Subject: RE: BS: 'Blow the bloody doors off':American tra
As I recall (from some interview I believe) the 'bloody' got dropped by Caine as an ad-lib ("You're only supposed to blow the doors off" doesn't quite have the same ring).

The Japanese film that was copied/mined/ripped off/reference (choose your own term) to become "Fistful of Dollars" and "Last Man Standing" was (I believe) "Yojimbo"('The Bodyguard'), not a bad film I seem to recall (It's a long time since I sat through a Japanese film<1>).
