Were any scorpions harmed in the filming of this?


Hahaha, just joking. I am wondering how they are going to do the scorpion scene in the remake. I hope it's not CGI.

I'm sure that there was a stunt scorpion used in that scene.

Appaloosa 2008 is not a remake of The Appaloosa 1966

How about the scorpion that the outlaw Josey Wales spat a gob of tobacco goo upon? What a harsh way to go.

Gob of goo. Gob of goo. Hmm. Didn't Brando call someone this in "The Appaloosa"?

I loved it when Brando, under escalating pressure by Saxon to sell the horse, told him "the only thing you're gonna give me is a bad case of worms"!

I don't know but this is the scene which saved this movie.

Brando called someone (seem to remember Timothy Carey) a "gob of spit" in One Eyed Jacks

Bingo!

No scorpions were hurt, but four cute goats were!
