Thanks Juan Miranda - sounds like a good evening.
...playfully speculating on how THE LEAPORD would have turned out if Leone had made it and not Visconti.
Out of curiosity, what did he think it would have been like?
He told me he wasn’t in any way involved it the work for the new print Leone’s children are producing but that he had seen the extra footage. He sounded enthusiastic summarising it until he described the Cleopatra sequence as “awful”. He hopes that down the line in the future he will be asked to provide a DVD commentary but then of course he’d “have to talk for even longer.”
Oooh lucky man to have already seen it!
Did he say why he didn't like the Cleopatra sequence. Was it the content or the way it was filmed or what
Yes, a Frayling BD/DVD commentary would be very welcome indeed! They added one to the BD of GBU.
