Landis, John. Stuntman on OUATITW, later the American director of Animal House, Blues Brothers, etc.
You could add, which stunt(s) he performs. And maybe to Kurosawa something more, like that he was influential to Leone in other ways too (style etc.).

Thanks to sb4, this is now solved: Frees, Paul    The voice actor for Gian Maria Volonte in FOD, the drunken captain in GBU and Morton in OUATITW. GMV did his own voice for FAFDM, right?

Well that's a quote from Frayling who said that contractually he was required to do that, doesn't mean that he didn't attempt it and it was decided to go again with Frees

you may want to add that  Lee Van Cleef was one of the outlaws that Peck was after in The Bravados listing

Also if you have Dogs (three in GBU) then you better also add Cats (there is one in each dollar film).

Connolly (check) Jenifer Academy Award winning actress who played the young Deborah in OUTIA

Add Three Godfathers as additional inspiration for GBU, not only the desert scenes but also for some elements of Tuco's costume.
Implemented all your suggestions. Thanks.

I've added an entry for Paul Frees. I don't know precisely what stunts Landis did, but as I get the info, I'll add that too. The Kurosawa suggestion is a good one, too, but something of a tall order. I could use some help with specific examples that show styles, motifs, etc. the two directors used in common.

Half of the entries for "C" were inadvertently left off, and they have now been restored.

Shouldn't we avoid unnecessary spoilers? If this is supposed to be an introduction for the new fans who maybe haven't seen all the films, IMO it's not necessary in most cases to tell who dies etc. Or what do you say?

Joe Millard did a series of books based on Leone besides GBU, I've read one "Blood For A Dirty Dollar" years ago.

Leone, Sergio   Was born, lived and died in Rome (3.1.1929 - 30.4.1989). Son of silent film director Roberto Roberti (Vincenzo Leone) and actress Bice Waleran.

Something like that? I think the very basic information is enough, everything else is said elsewhere.

Was also considered to be Juan Miranda in DYS until he had an arguement with Leone which cost him their friendship.
All the details can be found in Wallach's interview in the Frayling book "Once upon a time in Italy".


wouldn't the above be necessary for Wallach? Your call.

Based on the characters in Leone films? Point me to the info, Joe, and I'll expand Millard's entry.

Peckinpah, Sam  American film director. SL offered him the opportunity to direct Gił la testa but he turn it down. Despite some rumors, they were friends rather than enemies. Though, SL claimed that Peckinpah's Wild Bunch wouldn't have been possible without the Dollars-trilogy.

All the details can be found in Wallach's interview in the Frayling book "Once upon a time in Italy".
Actually, this is what Wallach says (113):
Quote
"Yes, he begged me to do the part, and I said, "I have another commitment." "No," he said, "you've got to do it." Finally, I said I would do it. Then he goes to California to raise the money, and the studio tells him they have Rod Steiger committed for a number of weeks. So he used Rod. That's where our disagreement came in.
I'll try to work something up to cover this and add it to the Wallach entry.
