Just thought I would mention that I went to the Fistful screening yesterday, Friday, at 5:30. The theater was only around half full, so anyone in the New York area who loves these films has no excuse to miss catching at least one of them in their remaining screenings.  ;)

Lucky KC! Old friend James here (how I took on Cheyenne's last name, only I and the webmaster know for sure!), or more accurately, unlucky amigo James.  The Leone films are always one step ahead or behind me in theaters as I travel, my curse! Missed them by moments last summer in several parts of the country, and I won't get to Manhattan till 2 weeks after they've left this time. Will Film Forum be showing later movies in his output when I arrive, I wishfully ask. I'd settle for even semi-related GENIUS at this point!

James! It's been a long time! It's good to see old friends again!  ;D

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is any more Leone in Film Forum's pipeline. As you might have noted elsewhere on this board, they did precede the "Dollars" trilogy (if it's a trilogy) with a week's worth of Duck You Sucker/Fistful of Dynamite ... but that is all. It looks as if your time in the city will coincide with a Josef von Sternberg retrospective ...

:D

I'll start whistling "Falling in love again" now  in place of something Alessandroni and that should psyche me up for Dietrich and Von Sternberg by the time I hit the city. Thanks as always for the info KC!

Too bad I didn't know about this sooner ... I just got Film Forum's latest e-mail newsletter when I turned on my computer at 8:30 tonight. It informed me that

Did anyone here get to see ol' Tuco?
