I'm listening to an Interview Eastwood gave to a French radio station about 20 years ago, where he talks about it. He says they weren't allowed to do it on Rawhide.

The list of things they couldn't do on Rawhide that Leone could do (because he was "an unkown Italian") is shortly after the 1 hour 38 minutes mark in the podcast:

Eastwood mentions this frequently. Is it possible that it was a TV rule rather than a movie rule? Then again, as noted above, Arthur Penn clearly says it was a rule under the "studio system." So at some point, the rule did apply to movies as well;  perhaps television was more strict in enforcing it, or perhaps the rule was followed in television long after movies had stopped following it.


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