An interesting question, Gladiator was very good, Leone might have done it better, the recent Gangs of New York also may have been done better, perhaps Leone might have tackled a SiFi flick, they are similar in structure to westerns. I'll ponder this some more and post again...

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? Huh

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.

Been thinking more on this and maybe a detective film might have been a good one for him to try. The dectetives like Marlow, and Archer were loners similar to the man with no name playing the cops and the bad guys against the middle.

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...?

There's a project indee, based on an other Puzzo's story.

But the fourth part would tell the "adventures" of young Sony Corleone (the caracter played by James Caan).

I saw Andy Garcia's last performances (Ocean's eleven for example) and I think he is really mature for the godfather role.

I can't agree with you, Il Buono, Godfather is an excellent movie (specially the first one) but it has nothing to do with OUTA.

I would have wanted to see his project about the siege of Leningrad, would have been much better than "Enenmy At The Gates", although I liked that film as well.

i think Leone would have made a good comedy director.Look at the Dollars films,there are loads of laugh-out-loud moments.And the first half of Fistful Of Dynamite.

As for excisting films,it is very difficult.I suppose Saving Private Ryan.It was good and Ilike Spielberg but Leone would have made it better.

I don't forget that Sergio is Italian and so in a particuliar feeling with Italian-American Directors: Scorcese, Cimino,
Ferrara
The Godfather ? indeed !  but also ....Funerals, Year of the Dragoon, Deer Hunter, King of New york.

Obviously I strongly regret that he never could realize the Leningrad project .

He was a great battle Director before Western

Among all the films you mentioned, the idea to have him direct 'The deer hunter' seems brilliant to me.
Of course I love Cimino's movie, but somehow I feel that Sergio could have rendered DeNiro's and Walken's characters even better.

Thanks guybrush,  when Il Buono will open a New Topic "wich are the actors able to enter the Leone world" we could answer "Chris Walken".
I suddenly realize that Chris played also in "Funerals" and " King of New York"  Wink
