If you can guarantee me an Eiffel-Tower-free experience, I'll go.

Easy : there is absolutely nothing to do in the 15th arrondissement (where the Eiffel Tower is). Nobody ever goes there except for tourists. If anything, you will see the Eiffel Tower more often in any American film that has ONE scene in Paris than the usual Parisian does in a full week.

I remember that photographs were not allowed to be taken at the Leone Exhibition in 2006.  Maybe now with phone cameras everywhere that cannot be controlled so readily....

Not a single question apart from the one Drink wrote me on WhatsApp? I’m on my way to the talk right now.

Ask about that film idea A Place Only Mary Knows (I think That is the title), was it just a treatment or something more.

Sorry NL only just saw your posts re Paris
It would have interesting to find out the latest with OUATIA Directors Cut
Re the previous restoration work why was the film pulled?
Did the Leone estate actually realise that the results of the restoration work would be so poor?
Why were the other scenes missing?
Is further restoration work happening?
Is their legal problems with further restoration & the extra scenes?
Who actually owns the movie?  Is it A Michan, WBs or the Leone Estate?

So, I went there, it was great, FAFDM looked great on the big screen, the place was packed, Frayiling was very friendly. There wasn’t any question time but during the signing of the books (he signed my something to do with death and once upon a time in Italy copies as well as two copies of the catalog - he also wrote lines from the Leone movies) I got to talk a bit with him, I introduced myself as a member of this board and told him we have questions for him. He gave me his email address and told me we’d keep in touch.

So here we are. We can list a few questions and ask him.

Also, the talk was filmed so the cinematheque will probably upload it at some point. It was a 90min talk, Frayling spoke in English and there was live translation. A first part of the talk consisted in Frayling explaining the different ways he sees Leone as an author (if someone is interested, I took some notes) and the second part was a Powerpoint presentation mainly based on Leone's biography, influences and many little stories. I don't think there was anything particularly new but it was interesting to see Frayling go personal (personal taste, ideas and many "when I talked to Leone/Vincenzoni/DeNiro/that festival jury member/..., he said..." stories). Frayling also showed us a few clips:
- the new BTS/alternative shots for FoD
- the crane shot above the station in OUATITW (Frayling's personal favorite use of image and music in history)
- GBU's triello

A big highlight of the talk was when Frayling's chair unsuspectingly collapsed under him, which resulted in a funny slapstick scene. He was laughing very hard because of that and saved the day by concluding "A true Leone moment", with which he won the room.

Thanks for your report noodles. Seems it was a great day.  Did he mention his new OUATITW book. It was supposed to be out now but I found out it won't be out until next March/ April.

Yeah, the OUATIA questions are the ones that are on the top of my list too.
He didn't say anything about his upcoming book. I wanted to ask about it. I will in the mail.

So so far we have:

- What about the OUATIA restauration?
- What about the OUTITW book?
- How complete was the  A Place Only Mary Knows project?

I still need to see the exhibit (I'm doing everything I can to see it this week but I may have to wait for another week), I may have new questions afterwards.

I believe that "A Place Only Mary Knows" is discussed in STDWD - I wouldn't ask about something that is already mentioned in the book.

I'd also ask about DYS audio discrepancies. The final music, etc.

And ask when his book is REALLY coming out :)
