The most interesting part of the interview is when Leone details the reasons
why he went from directing westerns to directing the revolutionary film DYS.

I see he had been dreaming of his Leningrad project for quite some time...

BTW, am I just being cynical, or is it maybe possible that SL never said those things to the interviewer? That might explain why SL says surprising things never reported elsewhere.....

Seems real to me. He mentions the massacre that is referenced in DYS. It must've been fresh in his mind.

This is interesting, I never realised Leone was that fearful.

you might be right. I have never read this stuff anywhere else. Frayling spent time with Leone, and also interviewed almost every one of his major collaborators, and I can't recall reading almost any of the stuff here in any of Frayling's works.

btw, the page seems to me to be incredibly blurry; I couldn't read it very well, and I had to strain very much and even then there were things I couldn't make out. did it appear okay to you guys?

It was blurry for me too.

I remember watching an interview with Sergio Donati on the DYS DVD, and he was saying after the dollars films Leone kind of lost his sense of fun and that was present in DYS and it's relatively dark tone. He also said at the time he was making DYS he was telling lots of stories about the "good old days" when making the dollars films and how much fun he had instead of talking about his current film. I think that kind of attitude is present in this interview [if it is real].
