Well, as is the habit of this board, discussion doesn't always stay on topic. It wanders into other areas, such as the above digression regarding authorship of OUATITW. Touchy, touchy . . . .

AGAIN, I NEVER QUESTIONED THE AUTHORSHIP OF ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST. ARGENTO IS NOT THE SOLE CREDITED SCREENWRITER.

IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR A WRITER, DIRECTOR, MUSICIAN, ETC...TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR A WORK HE MAY NOT HAVE HAD MUCH INVOLVEMENT WITH IN THE FIRST PLACE TO GIVE HIM SOME CREDIT FOR LATER OPPORTUNITIES.

The THIRD time I hope is the charm.

Still, no one has bothered to acknowledge anything about Leone's inability to direct an action sequence. Instead relying on other directors to do it for him. We're talking more than one scene. LENGTHY SCENES OF ACTION. I guess that means LEONE ISN'T THE SOLE "AUTHOR" OF HIS WORK EITHER. NO ONE SEEMS TO RECOGNIZE THIS BUT WHEN THE SUPPOSED GENIUS THAT HE IS DIRECTS A SCENE THEN SAID FILM IS NOW SEEN IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT.

You seem to think that this thread is all about you. Well, you have my pity.

It's quite funny when it was brought to people's attention that Leone's action scenes were directed by other directors because he was incapable of doing so himself, it is ignored.

I wouldn't say that he was incapable, its mentioned in the commentaries on DYS that Leone was busy directing the principals and leaving the action to the second units. I could be the same in the other films.

Not according to Margheriti. He has nothing but praise for the man but it is said that he was uncomfortable shooting big action scenes and he left them to his ADs. Alberto de Martino also did the final action scene in DUCK YOU SUCKER. So that's three for this one movie...

Giancarlo Santi, Margheriti and de Martino.

To Jenkins--what gave you the impression that I thought the thread was about me? I simply brought something to your attention that seems to be constantly overlooked. No need to pity me. You wish to incite some sort of battle of words with me but I have little time for you now. If you like, PM me your address and I will send you some toys. I have some old WW2 toy soldiers in the attic that could possibly bring some enjoyment to you and possibly help you to focus and read posts more carefully next time.

Well I don't know Joe.

I know he did direct the bombed out town shootout in GBU because I have seen pics of him on that set.

That shootout is pretty pedestrian stuff.

That makes me wonder why he wanted to do a movie on the Leningrad siege. Probably planned to shoot it in a bathroom.

Just thought I'd add a comment here. The confusion stems from Leone directing the dinner sequence which Hossein talks about on the interview on the German DVD where a photo of Leone directing is shown.

And yes, if you watch the movie, Cris Huerta looks absolutely nothing like Leone.

Well, Cemetery Without Crosses is a classic of its sub-genre, merited or not, the opinions obviously vary. I like it, though I don't watch it often and wouldn't rate it very high. It's full of W cliches, yeah, but the non-standard W characters, the surreal touch and the fact that it's stripped of the usual SW excesses make up for a nice little change. The dinner scene is great; the unsure close-up build up to a nifty surprise.


7/10

Personally I love it. It is pure visual cinema with minimal reliance on dialogue. Alex Cox says in his review that he wishes even some of this very sparse dialogue would be removed which would almost render it literally speechless. In any case it should really be watched in its original French, rather than English or Italian, for the times when speaking does sporadically occur.

Including this one, I have only seen two films directed by Hossein. Albeit well-respected as an actor, he seems to be to have been grossly underrated as a director.

After Leone's five, this vies with Corbucci's "Great Silence" for the no.6 spot in my favorite Spaghetti Westerns

Not really. That's probably better than 90+% of western shootouts that came before.

I have my doubts about Leone's supposed inability to shoot action. Anyone else have more evidence?
