notepad after I do spell check in Word.

Elswinger tried to get a job at the P-I. He's just jealous of real journalists. Plus he's almost certainly short and bald, and afraid of dogs.

Happy freaky Friday!

I refuse to even touch an issue of the PI. The only way I would is if there were naked pictures of Anderson Cooper...or anyone, really.

Nothin' wrong with a lil' peepin'.

don't use Word! firefox has built-in spell check. use notepad or something else, but Word is a Slog killer.

I'm not afraid of dogs if they are deep fried and served on a stick.

Elswinger if you like that dvd set and enjoy the soundtracks to that eras movies surf and check out these samples from Its a sure fire way to get you in the mood and stifle boredom. too bad some tracks are only 2 minutes but sometimes thats enough to see where they were comming from the arts as musicians and filmakers worked together back in the 60s

Can't go without mentioning the contribution of Ennio Morricone to these films. He's a frickin' genius! (macgruber!) The little music box scenes in A Fistful of Dollars are some of the most captivating musical experiences on film.

Thanks! I am a big fan of MovieGrooves. They have imported versions of the Eastwood western soundtracks, chockful of bonus tracks. In the past, the soundtrack to For a Few Dollars More has been relegated to half a CD, but the expanded Italian version adds 14 tracks (totaling 45 more minutes) of more music from the film. They also have an expanded soundtrack for A Fistful of Dollars. In the states we only got an expanded soundtrack for The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. This is probably due to three different U.S. record companies releasing the soundtrack albums, despite all three films being released by United Artists (now MGM/UA).
