I heard somewhere that the script of the Godfather was proposed to Leone before Coppola.

Leone didn't accept to to this film in order to make a most personal one, OUTA.

I heard that one too.  Anyway I think The Godfather is a very good movie, made by Leone or not.  I would consider it a better movie than Once Upon a Time in America (sorry guys).  Is there going to be a fourth one, because I heard there were plans to do so...?

Indeed, the music was a goddamn riot, but I was rather disappointed in the film.  It has its funny moments, but the kind of slapsticky humor just didn't work...  Those moments were really bad, I mean something to be ashamed of...  But the rest was alright...  Especially the beginning at the barbershop. :-X

Just out of curiousity...  Which Eastwood western vehicle do you like best?  I mean apart from the Leone ones.  Personally I really liked High Plains Drifter the most (for obvious reasons).  It's the most spaghettilike western he's made in America, it has a cool atmosphere and the music is great! 8)

I have got an interview at home with Leone, but it's in Dutch.  If you have someone to translate, or if you understand Dutch ;D I could e-mail to you.

In Microsoft Cinemania '95 they give a quote from Leone which is something like this (I have to check out the precise words):
The cowboy picture has got lost in psychology.  In the West there were violent, uncomplicated people, and it's this power and simpliness I want to represent in my films...
something like this.

Could be, I'm not guaranteeing anything, but the typical spaghetti western is not known as being 'dramatic' but more as violent and extravagant...  And there's mostly some weird absurd sense of humor in them...

If you have more clips, you can always ask about them.  Not that I know so much about non-Leone westerns, but you never know...  Maybe me or someone else can recognize an actor...

About this clip I can only say it's not from a Leone-film, it's also not from My Name is Nobody and the Hills Run Red. :-\  Sorry!

I'm sorry, I don't know the film it is coming from, but I can tell you it's not from Once Upon a Time in the West.  It looks like it's cut badly too, so I think you'll have to go looking for cheaper spaghetti westerns (which is not a offensive name, I always smile when I hear the word :D)

Kind of like what happened with Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction I presume?  Or worse?

You're probably right, Gangs of New York would have been something for Leone...

SciFi, interesting...  Imagine him making the new Star Wars-flicks...  mmmm.  

It's hard to say, because there are few films today that are so intense and serious like Once Upon a Time in America was...  And if he would have lived, would he be making the same kind of serious pictures?  Or something more light-footed, like the Dollars-trilogy? ???

I think Leone's films still look innovative.  If I look at one now, it still is 'something different'.  After the spaghetti western period the western became American again and it became a sort of mix, though a soft one.  If the western was to gain popularity again, it would be by a new cultural approach I think.  Like the Italians in the 60s, it would be the Germans? Thai? Spanish?  Maybe the Italians again would be the safest... ;D

The art is to actualize the theme 'western'...  which is of course maybe not the best theme to actualize.  But I believe it is possible...  After all, it hasn't been that long since films like Tombstone, Unforgiven and Dances captured the audience's attention.  I thought even The Quick and the Dead was a very fun film to watch at.  

It wouldn't be easy, but if people think hard enough, it must be possible to make something original.  It struck me when I saw My Name is Nobody yesterday that it was pretty original when I was expecting something more clichéd.

By the way, did anyone see 'Tears of the Black Tiger', a Thai campy spaghettiwestern-like melodrama?  It wasn't much of a good film, but you couldn't say it wasn't  pretty original...  Maybe we are to expect a boom of Thai westerns!
