Once Upon A Time In The West / A Tribute
« on: April 30, 2010, 04:52:06 AM »

On this, the 21st anniversary of Leone's death, I have posted a tribute to OUATITW on my blog. The post may not contain anything a true Sergio Leone fan hasn't heard before, but I hope it at least conveys my genuine passion for the film. Hope you can drop by and let me know what you think.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Photo Galleries

Can anyone provide links to some good photo galleries of OUATITW. I've found some through the IMDB, but they're kinda paltry. I've been scouring the web, and though I have found some good photos, I'm not satisfied. For the life of me, I can't find more than a photo or two of Cheyenne and Jill talking at the Sweetwater ranch.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Painterly compositions

I just read the following quote from Frayling in an interview posted on this site: "Leone showed Tonino Delli Colli the paintings and engravings of Rembrandt before shooting 'Once Upon A Time in The West'. The monocohrome darkness and portraits of faces. Not portraits of aristocrats but ordinary people like his (Rembrandt's) mother, his friends, someone he met in the street. Rembrandt invented the physiological portrait. In that film you can read the person's history on his face".

Does anyone know of any specific paintings, by Rembrandt or anyone else, that inspired the look of OUATITW. I swear I saw something on this site once that compared shots from Leone films to specific paintings. Does anyone remember where that might be?
