Thanks, guys. Wait for the separate thread. ;) I'll collect more info and start it later...



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Erm... How does Frank Wolff warrant an entry longer than pretty much every other actor listed combined? ???

moviesceleton has PM'd me with this suggestion:

Quote
You could add to Bronson's entry in the Encyclopedia this bit of info:

Was offered the role of Joe in AFOD but refused saying the script was "just about the worst I'd ever seen". Later he explained: "What I didn't understand was that the script didn't make any difference. It was the way Leone was going to direct it that would make the difference."

I am happy to add the gist of this to the Bronson entry.

moviesceleton has another suggestion (is he taking something?):

Quote
Another contribution to the Encyclopedia. Feel free to correct the factual and grammar errors.

Neorealism An influential and acclaimed style of film or a movement that aimed at the greatest possible realism in film by using nonprofessional actors, shooting on location and the overall unpolished look and style. Became popular after WWII among film critics and the "art" movie society but never reached huge success among average moviegoers. SL worked as an assistant director on one neorealist film, Vittorio De Sica's Bicycle Thieves. SL made clear that even though he understood the importance of this movement and learned some important lessons from De Sica, he didn't feel any appeal to it because to him cinema was all about imagination.

Hmmmm. This seems a bit windy for an entry about "the road not taken." I like the idea of contrasting neorealism with Leoneism, though. I'll give this some thought and work up my own version of it. Anyone else want to lend a hand?

I hear what you're saying. Actually when I started writing it I was under the impression that SL worked on more than just one neorealist movie but when I checked again Bicycle Thieves was the only one I could find.

Addition to Coburn, James:

Was offered the role of Joe in AFOD, and agreed to play the part for $25,000, which was too much for the producers.
Frayling, STDWD p.134. Am I plagiarizing here? ;D

Here is what I've done with the neorealism entry:
t
Quote
Neorealismo/Italian neorealism. A film movement that emerged at the end of WWII that featured proletarian subjects and eschewed studio productions for the authenticity of real locations (for practical reasons, also--they were cheaper to film). Early practitioners included Rossellini, Visconti, and De Sica; SL worked as an unpaid fifth assistant on one of the most famous of these (and even has a cameo in it), De Sica's Bicycle Thieves. Although paying lip service to the movement, SL developed a personal filmmaking style that could be described as "hyper-realism," or "ultra-realism," the very opposite of neorealismo.

I think I'll add info to Bronson, Coburn and The Magnificent Seven regarding SL's interest in having that film's stars in his first Western.
