Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Recently my dad came to stay with me. He was here for SXSW and to see my brother’s big night as part of the cast of My Sucky Teen Romance, which had a big Paramount Theater premiere. Growing up he loved Connery Bonds and Leone Spaghetti Westerns… and sure enough, one night I came in from some midnight South By flick and he was asleep on the couch with The Good, The Bad and The Ugly playing on the TV.
Since then I’ve been in a Spaghetti Western kind of mood, so that’d explain why today’s shot from Sergio Leone’s amazing Once Upon A Time In The West jumped out to me, demanding to be run.
Next to Leone’s Man With No Name films, Once Upon A Time In The West is my favorite. Charles Bronson is unreal in this flick as the baddest harmonica playing gunslinger ever. Even more unreal is Henry Fonda playing against type as the most cruel steel-eyed bastard ever. It really is a must see flick if you haven’t given it a spin yet. I mean, this film has story by credits from Dario Argento, Bernardo Bertolucci and Leone. What a power team, right?

Tomorrow the Behind the Scenes Pic continues in this genre with another great son of a bi-ah-ahahaha!
