    Too much dialogue can easily ruin a film in my opinion. ... :cool:

    Italian film director and father of the spaghetti westerns was a master of letting the scene speak for itself.

    The sweat dripping off the villain's face in the hot noonday sun. The squeaking windmill slowly turning as the intensity of the scene builds.

    One of the three bad guys sent to kill the man who just got off the train says, "Looks like we didn't bring you a horse". And the man replies, "No, you brought two to many horses".

    I am working my way through a book of Elmore Leonard western stories at the moment. I will have a look out for it after.

    I am not a fan either. I find the plots a bit far fetched, particularly when it comes to the fights.
