Naido: Seriously though, they should have known it was Hal Croves, since that's an anagram for Veal Sorch


It's not widely known that it was actually adapted from an early Chuck Tingle effort.  Substantial changes had to be made to the original story of course...

The summer of 1986, when I was in high school, Big Audio Dynamite's "Medicine Show" was very popular on Salt Lake's new wave radio station. It features lots of sampled lines from Good, Bad, & Ugly, as well as a sample of the "stinking badges" line. Rewatching GB&U is fun to spot all the samples used in the song. But a couple samples are from other spaghetti westerns.

When I saw Sierra Madre on tv, and heard the Stinking Badges line, it was a weird "that's from the song!" moment.

"the creative person should have no other biography than his works."

This is why there's no information in my Fark profile.

Seriously though, they should have known it was Hal Croves, since that's an anagram for Veal Sorch

/I think it's still a very good movie

Wow...we got some cranky pants posting.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a great film.   The two Iraq wars were indeed started by a man named George Bush.  Did "Traven" steal the works?   Maybe,

All that aside, I had no idea about the mysterious B. Traven.   That's an interesting rabbithole to go down with my morning coffee.

There is a good article on wikipedia about it (yes, really)....

"While he may have been a brutal dictator, (Saddam) Hussein also had his sensitive side..."

I already knew this from watching South Park.
