Once Upon A Time In America / OUATIA Screenplay - first draft
« on: October 20, 2018, 08:00:50 AM »
EDIT: sorry for the too large images that stretch the page, I'll fix it later.

At the Paris exhibit, there were copies of the first draft of the screenplay by Norman Mailer. Interestingly enough, it seems to be written as a two parts movie, the second part of which had an estimated running time of 2 hours and 19 minutes.

Bonus pic: copy of The Hoods signed by Harry Grey.

At the Paris exhibit, they have a clip from Italian TV playing called "One Day On The Set Of Once Upon A Time In America". It features an interview of Leone on the set of the scene where old Noodles calls Fat Moe. The intercut the interview with BTS shot of the filming of the whole extended shot (the crane shot of Fat Moe closing his bar that ends on a close up of Noodles in the phone booth). We see Leone doing the scene as Fat Moe, then we see the take, with Leone asking for "less smoke" and stuff like that. Incredible stuff.

Has anybody ever seen it?

Once Upon A Time In America / James Woods 2012 interview
« on: October 15, 2018, 11:12:20 PM »

It’s in French.
James talks only about OUATIA in this interview. He mentions the ending of the film, it’s ambiguity, he confirms that the truck scene was shot with a double although Woods was on set and could have done it.
He says Leone told him he had a gift for him during the shooting of the final: they had the Morricone’s music ready. He wanted to see Woods cry so they played the music during the shot and Woods says it was the best moment of his entire career.

Film Locations / Checco er Carettiere
« on: September 21, 2018, 03:10:26 AM »
This isn't literally about a movie location but I feel like this is the most appropriate thread.

I was in Toscana and Rome for 15 days a few weeks ago, where I got to see countless masterpieces from Bernini and Caravaggio (the most Leonian painter if you ask me). One evening, while we were dining in a nice restaurant in Trastevere, Rome, I sent a stupid "Hey, I'm in Rome!" text message to our beloved Drinkanddestroy. He quickly advised (commanded?) that I go to "that restaurant with the school picture of Ennio and Sergio". I have to say I had totally forgotten about that place. A quick Google search taught me that said restaurant was called "Checco er Carettiere" and was exactly 7 minutes away from me. Needless to say, we went there.

I got to have a nice chat with the restaurant's crew who were all warm, friendly and helpful. They seemed surprised and delighted to see foreign tourists asking about Leone and Morricone. We also shook hands with the current owner (granddaughter of the founder of the restaurant, who's also on the school pic).

You'll find my photos here:

More pics of famous people who went to that restaurant on the official website:
The pic you can see at the top of this page with Leone, Garcia Marquez, M. Ali and DeNiro was shot in 1982 inside the restaurant (the wall behind them is quite recognizable).

Off-Topic Discussion / Filmmakers about Filmmakers
« on: April 16, 2018, 02:15:16 AM »
I really didn't know where to post the following clip since there is no thread about Friedkin, Refn, Sorcerer or Only God Forgives. So here it is:

Friedkin's reaction to Refn's claim that Only God Forgives is a masterpiece:

While we're there, another cool clip I found a couple of months ago:

Off-Topic Discussion / Noodles_Leone to NYC
« on: January 31, 2018, 08:35:12 AM »
Hey guys,
So I'm going to New York in march. Here is my schedule:

10th-15th : filming a short movie with a friend of mine you don't know and a former board member (Lewis Hawk)
16th-17th : writing alone or with former board member Lewis Hawk in the city
18th-24th : sightseeing with the girlfriend

I'd be glad to meet up with some of you.

Also, we're looking for interesting looking parts of the city that we don't see that often in films and commercials. Any idea?

Off-Topic Discussion / New videos by Noodles_Leone
« on: January 26, 2018, 05:22:50 AM »
Here are my 2 first videos of the year:



The official film of the year for the city of Marseille. One of my best on set experiences, with a great (and big) crew. Most of what we shot didn't end up in the movie because of the need to include many "postcard" stockshots, but I'm still quite happy with the result:

Official upload and its 166K view:
Much better quality upload on Vimeo:



The official music video of Romane Serda's new single, shot with a VERY minimal crew (we were 2).

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Pemiere Classics (french magazine)
« on: January 19, 2018, 05:05:07 AM »
One of the biggest movies magazine in France is called Premiere. They're starting a new collections of "Mooks" (in their own words: "contraction of magazine and book") called Premiere Classics. The second issue is about GBU.
I bought it despite the terrible layout and artworks but I don't think I'll have the time to read it in the coming week.
