RE: the Fascism thing, Frayling discusses this. he says Leone's father was very briefly a member of the Fascist party in the early days, but quickly split, and became very anti-Fascist. Leone himself was a left-winger, a disillusioned communist or whatever, admitting later he couldn't be much of a communist with all his wealth. Leone's father helped Jews hide during the war. Leone himself, as a child, wanted to join the Resistance, but his parents would not let him fight, as he was very young and an only child.

Everything I wrote is from what I recall Frayling saying, whether in STDWD and/or his Spaghetti Westerns book and/or his DVD commentaries; I have seen and read them all many, many times  Smiley


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