I'm still saying: OUATITW is the more popular one in my country. ;) When we were projecting it in the school, in the end it turned out that actually about half of the people there had already seen it before. Even when at first it seemed to me like they hadn't heard about it before.
When I read an interview with a Czech dubbing actor, the role of Jill was listed among her biggest achievments. When there was an article about famous characters and their dubbers, these two were mentioned again. And that magazine where it was really isn't a magazine for specialised film lovers.

While, when I say GBU, I usually have to explain it's the same director as OUATITW. Even FFDM sometimes seems better known here to me. (The more played one in TV, for example. Maybe its length has something to do with it?)

That IS interesting, Ms. Groundhog, but you surely must realize that Czechland is a special case. In the Anglo-Saxon world, GBU is Leone's pre-eminent film. I have brothers who love GBU and the Dollars films, but were entirely ignorant of West until I brought it to their attention. And they still have no idea that DYS exists.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Yeah, that's true about Duck, You Sucker. I've talked to many people recently who claim they're "film lovers" but have never heard of Duck, You Sucker. It's absolutely hilarious when you mention this film and everyone looks at you with this wierd look on their face. "What was that." "What did you say." hahahaha Gotta love the title.

It's cool though that I've been able to show some people this film. I've made some lovers of "Duck, You Sucker" recently. It's great some of us are getting the word out on this great film.

DYS is the same case here. I don't know if it is even available on VHS, so far I know only about that screwed up playing in TV (cut version, pan-and-scanned). On CSFD, some people were complaining about it, which made me a bit proud about the few of Czech Leone lovers - they really know what they want. ;)

Recently, FFDM and FD were released in cheap DVD editions here (I have both of them ::)), which might make them more popular. And maybe it might make people more interested in Leone in general. I only wish OUATITW was available in other widescreen version than the SE here, that's the only one I know about and for some people it's too expensive... like me; Dave, thanks again.

Actually, my point might be, that I wish people in our country knew more about Leone, not only OUATITW... generally, I wish people in our country knew more about directors, most people care about actors. But that's probably just the same over there in US, people usually know Eastwood, not Leone, right?

I absolutely hate when people refer to these films as Clint Eastwood films, yes he starred, but they're not his movies.

But you have to remember that most of people don't know any movie directors; except maybe Spielberg and Hitchcock (plus here in Finland Kaurismäki and Harlin) and yet they don't know what are their movies. Ordinary moviegoers know movies by who stars in it.

And I'd say that here too OUATITW is maybe as popular and well-known as GBU. I guess it's a Europe-America -thing. Too bad we don't have members from more European countries. Or Asia! Or even Africa or S-America.

On the subject of the popularity of Leone films, GBU wins.  It's my favorite, but all together OUATiTW and OUATiA are better productions.  But it doesn't matter, all three are brilliant, wether ppl recognize it or not. GBU is as famous as it should be. OUATiTW is almost there, but not as widely regarded (especially in America).  OUATiA is way underrated.

I agree with your statement Mw/NNrules. You make good points.
