The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / New 3CD GBU soundtrack release
« on: December 09, 2020, 10:04:11 AM »
Finally it looks like they have found most of the soundtrack that was still missing from the 55 min extended version:

For a Few Dollars More / Deleted landlady scene

Anything I'm missing in this blog post? Anybody have any other info/photos? Special thanks to Le Bon for sourcing the rarest ones.

Once Upon A Time In The West / The deleted Harmonica beating scene
« on: April 21, 2019, 01:47:59 PM »

I've put all the photos I have seen over the years up into one blog post, along with a detailed description of the scene. Frayling's new book had quite a few new ones so I thought it was a worthy endeavour to put this all together.

Sergio Leone News / Eastwood puts on the original poncho again!

Wearing the poncho and the hat from unforgiven, looks like the shirt from High plains drifter?

Nice interview here:

Once Upon A Time In America / Rare ouatia book on eBay?

Anyone seen/own this book? Guy wants a fortune for it but just curious how rare it is.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Split Screen trailer?
« on: March 29, 2015, 05:50:39 PM »
Came across this curious quote in one of the old threads here in reference to one of the DVD releases (the deluxe edition dvd set but not the American version as it doesn't have this trailer). I believe the person who posted this message is from Italy or France? (the user hasn't been active since 2004)

"2°  In a bonus there is a trailer , a three-screen one, where Jill talks to Frank and says "I'm coming to met a bandit who get many money" or something like that ... Its a missing scene,.I never saw it before."

Does anyone know what country included this trailer on their DVD set? I've never seen it and if you try to search for a Once Upon a time in the West trailer, it's always the same one with the "coming from paramount" does have a couple split screens but none where Jill talks. Anyone have a dvd with this trailer included?

From Conversations Avec Sergio Leone (french book)

I used google to translate this passage:

Q: WHY are the different versions in countries?

A: the French version is the longest. I supervised dubbing in English and French, I choose all the actors, from the largest to the smallest role. I fully assume the responsibility of the finished work. alas! distributors can amputate the film. in Italy, there were seven minutes cut. The united states, they removed twenty minutes to promote the sale of popcorn. The worst part is that they think the desert scene was too long. I love it. Tonino Delli Colli photographed it like one of the great surrealist painters.

The french cut is listed in the book at 164 minutes. I wonder what the extra two minutes are that are missing from the American international cut (162 min)?? Or is this just a mistake?

General Discussion / Is this interview video of Leone new?
« on: May 31, 2014, 06:12:03 PM »
Don't recall seeing this before, from 1967 - Leone talking about GBU - can anyone here translate?

Also for McQueen fans, there's a cool clip of him here on the set of the Great Escape.

Web Site Announcements / my new rare film photos blog
« on: March 19, 2012, 03:35:20 PM »
Hey all, just wanted to share my new blog with everyone, nothing on there that's Leone-related yet, but I plan on adding some Leone in the future. In the meantime, I think if you're a fan of classic film you'll enjoy what's up there now.

As far as blogs go, it's incredibly basic but I want the focus to be on the content anyway.

Look for future entries featuring unseen photos (and in some cases in-depth deleted scene analysis) for the getaway, star wars, point blank, rocky, road warrior, taxi driver and of course some Leone.  

For anyone on this forum that I've traded photos with in the past, not to worry I won't be using any of your photos, only stuff that I've purchased/collected myself.  

Let me know what you think! (if you think someone else would appreciate the blog, feel free to send them the link, I'm just getting this up and rolling and I want people to enjoy it)

Some recent entries (more last month as well)

If you're a fan of Coppola's "the conversation" then you'll enjoy the huge section (for the first time ANYWHERE) featuring a very detailed breakdown of deleted scenes cut from the film.

A Fistful of Dollars / Unpublished photos from the "mine" scene
« on: November 16, 2011, 09:13:04 PM »
Stumbled across this site which has stills from the FOD mine scene, including a glimpse of Leone with Eastwood....I contacted them about getting some copies of the photos for "personal use" but they never got back to me (the site is for licensing photos), but despite the watermarks I think they're cool to see...

Other Films / Drive - sort of a modern day western...
« on: September 20, 2011, 06:20:20 PM »

I can really recommend this film to Leone fans...believe it or not Gosling is kind of an 80's style man with no name, with trademark outfit and everything...kinda like desperado but by a way more polished filmmaker.

Hey guys, I stumbled on this this afternoon by searching for Angelo Novi photographs (he was Leone's still photographer) - there is an archive online where they have scanned a huge number of his original contact sheets and you can go through the photos online. There are literally thousands of photos there. I don't think this has been discussed here before?

When you click on the photos in the menu pages (yes 72 pages) you will notice a lot will open up to even more photos taken off of the same sheet.
for example:

Many are boring to sift through as they are shots of EVERYTHING, and they kept EVERY photo (even if it's just a shot of landscape or whatever) but there are some HUGE gems in here. First off, there are literally a HUNDRED shots of the deleted scene of Sam picking up Jill from the train. Basically every angle, shots of Leone filming it and BTS etc. You could pretty much reconstruct the whole thing. I did not see any more deleted scenes (although I started to skim after a few hundred shots - literally it will take you a full day or two to go through these) unfortunately the sheets don't cover the whole movie, just parts of it.

There are many many sheets of DYS (which I didn't look at too closely) and a huge amount for GBU, mostly covering Tuco and Wallace's train trip and the pitched bridge battle...sorry, no socorro! :(

It appears that you can also purchase copies of them if you want - expensive (cheapest is 15 euro) but I tried a couple just to see if it would work, the order form is in italian. I stumbled through it and then sent an email to them directly, will let you know if it works out.

This is where the OATITW photos start:,%20Angelo/page_7/dim_10/ord_titolo/dir_0/page_8

This is where the DYS photos start:,%20Angelo/page_40/dim_10/ord_titolo/dir_0/page_41

This is where the gbu photos start:,%20Angelo/page_56/dim_10/ord_titolo/dir_0/page_57
