LVC's Favorite Movie

Often times people ask, which of LVC's films was his favorite?  There are many anecdotal responses, however below is a response to a fan letter, in LVC's own handwriting, that identifies his favorite as For a Few Dollars More.  The letter looks to be from around the mid-80's

Lee Van Cleef on Star Trek: The Next Generation?



Lee Van Cleef could have been Captain Picard?

One of the first documents released was a casting list from April 1987, with a rundown of potential actors to play Captain Picard. Interestingly, Patrick Stewart is not listed. Instead, a variety of actors including Yaphet Kotto, John Saxon, Billy Dee Williams, and Lee Van Cleef are displayed as possibilities.

Web Board To Close



I am sad to report that on October 31, 2019 the Lee Van Cleef Web Board will close.  This decision was made by YourWebApps.com, and is impacting all of their customers.

The Lee Van Cleef Web Board was launched in early 1998, and was the first online community where LVC fans could interact and share their passion for all things LVC.

Traffic to the board has decreased significantly in recent years with the rise of Facebook and similar communities.  TheBad.net has a Facebook page that can continue the legacy of the web board.  You can find it here

Meanwhile take a last visit to the Lee Van Cleef Web Board, and marvel at the simpler times of the internet.

This change will not impact this blog or TheBad.net webpage.  Thank you for the 21 years of support!
