Rob - Sorry the delay but I see that DarkPeguin has saved the day. Yes they are still in business as a mater of fact tI do believe they will now actually take a digital file! Great mag
Don - thanks for the reply; I almost got to Arizona once - had researched doing a western-style calendar at Old Tucson (I think that was its name) and the people there were very helpful with brochures and so forth. I had also looked at doing it at Tabernas, near Almeria in Spain, where Sergio Leone did his spaghetti versions of the genre, versions which, to my mind, were far better than the real deal from Hollywood. But it was not to be, and the client elected for another theme.
I think what makes me prefer Leone´s version of the western is that he doesn´t seem to think a lot of heroes; Mr Clint was always a bit of a rotter at the same time as he was saving the weak, much more as real people tend to be. Mr Wayne, on the other hand, if not winning the war in Europe, the Pacific, Texas or even on Mars all by himself, never convinced me about what he was trying to portray. Whether this was his fault or that of the directors I shall never know - it just didn´t work after I passed the age of twelve. Maybe there just wasn´t enough sex in them thar films. And now it´s all gone too far in the other direction. Hey - maybe I just got older!
Ciao - Rob C
