Trailer of the Moment: Colonel Mortimer Will Have His Trailer!

In celebration of Clint Eastwood's 80th birthday today here's the trailer for thee film which inspired the name of this here blog, the second film of Sergio Leone's Dollar Trilogy, For a Few Dollars More.

Some interesting aspects concerning this trailer:

1.) The groovy red and blue font of the title and actor's names

2.) Pretty much no mention of any plot points, it focus primarily on action sequences

3.) Makes no reference to Eastwood's character as being "The Man With No Name" a major focus of United Artists' advertising strategy (see poster to the left)

4.) When A Fistful of Dollars was released many of the Italian names of the cast and crew were Americanized to hide the films European origins. After Dollars' overwhelming success, it seems like the ruse was no longer necessary so director Sergio Leone gets credited here both by the pseudonym Bob Robertson and his actual name as does actor Gian Maria Volonte who was credited in the first film as John Wells.

Here's the trailer:

If you happen to be watching Turner Classic Movies today, they are showing a selection of Eastwood films including his three collaborations with Leone.

As for the man himself, he shows no signs of slowing down, after directing five films in the last three years, he has another one set for release this year and is already in pre-production on his next project.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
