Some state it is in Spanish, which is not the case. Interviews are in Italian, English, Spanish, German. The non-italian parts are subtitled in Italian otherwise there are no subtitles..

I'm a diehard Sergio fan, I buy anything regarding behind the scenes or documentaries
I can get.
I can't say it's a good film. Nice interviews (excerpts are on the Italian SE DVD FOD, the red one with the
lobby cards reprints and the nice book..) but it is not a real film. For that you need a concept, ideas,
direction & some talent. Leone would deserve a definitve film, like the Kubrick doc, the film
a Woody Allen lately or my film on Peckinpah maybe. One reason why I made my film was for instance
that up to then I had only seen interviews on Peckinpah, but no statements by him and now
behind the scenes footage. As a result the man himself is represented in PASSION & POETRY
quite alright I guess. In this Leone film (2 hours!) there is not one single Sergio Interview or
rare appearance.. Just a few behind the scenes stills.

So Sam versus Sergio in a duel.... who gets your vote?

So I just looked on the back cover of my Italian BD and its says right there under contenuti speciali "Sergio Leone. Cinema Cinema di Carles Prats". I think it's actually the complete version on there and I'm pretty sure I must have actually watched it at some point.

Alright... so they put some excerpts on the DVD and the whole show on BD...
Back then I had no BD yet. And since I have one, I ONLY add BD's the my archive.
Guess I'm becoming spoiled.

Sam vs. Serge ?
They both were the (somehow) hippiest filmmakers in the 60s/70s and
both directed feature films from 1962 - 1983. Both died quite young and
changed cinema altogether.

Leone is my #2. Simply because his films were never as deep as Sam's.
Although with GIU and OUATIA he progressed quite a bit. I watch Leone's films
for 35 years now and never get tired.
Cinema, Super-8, 16mm, VHS, TV, LaserDisc, DVD, Blu-ray.
I'm all for 'vision' and Sergio's vision was unique and exactly my cup of tea.
But I also think that without Morricone and various other people he would not have become
the cinema icon he became in the end. I hate Top 10 lists anyway. I rate Ford and Kubrick
higher than Sergio, but I don't watch their films every year. But Sergio's! So who's more
important to me?

Leone or Peckinpah?

That's like asking who was better, Tyson or Spinks. Dom Perignon or grape soda. Claudia Cardinale or Mara Krupp.

p.s. I went to FAFDM's IMDB page to look up the name of Mara Krupp, and she is described in the credits list as "Mary - Hotel Manager's Beautiful Wife."  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059578/ ;D ;D ;D Somebody there has a sense of humor. (Musta been the same guy who put Peckinpah and Leone in the same sentence.)
