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.
Like this. I'll add it.

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.
I agree. I'll use this and add a sentence summarizing his career.

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.
I'm not at all familiar with Kurosawa but here is something: http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=872.0

Actually, this is what Wallach says (113): I'll try to work something up to cover this and add it to the Wallach entry.

That's it. Even Wallach threatened to sue and Leone said "get in line".

There's the recent one specifically about the GBU novelization. Marco Leone started one that mentioned 3 books, FAFDM, GBU, and A Coffin Full of Dollars. Evidently there are more: does anyone know what they are?

The one I read was "Blood for a Dirty Dollar" and it had Tuco in it so it was post GBU.

I think the thread was Leone Novelizations or something similar.

lol, never mind a quick google search of Joe Millard brought up this list but I don.t agree with the last two.

The Man With No Name novels...

So, the Fistful of Dollars novelization was by somebody other than Joe Millard, or is Joe Millard just a house name that various people used so we aren't really talking about a single person anyway?
