Product Description

Product Description

Young, ambitious gunman Nobody (Terence Hill) sets his eye on his idol, gunslinger Jack Beauregard (Henry Fonda), who's intent on sailing off into retirement.

Amazon.ca

My Name is Nobody is a spoof of spaghetti Westerns, but it's also a legitimate, highly regarded entry in the genre. Its pedigree is purebred, as it was executive produced by the maestro of spaghetti Westerns, Sergio Leone, as a personal farewell to the genre that he helped to create. It's a transitional film, cheekily acknowledging the impact of The Wild Bunch and Sam Peckinpah (whose name is seen on a gravestone in one scene) and the popularity of Terence Hill, whose comedic "Trinity" films represented the last gasp of the once-glorious spaghetti Western. All of these elements are beautifully combined in the amusing tale of Nobody (Hill), an ambitious young gunman in 1899 who idolizes a legendary gunslinger Jack Beauregard, played by Henry Fonda in his final Western (and his second for Leone, after the classic Once Upon a Time in the West). Before Beauregard can retire in peace, Nobody sets up a final showdown of epic proportions, and the great Ennio Morricone enhances the abundance of memorable scenes with one of his most playfully inventive scores (including a comical use of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries"). Tonino Valerii fully deserved his director's credit, but Leone also made significant contributions (including the opening scene), and the result is a delightful and surprisingly resonant film that Steven Spielberg later called his favorite Leone production. It's easy to see why: Like many of Spielberg's films, My Name is Nobody qualifies as both art and entertainment. --Jeff Shannon

This movie is far better than even Blazing Saddles. The best part is that despite the comedy it has a certain real feel to it. Terence Hill playes a young up-and-coming gun slinger who is determined to make Jack Beauregard, played by Henry Fonda, a legend. Unfortunately all Jack wants to do is retire and move to Europe. The two eventually become friends as Nobody follows Jack across the west tring to get him to take on the Wild Bunch.
Anyone who has seen a Terence Hill movie knows that they will leave you rolling on the floor laughing. Well this one is the best. Its also in enough tast that you would have no problem letting the entire family watch this one(which is rare indeed).

You might say "How can he be rating this movie when he doesn't own the DVD? Well I have the movie on VHS and it's a great one.
Almost every old cowboy movie is slow paced, "My name is Nobody" isn't any different but it's thoughtfully and very detailed. The story is great and has a great ending. The movie is both funny and serious.. mostly serious.
Of course the soundtrack of this movie is, to my opinion still unmatched by Ennio Morricone.. very moving stuff which really ties into the old west era.
Enjoy the movie!

Great movie! But... The quality of the video recording was quite annoying! There has to be a better one out there somewhere. I pray when it comes out on DVD that it's in letterbox. I've seen this flick on tv and it seems that this vhs recording was super zoomed when formatted. Most of the best scene in the movie, where Fonda has his big showdown, is lost "side to side". If your a big Terence Hill fan and your "jonsing" for this movie then click away otherwise wait for the remastered DVD edition.

My favorite movie bar none! I'm not a fan of typical westerns but this isn't a typical western. Terence Hill plays the up and coming gun slinger. He also plays the part of a guardian angle insuring Henry Fondas safe retirement from his gun fighting career. To bad Hollywood never recognized Terence Hill and put him in any other movies worthy of his ability. Thanks "Mike", my sisters boyfriend 20 years ago, for tapping this
for me.

Was looking for this video for years. I needed it since it's one of my all times favorite. You gotta have it too. This is Leone's masterpiece in its kind: all the elements of the spaghetti western plus the comedy part. Can't beat that. Sure, I bought it. Only thing is, it's a shame to have THAT specific edition in my collection. It is stuffed with mistakes and the cover is totally lame. First, it has written on it the cast from another Leone's movie with Quebec actor Robert Charlebois(wich they even spelled Charlesbois and that you guys at Amazon should carry). Also,they'd better have sticked to the groovy original hand drawn cover of Nobody and his red sock with a hole in it...Finally, the opening sequence is the original one written in italian. In one word, if you are looking for the famous MY NAME IS NOBODY, this is it. Go for it but if you are a maniac like me you can expect a little deception from this particular edition. Very sloppy one. If you're the average movie collector and are only looking for the content, it'll do for you.
What a great movie....

Terence Hill, from the famous western spoofs "They Call Me Trinity" and "Trinity Is Still My Name" is very much in character here playing "nobody." Instead of Bud Spencer co-starring as the straight man for his gags, as in the other films named, here veteran westerner Henry Fonda takes on that role. The results are excellent. The production values and directing are high-quality (except the dubbing) and in this regard the film is superior to all of the other Hill films. There is plenty of comedy, although not so much as in the Trinity films and Hill's modern spoofs (Crime Busters, Go For It, Odds and Evens). Wonderful touches are the influence of THE spaghetti western maker Sergio Leone, authentic (and authentically goofy) music by Ennio Morricone, and a genuinely good plot and character portrayal, including a poetically narrated ending to the film. This has got to be one of the best in the subgenre.

Tick tock...the clock ticks away. The famous gunslinger Jack Beauregarde sits in the barber's chair...an assassin menacingly strops the razor as Jack leans back in the chair, eyes closed...tick, tock, tick tock...the bandit swathes on the shaving foam and sets the razor to Jack's neck...the next sound is an ominous "click" and Beauregarde has his gun cocked at the assassin's nethers. After getting a nervously smooth shave he guns down all three assassins and sets the real barber free, giving him ten whole dollars! It has the best beginning and the best ending of any of the classic "spaghetti westerns," and it is my favourite...and who is "Nobody?" Well... as the barber explains to his son who asks "Ain't nobody faster than Jack Beauregarde?": "No son, nobody is faster than Jack Beauregarde!!!"

There are few good comedy Westerns. In fact in recent history I don't recall one since City Slickers. Back in the 60-70s you had Cat Ballou, Blazing Saddles, and a couple others. This should certainly be in any collection of Western Comedies. Henry Fonda does a great job of keeping a straight face as he plays the retiring gunfighter while Terrence Hill quips jokes at Fonda and does some slapstick fighting to amuse us. Hill steals the show with the hilarious scenes of him foiling the bad guys. It takes several viewings to catch all the jokes, but you won't mind as it has great replayability. I first saw this on TV in the late 70s and made a point to buy it on VHS when I could. I am now looking forward to getting the DVD.
