Hi Ms. Chandler,

First I would like to offer you my sincerest and warmest welcome to the Sergio Leone Web
Site Forum. As you may already know, the site is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Leone and
his unique and incomparable, albeit short, film career. The members of this forum have one
thing in common: a deep passion for Mr. Leone's body of work, and of course, the actors
and actresses who worked with him.

You have led a very busy life, with both a film/TV career and it's demanding and sometimes
grueling work schedules, along with raising a family. How did you manage to balance these
two lifestyles?

I recently had the opportunity to visit your web site (www.viviennechandler.com).
Your collection of photos are both exquisite and emotive. You seem to capture the emotions
exuded from your young subjects, at that single moment in time, very well. How did this
"second" career manifest itself?

Do you have any future plans to exhibit your collections here in the states?

I would like to discuss one of the many roles you have had in some of the iconic
film classics of all time, particularly Leone's 1971 "Gui' La Testa".
Could you tell us how you learned of this particular role, playing James Coburn and
David Warbeck's love interest, and how you secured the part.

Could you provide some insight into the expectations and demands made by Mr. Leone
during the filming of the final flashback scene? I understand he had a clear and concise
image of how each scene would play out prior to filming.

This particular scene, one of my favorites, is very pivotal in the film. It is arguably the most beautiful
scene in cinematic history, with the lush Irish countryside accompanied by an equally lush and
haunting score by Ennio Morricone. Did Mr. Leone play this background score during the filming of this
sequence, which was not uncommon on Leone's sets.

The most common question bandied about in this forum deals with your character's relationship with
John Mallory and Sean Nolan. What was Leone's intent in terms of the interrelationship between the
three characters?

Finally, everyone in this forum has fervently debated the intent of Sean Nolan in the Irish Pub scene.
Did Sean nod in approval prior to being shot by John Mallory, thus taking the noble way out?

Again Ms. Chandler, thank you for being so generous with your time, and I hope your career in photography
continues to flourish. And if you ever have the opportunity, please check out our web site (www.fistful-of-leone.com).
I am sure you would appreciate our ongoing efforts in keeping the memory of Sergio Leone alive.

Sean Nolan?


The only name in the script is Nolan. Let's not jump to conclusions.   


Very good letter by the way.  Afro

And if she comes to the board, we should ask her about this name mystery.

The questionnaire is a good start. Bravo!
Although I have the feeling the answers we'll get, will promote even more questionning and debate. A good thing in fact.

We should probably send her a copy of the film as I get the feeling she doesn't own it.

Peacemaker seems to have my back on this. Anyway, yeah, let's stick with non-controversial terms; Nolan and Mallory are names we can all agree on, lets limit ourselves to them (for purposes of this interview).

Other than that, a fine draft.

Thanks for the offer peace, but I'll take care of it.
That is, if she's willing to give us her address.
If she was a smart cookie she wouldn't.

No, I just don't see why we must make things complicated by each of us putting in a few bucks (the process could take awhile) to buy the dvd after one of us already said they have a perfectly good copy to send her.

It's a piss head idea. Cheesy
