Man, i gotta have this book, but $75 is kinda steep.  It may go even higher.  Anyway, good to know that this book about the best western of all time is coming out...

You can reserve it now, and the price may go down before it is released, which youíll get with Amazonís pre-order price guarantee. If The price does not go down, you can always cancel. They donít charge your card until a few days before the release date.

the price had dropped as low as $46.39.
That's where I locked it in at. Of course, with tax the full price is actually 50 and change, but that's a lot better than 75 plus tax. This is my reward for going to bed early these last 35 years . . .

The book has had a change of title.  SHOOTING A MASTERPIECE. Date is pushed back again as well. I liked the Shot by Shot title but hey.

Yeh no kidding - "Shot by Shot" had a clever double-entendre that is all but lost in "Shooting a Masterpiece". I wonder what forced that change?

I also wonder how this book will compare to Fawell's "The Art of Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West"? Judging by Frayling's previous works, it will certainly be longer!

Some of us were initially wondering if the book was actually a shot-by-shot analysis of the film, and didn't realize that the "shot" referred to photographs. Perhaps that is why they changed the title.

I've never read Fawell's book. Is it any good? I usually can't stand these "critical study" books on film; a bunch of nerdy stuff that takes all the joy out of watching a film. (Frayling is the one writer whose critical studies I can enjoy and who is able to do it without being nerdy and always being interesting and a great read.)

this new book on OUATITW (if it ever gets released!) is a compilation of photographs by the late stills photographer Angelo Novi. I am sure there will be some text, of course, but who knows how much ...

That's why it was a clever title and should have been kept.

I don't own it but browsed through a library copy once. I remember it being quite a slim volume with some interesting stuff about Leone's visual style in the latter part.

Actually I guess it's a "triple entendre" then: every gun shot; scene by scene analysis; photographic stills.

They really should have kept that title.

I'm not interested in photo books.

I'm probably the only one here who was disappointed by Hanley's GBU book. Too much photos, and not enough interesting text to justify the price.

I like photo books when the photos are not stills from the actual film unless the still itself is being provided to demonstrate a particular comment in the text regarding composition etc. Mike's book on Peckinpah for example has some great behind-the-scenes, deleted scenes and candid shots that are great to see. It actually took me a while to source all the behind-the-scenes shots of Leone and Valerii on "Nobody" since all I kept turning up was still after still of the actual film.

There's no mention at all of the book on the website of the Angelo Novi estate either:
