"So you're not a businessman after all.."


« : June 26, 2018, 06:45:40 AM »

It was announced yesterday that Cinémathèque Française together with Cineteca di Bologna (which has been involved with all the major restoration projects of Sergio Leone films) have organized a big exhibition in Paris called "C'era una volta Sergio Leone". The exhibition will start on October 10th 2018 and will last until January 27th 2019.
Sofar I could only find the Italian announcement:

During that exhibition, Sir Christopher Frayling will present his new book  "Sergio Leone's revolution"

Incidentally, tonight there will be a special screening in Bologna for the 50th anniversary of OUTITW on the main square Piazza Maggiore. Frayling will also be present.

Does anyone know anything else about this new book?

I've never heard about any of this (book or exhibition) but I'll sure go to the Cinematheque in october.

There isn't anything on their website yet: http://www.cinematheque.fr/
(except for a Sergio Corbucci retrospective in july)

Not heard of this book.  His Once Upon a Time in the West book is out in October so seems strange that he would have two out.

The article mentions that  the book is by Frayiling and Gian Luca Farinelli, director of the Cineteca di Bologna and the man who is behind all the Leone movies restoration process.. So it could well be that Farinelli did the legwork and writing and that Frayling is just some sort of a "sponsor"...
Still in the article, according to Farinelli, Leone once told him that he learned more in a few weeks working with Vittorio De Sica then in all the subsequent years he worked as an assistant director with great american directors.
Still the article mentions how knowledgeable Leone was about firearms and that he knew even the slightest differences in the various Colt models; he hired a craftsman called Aldo Uberti from Brescia specialized in reproducing old firearms who provided the guns that Leone requested.

I'd say to attend if you can.  I attended similar exhibition in Los Angeles at the Autry Museum maybe about 2005, was very good, seems like ages ago.  Even the original poncho, outfit, revolvers were there (Clint Eastwood has those).

It also says "a cura di" (edited by) and has Farinelli first billed (although that could just be for alphabetical reasons).

So. The exhibition starts in a few days now, and we have more details about it and everything that happens around it.

Pictures of the program for more details (rank them by "name" to read the full thing in the right order):

A few highlights:

La Révolution Sergio Leone
The catalog of the exhibition. "A collective book under the direction of Gian Luca Farinelli and Christopher Frayling". It includes critical analysis, interviews with collaborators and filmmakers as well as documents from the Cineteca di Bologna.

Sergio leone, une Amérique de légende
A new 52min documentary by Jean-François Giré that will be released on Arte and Arte.tv.

Once Upon A Time In Italy
One hour conference by Frayling, after a screening of FAFDM (the film was chosen by Frayling).

Sergio Leone: à la recherche du temps rêvé
Another conference, by Jean-François Rauger, followed by a screening of DYS (also selected by Rauger).

Ennio Morricone restrospective
Maybe even a masterclass.

The Los Angeles Leone exhibition (about 2006) was great; I recommend all those with a chance to attend should not miss this.  That one even had Eastwood's outfit and pistols; I believe Clint was there on opening night.  Even musician/spaghetti film whistler Alessandro Alessandroni was there (he died in 2017).

Thanks for those links

here is a longer version of one of the vids you posted https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5VtS8KBDN8 (music starts around 00:50)

and here is another good one of Alessandroni https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSx-eBQJ9r8

The first minute is Morricone speaking, then the music begins. Can any of our Italian friends here translate what Morricone is saying?

Also, does anyone know if Alessandroni wrote any of the Leone-film music himself? Or did he just play guitar and whistle to the melodies/notes composed by Morricone?

Don't forget the T-shirt!

I'll ask for a "OUAT SERGIO LEONE - Paris, 2018" tattoo on my whole back.

So, I'll probably get to ask Frayling a few questions (at least one during the talk and one during the signing, which is actually the whole point of getting stuff signed) so if you guys have questions you want Frayling to answer, shoot them here, I'll do what I can.
