Do you think this was supposed to be a prequel to GBU?

Were any of leone's movies really sequels or prequels... c'mon the man made 3 movies with the same lead actor and character and he never made a true sequel or prequel, it's a completely new story, he wrote the script and apparently the only thing in common with GBU are that it's set in the civil war and there is some gold people are after.

Not directly through character or situation, but the American Dream trilogy kind of had a story line that was continued in each movie: opening the floodgates for capitalism in OUATITW, foreigners wanting to live the American dream in DYS and an immigrant eventually making it in OUATIA.

I think all of Sergio's movies had relevance to eachother in that respect.

no contest there... it definitly seems like it has the distinct leone theme's to it... all i meant was no not really, i wasn't sure how much you knew about it and maybe you thought it might have an actual connection through character or situation.

Based on what I've read, if Leone had been able to get some good actors in the lead roles, this would've been one hell of a movie.  I'd rather have seen it than "Leningrad", personally.

I absolutely agree! Wink As Kermit already pointed out Leone wanted Rourke and Gere for the lead roles, he even named the characters Mike and Richard. If I remember correctly he already had talked to Rourke about the project.

According to Italian sources Andrea Leone, Sergio's son, was still planning to have the movie made.

According to the english Wikipedia entry for Sergio Leone, A place only Mary knows is the title of a treatment written by Leone, Morsella and Tonicelli about two soldiers in the Civil war. Anyone knows more about it ? I used the search function but wasn't very successful.

The movie was never made.

It was just an idea Sergio had. He had a few others such as a remake of sorts of Winchester '73 called Colt 45, and an epic movie about the Siege of Leningrad.

franc tireur, a heads up on Wikipedia, a lot of entry's have errors, that said,  I've heard about "A Place Only Mary Knows" from other sources I think Frayling, and supposedly Leone was thinking of Mickey Rourke and Richard Gere for the leads.

Yeah that's basically all we know about it. I think the woman (Mary) only knows where a large amount of gold is and she two-times either the Gere or Rourke character. There wasn't much info and I odn't even know if a treatment was even written.

I didn't even know that there was that much written, certainly more than I originally thought.

From Wikipedia: "Although the written draft never got into pre-production, Leone's son Andrea had it published in 2004."

I would love to see a copy of this.
