That's Italy.

Same here, if not worse.

Let's guess ... he was the original choice for the man with no name, but, too bad, he was signed for another film, but of course it was him who recommended instead Eastwood for the role.

They met in 1966, at a prize award (The Golden Ankle:Huh). They were tight friends, spent holidays together. Gemma's favourite movies: OUTA and Il brutto, il buono, il cattivo (sic). Final anecdote: L. called him one day"Let's go to Paris". They went by L's Mercedes. Gemma was L.'s guest at the George V ("I heard people say he was a Scrooge, but that's not what I experienced"). "I learned later that  he thought I was a good luck charm". In fact Leone was in Paris discussing the financing for OUTA and the first days he was quite dejected ("They want to cheat me, they don't want to give me enough money"). Then one day he appeared very happy: "I've made it: they're gonna give me 30 million $ for the movie". And Gemma: "Well, then give me 10%". L."You're crazy, aren't you?".
