A few years ago I tried to buy this book but without success.  It was listed on an Italian site but it was an error and the title is no longer available.

It was quite expensive (about 80 euros) but contains 318 pages and although I've not seen a copy, some of the photos look interesting.

Title: C'era una volta in America : photographic memories : un film di Sergio Leone
Author: Marcello Garofalo
Publisher: Editalia
First published in 1988 (100 euros)
In Italian
318 pages with lots of photos
Out of print

It's rare but second hand copies are advertised from time to time.

The following site had one for sale at 80 euros but it may have now been purchased:

Yup - says it was bought on the website.

I would be interested (of course not paying more than 80 euros or so) providing the images were predominantly behind the scenes stuff or deleted scenes etc. I wouldn't be so interested in just pretty stills from the film that I could appreciate by watching the film itself.

I live fairly close to the Library of Congress in Washington DC which has a staggering amount of books from all over the world. However, it doesn't look like they have a copy of this one.

I agree about the photos. 318 pages and 550+ photos sounds a lot but from the samples provided by the seller  - 23 pages and about 55 photos - most of them look similar to those in the movie or have been published elsewhere.

Provided I was satisfied about delivery, I'd probably go a bit higher than the original price - say $200.

Jordan I was given the book as a present about 10 years ago - my book came in a slipcase but without the dust jacket
It was purchased online from an Italian rare book shop/website but not sure of price.  The book was published in 1988 by Editalia (Rome) ISBN: 88-7060-192-7.  The book is basically a collection of  photos taken by Angelo Novi the OUATIA set photographer (black and white & colour) some of the photos I had seen before - others I hadn't.  There is also a few original 1920's/30's black & white photos which i think Leone used for research purposes.  The book is written in Italian and one day I'll try and get around to translating it into English.  I think it's a wonderful book and feel very lucky to own a copy - unfortunately the book is out of print but copies do pop up from time to time online - hopefully the ISBN number will help you and others track a copy down😉👍

Novecento there is an interesting photo of Edward G Robinson in Little Ceasar - it's the iconic photo of EGR wounded holding his arm with a shop window riddled with bullet holes in the background - beside that photo is a photo of Leone on the Montreal/Joe ambush set - he is inspecting the car window which is also riddled with bullet holes and is obviously a replication/nod to Little Ceasar.  Another interesting one is a photo of Noodles in a theatre audience (again in Montreal) where he is watching Deborah/1933 perform her (cut) Busby Berkeley routine.

I have taken quite a few photo's from the book, hope you guys enjoy them.  The book literally has hundreds.  On a side note, I had the pleasure of directing David Warbeck in his last movie 'Sudden Fury' 1997 (my first) and have just finished working with Dan Van Husen a veteran of over 20 spaghetti westerns.

Ok great, I should have told you to then choose the "direct" url from photobucket (they give you different choices) copy and paste that one here and then highlight it, and then click on the picture frame that appears in the squares just above the winking smiley face that is just above the box you type in. Then they would show up directly, as a photo instead of the way they just come up as links now.

It's more user friendly and quicker.  O0

What do you mean, you directed David Warbeck in Sudden Fury? You're Craig R. Baxley?

My name is Darren Ward.  I have quite a lot of Leone bits, so when I can find some time I will post up posters etc, if you guys are interested?  I actually held Warbeck's script for Giu la Testa and had a few hours going through it along with some horror's like 'The Beyond' amazing times!

It would be nice to see some "new" stuff. I started some Memorabilia Threads years ago,

Right - the actor who played Sean's friend Nolan in "Duck, You Sucker!"

Thanks very much!!

If copies of this book are available anywhere, I'd be willing to pay a lot of money for it. (So would many other, I am sure.)

Next best thing: You can post here as many pages as possible  :)

Thanks again  O0 O0 O0
