I know they made up in latter years...

but when Clint talks about SL its like as if he is reading it off a pre-written script in a v. dry manner.  Not the warm and affectionate way that Eli talks about him with a smile in his eye, and Sergio tried to kill him off a number of times.  Cheesy

Maybe its a hint of envy because everytime anyone speaks about movies to him, 9 times out of 10 they probably bring up Leone.

Or is it just Clint being old Clint.

They really didn't do the same kind of cinema. I think he doesn't get why many people admire Leone so much. That doesn't mean he doesn't like the man or his work: he may just think they're both somewhere between "okay" and "good".

This is of course just my opinion, only based on the feeling I get when Clint talks about Sergio.

I recall an interview with Eastwood (it might have been in Frayling's Once Upon a Time in Italy book) where he says something to the effect that Leone's films don't deserve comparison with the great American Westerns. Noodles is probably spot on, at least with his first sentence.
