One thing I noticed in FAFDM, DYS and OUATIA, which happen to be the Leone movies with the multiple flashbacks and the characters with the most mysterious pasts, is that they all have newspapers and books being read by characters at one point.

Mortimer reading the Bible and then the newspaper article about Manco, Juan reading the newspaper article about Mallory and Mallory reading Patriotism by Bakunin, and of course Noodles reading Martin Eden on the crapper and the newspaper in the opium den.
What's even more interesting is that the books and newspapers are about the characters with the mysterious past and flashbacks or being read by them.

Could there be some insight into the mysteries of the movies concerning the characters' past(Future/past/present for Noodles :P) in these books and articles? I think it would be most interesting to see the book and newspaper Noodles was reading. But a sharp big screen and a DVD player with the zoom feature could probably make it easy ;)
