I read in Frayling's " Something to do with Death " John Ford autographed a picture of himself wearing over-sized clothes saying " To Sergio Leoni, with admiration. "

Yeah, and leone said it was marvelous, he was not Leone, but Leoni, which means in Italian that there was not just one Leone but a lot.

And in the bonus of OUATIA, when he says: "when I started, I didn't know the names for all the terms, so when I wanted an extrem close up, I said: I want a Sergio Leone!"
Marvelous ;D (I don't like Tarantino!)

I believe that a part of the Eastwood costum was from his costum on Rawhide; the rest was to Leone (for Eastwood). Others costumes were rent or lend ( ???) by museum etc...

Well, our script is fat to be finish; were're working on for 18 months, but it makes a long time we dont write it, because we have other projects (I've shooted a modern western, and i'm going to put in on my FTP, and maybe make a English translation ;D).

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: French and Italian filmmakers in the 60's
« on: January 17, 2006, 06:21:29 AM »
That's true that French people in the 60's liked very very muche the films noirs. They liked westerns too, but it was not the most popular genre, which was the crime movie (film noir). I believe it is because it was a contexte: we are great gangsters durong this period, and people heard of them. Murder, prostitution, drugs etc... were daily. So it was maybe a kind of way to see "good people" win this battle.
But as I said, Westerns were liked. OUATITW is stayed during TEN YEARS in a theater!!! TEN YEARS!!! Amazing. Leone knew that, and one day he went to watch his movie. A lot of people asked him for autographs; just one personn came to see him (it was the projectionnist), and sayed: "It makes years this movie is here. I saw it thousands of time. And it's too long..." The poor man  ;D

Yeah, snow is a good landscape, but my first western should be in a desert land, because it's more... Leone  ;D
My story is between a leone movie, for the time, and Unforgiven, for pityless and violence. A Spaghetti/Hamburger Western  :P
