Why are some films called spaghetti westerns?

Because they show people eating spaghetti a lot?

Just kidding.

Western produced in Italy in the 1960s and 1970s are called Spaghetti Western simply because they were produced in Italy. If they had been filmed in France they might have been called Baguette Westerns.

From the book lonesome dove the quote uva uvam vivendo varia fit was used what does it mean?

I have read that Larry McMurty purposely used incorrect Latin because of his characters(Gus wrote the phrase on the sign). The scrambled meaning of the phrase translates to a "grape changes color [i.e., ripens] when it sees [another] grape." This would explain why Gus says "you ride with an outlaw you die with an outlaw" when they catch Jake with the horse thieves, meaning that you show your true colors in the presence of others. From what I have read, it means something along the lines of "one vine becomes the whole vine" or "one grape causes the others to ripen". In essence, I believe that McMurtry was trying to convey the legacy of Gus and Call and the importance of friendship and companionship. From what I have read, it means something along the lines of "one vine becomes the whole vine" or "one grape causes the others to ripen". In essence, I believe that McMurtry was trying to convey the legacy of Gus and Call and the importance of friendship and companionship. ANOTHER VIEW The sign for the Gus and Call's Hat Creek Cattle Company includes the Latin motto "Uva Uvam Vivendo Varia Fit" which appears to be a reference to a proveb ("Uva Uvam Videndo Varia Fit") first attributed Juvenal. Juvenal's proverb is translated as "A grape (uva) other grapes (uvam) seeing (videndo) changes (varia fit)." Some readers think McMurty's substitution of "vivendo" for "videndo" is an artifice McMurty used to underscore Gus's lack of education and unfamiliarity with Latin. That seems unlikely. When Call asks Gus about the motto, Gus jumbles it comically and does not even pretend to know what it means. Having established that, McMurty gained nothing by adding a spelling error that only Latin scholars would catch. Likewise, it seems unlikely - as other readers have suggested - that the substitution was simply a typographical error. Although the substitution is ungrammatical, "vivendo" means "living" so the effect is that the motto is changed from "A grape changes when it sees other grapes" to "A grape is changed by living with other grapes" or, since we are not really concerned with grapes after all, "We are changed by the lives around us." ELABORATION: They were settled in in Lonesome Dove and had an environment they were comfortable in and that they understood. Capt. Call wanted to see Montana and in doing so changed all of the lives around him. One ripple in time changed all their lives. Lonesome Dove as Tragedy It's difficult to know what a writer is thinking, regardless of how "obvious" their meaning seems to be. There is a number of plausible explanations for the novel's title, but McMurtry's -- that it refers to Newt! -- seems wayward, if not downright perverse. Because Lonesome Dove is such a beloved work, people overlook the fact that it's an extremely unhappy story. (McMurtry even said that he didn't understand why such a depressing novel was so popular.) Almost every character has their life lost, destroyed, or "merely" badly damaged (Newt being the obvious exception), simply because they went on an unnecessary journey. Xavier Wantz's grisly, gratuitous suicide is typical of McMurtry's delight in torturing his characters (both physically and psychologically). However pompous it might sound, I think of Lonesome Dove as "The Wizard of OZ meets Das Lied von der Erde". It therefore seems reasonable that this (mis-)quote is consciously meant ironically. The very thing that does not happen is that (with the exception of Newt), there is no "ripening". People are no different -- no "riper" -- at the end of the story than they were at the beginning, either because of other peoples' examples (videndo) or simply their passage through life (vivendo). No one changes, no one matures.

What Rifle did the rifleman carry?

The rifle is a modified Winchester Model 1892 (even though the show was set in the year 1880). In addition to two of the Winchester guns, a Spanish-made Gárate y Anitúa "El Tigre" lever action (a close copy of the Winchester) was used in scenes where the rifle would be dropped, used as a club, etc) to keep from damaging the Winchesters. The rifles were in caliber 44-40, and shot 5-in-1 blank cartridges on the show.

Famous Quotations

Who said A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do?

Fred MacMurray said it in "The Rains of Ranchipur" in 1955.

At the end of 1955 film critic Clyde Gilmour awarded it a prize for the stupidest phrase ever used in a movie.

Nobody knows.

John Wayne is often credited with saying this in "Stagecoach" but what he actually said (I checked the screenplay) is "Well, there's some things a man just can't run away from."

Wayne is also reported to have said this line in "Hondo" (1954). Nope, his line there is: "A man ought'a do what he thinks is best."

Many people think the line came from "Shane" (1953). Wrong again. In that film Joe Starrett (Van Heflin) said:"I couldn't do what I gotta do if I hadn't always knowed that I could trust ya" and later, Shane (Alan Ladd) says: "A man has to be what he is."

Charlton Heston is also claimed by some to have uttered the famous line in the 1956 movie "Three Violent People." Close but no cigar. What Heston says is: "A man must do what he must do." He says it twice in the same scene, word for word the same way.

Several websites say a variation of the line appeared that same year in the book (not the film version) of THE GRAPES OF WRATH: chapter 18 of Steinbeck's novel reportedly has the line "I know this man -- a man got to do what he got to do."

Reportedly by 1962 the line was already a cliche and was used mockingly in an episode of "The Jetsons." George Jetson says: "Ha, 'a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do'. I should've won three space Oscar awards."

Care of Horses

What was the name of Tom Mix's horse?

Thomas Hezikiah ka Tom Mix [January 6, 1880-October 12, 1940] may have made as many as 336 films between 1910 and 1935. He made a successful transition from silent films, to talking movies. For his last nine films were talkies. As a film star, Mix was considered the king of the cowboys. For he set the standard upon which all heroic cowboy roles and all Western action plots were modeled. It was a standard that drew upon distinct costumes and stunt riding. So key to the movie was the role of the horse. And Mix's films particularly benefited from the participation of three favorites: Old Blue, until 1919; Tony the Wonder Horse, until 1929; and Tony Jr. the Miracle Horse, until 1935. Tony the Wonder Horse first appeared in The Heart of Texas, in 1917. As Mix's main horse from 1919-1929, Tony became most popular with audiences, who sent him weekly fan mail. He even starred in films that focused on his popularity by titles such as Just Tony, in 1922. For the films showed him not just responding to typical commands such as 'Whoa', but also reacting to more complex missions in whole sentences. And they showed his skills as a stunthorse. Tony actually retired from films in 1929. But the news wasn't official, or made public, until 1932. By that time, successor Tony Jr., who wasn't an equine relative, already taken his place. Tony the Wonder Horse was put down, at the ripe old horse age of 32, on October 10, 1942.
