More great pics here (even if some of them are not OUATIA tributes by anticipation):

Thanks for the links. Yeah they just released this archive so i guess everyone is bombarding the website now.


In addition to the photo of the Manhattan Bridge, there is another photo that reminds me of OUATIA: it is the first photo that is posted at that Daily Mail link that  noodles_Leone posted, of the Jewish shops on Delancey Street in the Lower East Side. I have seen many similar photos  of the Lower East Side during the early 1900's.
Looking at photos like those, you can see how amazingly Carlo Simi and Sergio Leone recreated the Lower East Side in OUATIA. I have never seen a movie with better Lower East Side scenes than OUATIA. (OUATIA's Lower East Side scenes are far better than those in the movies from that era, which were all shot on Hollywood studio backlots).

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
