Once Upon a Time at Delavigne Corp

Wow! What an exciting Funky Friday! But who will be the sheriff? I was of course offered the role, but I have some previous musical commitments (I need to buy a new string for my guitar).

Talking of music, I'm going to leave you with a clip of arguably the best piece of music ever written for a Western. It's from Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West and the music was written by Ennio Morricone. (You'll notice he has the same initials as me - no wonder his music is brilliant!).

Note the famous actor who plays the villain Frank. Why do you think audiences were shocked when they first saw his face?

Bye for now!

I think they were shocked because he did not shave himself. Am I right?

No, especially after we saw him in this excellent, brilliant movie '12 Angry Men', as the good, immacculate guy who tries to save the young defendant's life.

Yes, no one was expecting Henry Fonda to be a bad guy! And he is very bad in this film, in a good way!

Well, I want to take up the cudgels for the excellent, paramount movie '12 Angry Men'. I had never known Henry Fonda as an actor very much, until I came across this movie recently (also to hone my English skills, by the way - every movie which takes my fancy comes handy).

That movie, '12 Angry Men' is surely one the best movies I've ever seen. And I don't say that light-heartedly. I really mean it.

I was spellbound. There are no special effects, hardly any music and the plot takes places almost entirely in the same meeting room - and yet the plot and the preeeminent actors draw you into the story right away - and not a single minute in this movie is boring or without suspense.

It's an absolute masterpiece. And I cannot recall that nowadays a move like this has been made again: with such simply means, very austere and spartan - and yet so spellbinding just by the script and the acting.
