yeah, 2 be honest hasnt he covered everything in something to do with death.

He even has a complete filmography in the back - i think Prof Frayling is trying to cash in a bit now.

he hasn't done a complete analyse of these movies... that could be very interesting...

Yes looks like cash in time!!
When i first saw the title on hippieoddball1's post i thought it was the book out now ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE ITALIAN WEST by Howard Hughes, an expanded followup to the POCKET ESSENTIALS: SPAGHETTI WESTERNS by HH. Maybe CF has been holding some info back for this book. We'll see.

CF''s new book was news to me.I''m surprised,because I thought he would leave the topic of spaghetti westerns after STDWD.

However,it may be that the "new wave" of spaghettis that the new OUATITW and GBU DVD''s started has prompted the professor to dig the topic even more.

Excellent! I see that the book is being published to tie in with the Leone exhibit in Los Angeles this summer.

Anybody know if they''ve scheduled Frayling to do any signings or lectures in L.A. to coincide?

Is this almost like a revision (edited highlights) of middle 5 chapters of the Something to do with Death book?

Like the For A Few Dollars More RCA Soundtrack art for the cover.

Somehow I had a $50 gift from Amazon, so I ordered the book yesterday with it.

I''ll also be going to the Leone exhibit (from Phoenix), probably in early August before the kids go back to school.  I probably can''t stay in L.A. long enough for both the Alex showing on the 23rd and the opening of the exhibit on the 23rd.

According to Amazon, "the book accompanies an exhibition opening in July 2005 in Los Angeles".

Hi,

I just sent away for this - the latest Leone reference. Has anyone gotten
it yet? - if so, how is it?

I just received my copy, but have just started it.  Looks good to me so far.   The intro is from a curator from the Western Museum in L.A., where the Leone exhibit starts next week.  I'm going to see that in early August, will report back.  I also have Something to do with Death, and recommend that.

i have it and i love it. its a strange one, its half pics and posters and half interviews, but great interviews. Lee Van Cleef from an old alex cox interview. everyone the only disapointment for me was that their is no Gian Volante mention or interview.
enjoy.

Thanks guys - I can't wait. As much as I love 'Something' I think my favorite
Leone book is 'Legendary Dream of America', it's gorgeous. You guys
have that one?

Oh my God :-[ I have been so out of the loop. I didn't know Christopher Frayling' wrote another book.  His first book, I couldn't find it for years as it was out of print. I almost stole it from the library but my mom got mad at me. A Leone exhibit? I didn't know about that either. >:( Canada sucks for anything Western. And an Alex Cox interview with Lee? Is that the Alex Cox from Sid and Nancy fame?

Yes, I have been living in a cave on a desert island. Please fill me in on all these strange things of which you speak.

Yesterday, the baby cat jumped up on my mantlepiece and knocked my copy of 'Once Upon a Time in Italy' to the ground; that tore off the covers, made a real mess of it. 

I glued it back the best I could, and contemplated having barbequed cat for dinner....first my GBU mug bit the dust, now this....

It's funny how the cat chose such a nicely illustrated book!
