31  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re:Most memorable scene in this film? on: July 14, 2003, 08:00:09 AM
Yep! O.K Cedet you win!! I  just checked on IMDB. Fart Face was indeed played by Richard Foronjy.
My apologies. You know, after seventeen years of watching this movie, I'm still learning.

Sorry but I don't think that fart Face is police chief Aieilo...

The young gangs nickname for Chief Aiello was indeed Fart Face. Go check out your DVD and go to the scene where the lads are trying to roll the drunk. Dominic is tying his shoe laces as Police Chief Aiello comes out of the station he runs to Noodles and shouts "It's Fart Face" and later when they use Max's wagon as cover Noodles says "The wagon will hide us from Fart Face"

I have always used for region 2 DVD. It has a huge selection and often has really good sales. Three DVD's for 20 with free postage e.t.c. It's video and DVD hunt is excellent as are delivery times.

" You'll put up and you'll shut up, you'll hear nothing and you'll see nothing. Just like you did for Bugsy. We made our deal, now take a walk"
Noodles lays down the new rules for Police Chief Aiello ( Fart Face) on their first step to power. Now they are in business!!

Watching this wonderful epic again on DVD has I guess refreshed us all. So I thought it would be a good time to ask you guys what you think is your favourite and most memorable scene in the film?
Yet again I laughed until I nearly cried at the Chief Aiello baby-switching scene!
And the scene in the station, when Noodles leaves for exile and returns thirty years later always gets me.
But my favourite has to be that quite beautiful scene in which young Patsy slowly eats that cream cake (a charlotte mousse with whipped cream) rather than get laid.
I know that there really are so many. But what scene really does it for you?
36  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re:Death Of James Hayden? on: June 21, 2003, 02:03:45 PM
Thanks a lot for that Jon.
I did know that Hayden had a small role with Pacino in Crusing but did not realise that they were such good friends. Would be interesting to see a movie on him one day. Thanks Again!
37  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Favorite Robert De Niro Film? on: June 20, 2003, 04:36:10 PM
O.K. he's always been my fave actor, and we all love him in Once Upon A Time In America, but what would be your choice as favorite film from this amazing actor??

For me it has, and probably always will be for his role as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver.
38  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re:OUATIA DVD Sells! on: June 19, 2003, 02:18:40 PM
I think the cover is really good. The old VHS copy i have from 1986 is terrible. It had De niro's face top centre and the burned bodies of the gang below - Crap!! I would have loved that wonderful original bridge poster that hangs proud in my dining room, but hey, at least we get the bridge!!
I can see where they are coming from with De Niro's face though. The film is essentially about Noodles and his sad guilt ridden torment and I think this image reflects it.

I have always thought that the exterior to Fat Moe's was an actual bar in Montreal but the interior was a set in Rome.
Check out Aaronson's Informations about OUATIA further down on this very page.
40  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:The Greatest single moment in a Leone film on: June 19, 2003, 01:39:35 PM
There really are so many magical Leone scenes, but the one that does it for me is in OUATIA when a young Patsy slowly eats that cream cake on the stairs. He makes sure that he gets a real special one as it's for Peggy so that he can get laid. As he is waiting for her he can't resist trying a tiny bit of cream, then a bit more then more from the edges, he then opens it up and looks at it for a while and then finally crams it all in his mouth. It's a really sad and moving scene as it was probably the first time Patsy had enjoyed such a luxury and the fact that he had saved up for so long for it. Again Morricone's music in the background makes this scene truly beautiful.
41  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / OUTIW Severely Edited!! on: June 12, 2003, 05:35:36 PM
I read a bizarre thing today, in an old 1995 Virgin film guide. It says that the original release of OUTIW in America was severely edited because Paramount wanted to cram an extra show in every night in order to sell more popcorn!!
Tell me this is not true?
Anybody Know??
42  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Re:The Mission on: June 12, 2003, 04:45:10 PM
Sure it had it's problems, but worst film of all time! A bit extreme don't you think?
I last saw The Mission at the cinema on it's release back in 1986 so I'm a bit rusty. I remember it as being a beautifully photographed, thought provoking, historic epic. True, some character development was poor, and to a point, emotional involvement. (Except maybe for that scene where De Niro starts to cry as he finishes his penance and all the kids laugh at him.)
I still think to this day that the major problem with The Mission was De Niro. He was totally miscast for the role of Mendoza. His performance was lazy, dull, bland and uninteresting. Maybe it was the set script, or maybe his first experience with an English director. I don't know. Even producer David Puttnam later admitted that he thought De Niro was wrong for the role.
And i'll leave you with something else he said while making the movie:

"The Mission is a Clint Eastwood version of Beckett"

My choice in any movie poll would be OUATIA. I am not surprised it's winning easily. I really do think that it was Leone's only true masterpiece! OUATITW comes close though!

Jon, and all you guys who have already seen it.
It has been reported that there is a rather messy intermission, around 15 mins in, on disc two. Is this true? If so what did you think of it??
It really is great  to hear that it is uncut.
