I worked in the past years more than 60, but now I change that a little bit. And in my age I'm now in the evening often more exhausted than I was before. Also I'm in recent years less interested to read about films than I was when I was younger.

But still there are so many films I would like to watch or re-watch, and comics, music, even novels etc . Well, and the time with my girlfriend. There's not so much time left in a week. Certainly much less then 25 years ago.

I could live without working, I have enough interests, and maybe I should do this already now. I could afford it funnily.

How old are you ???
68 ?

(Well, I don't wanna sound like I'm ALWAYS working 60 a week - life is too short for that. But certainly
in the winter - in the summer I cut it down dramatically, for obvious reasons...  ;D)

... looks like I'll do one
myself now (as part of a team), 'guess I'll sign a contract
next week. A BIGGIE  :)
Let us know about it when you can.

Hey, the new Melville stateside releases have been announced and your commentary for Leon Morin is one of the details. Congrats! I hope you did a good job or I'll be disappointed when I pick it up.

Let me know your honest opinion  >:D  (LEON MORIN)
That was my 21st audio-commentary AND the hardest one...
I used the opportunity to study Melvielle for 10 days around the clock, most
satisfying, but also very depressing  :D.

I'm all for visuals, I certainly would have included as many rare images as possible - there are
so many superb behind the scenes - stills out there... unfortunately not as many in the book
as I had hoped for.

Yes - that's what this kind of book should be all about

I have to admit I'm very proud of the Steve-book

I've been meaning to buy that for a while. I loved your Peckinpah book and I can't even understand most of the text without a serious amount of effort.

The Cinema Retro special edition of THE WILD BUNCH . . . how can we get copies? Amazon doesn't sell it and you can't get it in book stores.

That sounds great. Barnes & Noble don't carry CR anymore? I know a lot of their stores have been closing though.

After reading what I read here I won't buy it for now. Maybe later, maybe never. Less a matter of money, but a matter of time.

I'm sure I'll get it in the end - along with Mike's Steve McQueen book. It's a matter of both time and money for me. My three young kids take up all of that up and more (not that I'm complaining of course)

Yes, in the WEST book there are about 60 behind the scenes stills,
in the GBU book more than 250! Plus more - superb -photos in general,
Peter really filled his 400+ pages very well !

There were a couple of great bts photos that didn't make the final book. One was on the Amazon.co.uk page and one on the Publishers website. One was of cast and crew between takes at Cattle Corner station and the other one was of Fonda standing on the train reading a newspaper.

And . . . ?


I just read Tarantino’s “foreword” (really a loooong stream-of-consciousness interview), and am now in middle of Frayling’s long introduction.

This is a coffee-table book, both in style and substance. I understand that people looking for a full-length book of text on the film may be unhappy. This is a book with some good text and lots of photos. That’s what coffee table books are. I am happy with it  :) :) :) :) :)

Btw, he mentions that Angelo Novi’s pics are in an Italian film archive ... I wonder if the archive is posted online, if we can view the entire thing.

I just received my copy of this and am blown away! When you first skim through it, I suggest ignoring the text and absorbing all the wonderful imagery first.  There are some amazing behind the scenes photos including costume tests and character/set designs that I found particularly interesting (though I agree with Le Bon that they left some awesome stills out of the book, the ones he described I've seen too and can be viewed here: https://ascmag.com/articles/shooting-once-upon-a-time-in-the-west  ).

A few additional bits that I found fascinating are the original story treatment registered with the Italian Film Ministry (including an alternate film title I've never heard of before, l won't ruin the surprise), production schedule, and some extra photos of deleted scenes. The last item confirms a long time suspicion that I and other Leone-philes have long held that there was a brief scene in which Frank and Cheyenne actually encounter one another on the streets of Flagstone before the latter is escorted to the Yuma train. That's a scene I truly wish never fell to the cutting room floor!

Overall, I believe it's worth every penny as it delivered on my "coffee-table book" expectations.

Yes it is. Or at least it was - I'll check, I once downloaded hundreds of thumbnails as reference
for my own archive. The book is fine for those who don't know or don't really care, but if you see
the hundreds on-the-set (and altogether thousands) available stills, many spectacular, you feel a bit sad that
just 60 made it into the book. A lost opportunity.

Can you check if there is a link? I presume it would not be in English? Thanks

 I guess that people who want tons of pictures and people who want tons of text are both unhappy. This book seems to be somewhere in the middle?

I am thrilled with it  :)
