Man with No Name


  1. I woke up this morning and had an epiphany. Usually I wake up and have a bowel movement, but that came later.

    "Lost Name" and "west of Italy" refers to the man with no name and Spain where Clint Eastwood's three spaghetti westerns were shot. I believe now that you were specifically going for "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly", the last and best of the series.

    The cast, which included Eli Wallach and Lee Van Clef was awesome. Ennio Morricone's music was fantastic. It all came together in the climatic shootout in the center of the cemetery where Eastwood's character reveals to Tuco (Eli Wallach) that the gold is buried in the grave with no name beside that if Arch Stanton.

    I was nineteen and had just joined the Air Force when I saw the movie while on a six-hour pass during tech school. It has become one of my favorites, right behind every movie by John Wayne.
