 8) hola! today I went to a second-hand book shop that I often visit and found the paperback - A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE by James Lewis - "An explosive story of revolutionary Mexico", published by TANDEM (who also published the dollars trilogy)  wow! I mean, I never knew this existed! so now, I have novelisations of all the Leone films except OUATIA... anyone know if it exists?

Well, there''s Harry Grey''s Hoods (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0899665497/nopatience/026-9114965-3853234) which I think was later reissued as Once Upon a Time in America (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0747531862/nopatience/026-9114965-3853234). Donno if that''s what you were looking for though.

I''ve got a book in italian called "C''era una volta in America", which is a translation from the original "Once upon a time in America" by Lee Hays. This book was written after the movie and it is based upon the original movie script. Published by arrangement with the New American Library, New York, N.Y. Copyright by The Ladd Company, 1984.
It is basically the script of the movie.

 8) hola amigos. please excuse me, I meant to say I don''t know of the novelisation of OUATITW! you are quite right about the Lee Hays novelisation which I have (unlike the others, this contains some cool photos from the film) I did a web search and came up with no listing for a novel of OUATITW... then again I did the same for A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE some time ago and I found it just yesterday, so who knows...?  ;)

Actually forgot about this. Found this small hardback 1973 film theory book in a secondhand bookstore last summer. For a couple of coins. The jacket was a eye catcher.
Not much is actually covered on Giu La Testa. Leone gets two paragraphs. Wonderful beginners guide to film theory. Fantastic chapter on the western film in general thou. And a large section on peckinpah's Wild Bunch.
