Once Upon A Time In America / Remaking (Sorry Reimagining) OUATIA
« on: October 07, 2004, 07:27:19 AM »
Ok guys and girls-how about a bit of fun.  Lets all pretend that were casting directors. New cast required for the reimagining of OUATIA-God forbid!

Noodles:Russell Crowe
Deborah:Catherine Zeta Jones or Jennifer Connelly (Ha)!
Max:Steve Buschemi (looks a bit like Woods)
Cockeye:Jack Black (could also play Moe)
Patsy:Ben Affleck
Jimmy O'Donnell:Colin Farrell
Police chief Aiello:James Galdofini

Once Upon A Time In America / FRANK GIO AS BEEFY
« on: October 04, 2004, 09:48:28 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Sorry just getting used to this great site. Was hoping to start speaking to fellow OUATIA lovers asap.  Please dont think because im a Newbie/Llama that I dont have opions, theories, Info to offer. So far only spoken to Grandpa-Chum-thanks Gramps for your reply. Was wondering Grandpa what your comments  were on the Mario Brega/Frank Gio issue?  I think the Big Hood is played by Gio-listed in the credits as Beefy-he is the same actor in Analyze That (Lou The Wrench)-Im almost certain that the Big Hood is not Mario Brega.
Ps I saw OUATIA in September 1984 the first night it opened in the UK-it was a night I will never forget.  The previous month Leone was at the  Edinburgh Film Festival UK Premier of the film-Clint Eastwood was at the Premier also (I think he was in town to promote another film) Anyhoo afterwards he was asked what he thought of the film-he stated "It was too long"-I kid you not!

Once Upon A Time In America / Going To Bed Early
« on: October 02, 2004, 04:21:52 PM »
When Fat Moe asks Noodles "what have you been doing all these years"- his reply is "going to bed early".
Do you think Noodles has been in prison all these years? He has already spent most of his young life in prison-when he starts his new life in Buffalo it makes sense that it would have been a continuing Life Of Crime-the only life he new-which would have made it possible that he would have ended up doing more prison time-and prison after all is the only place where you are made to go to bed early!
Any comments?

Once Upon A Time In America / NEW DIRECTORS CUT

Would anyone like to comment on the rumors that producer Arnon Milchan has been talking to the  Leone estate about restoring the cut scenes of OUATIA for a directors cut of this great film.
