I've heard that, in 1975, Leone considered French-Canadian singer-actor Robert Charlebois (A Genius) for an important part in OUATIA. For which part??? Maybe Frankie's brother Joe - Leone shot most of the sequences (concerning Joe) in Canada...

This is very interesting stuff guys. Thanks for posting.

Did they say if Aiello was approached for any parts other than the Police Chief? I remember Frayling's interview of Aiello in STDWD implied that he was offered a choice of roles and decided on his namesake character.

There's also a review of the Adrian Martin book here:
http://www.latrobe.edu.au/screeningthepast/reviews/rev998/once.htm

mind you, the review's not that helpful. I think it's a good book. No factual info that isn't available elsewhere, esp in Frayling's book, but some good discussion, interpretation of the film.

I like that last capture of the gang as kids.  Nice.  A few months ago I was searching Amazon, I noticed that the end of last year the Robert Cumbow book, The Films Of Sergio Leone, was reprinted.  I don't have it, I've read posts where it's been recommended.  It's still kind of pricey brand new, paperback $40.  Before the reprint it was running even more than that on secondary markets.  Kind of surprised after the release of the Anthology that Something To Do With Death hasn't had a reprint.

In the meantime I've ordered a copy of Oreste De Fornari's book from a bookseller in Italy - I hope it's in English. 

Let us know if it is or not.

Just sent a Email to Robert on his website, so he can answer this question.
Also, I ask of his memories on working with Leone on Genius.
He is a down to earth guy and should answer.
I asked that he posts here.
