I was wondering if there are known anecdotes related to the (apparently) stray dog that floats in the frame a couple of times during the movie?

It must be a Leone's touch, most probably loaned from Akira Kurosawa.

No, I think it's Leone's dog. Kurosawa's would've died by the time they started shooting GBU.

Probably a Leone's touch. There is also a dog in the opening scene of My Name is Nobody, purportedly directed by Leone.

Let's say it is Leone's touch, let's say it is Leone's dog, let's even say it is the same dog, but please let's not say Leone directed it, because he didn't. Wink

The opening scene? There's evidence that he did direct that.

I'm with Tuco, Live Animals can be very hard to direct, especially this dog, who i heard is a method actor.  Cheesy

But i honestly wonder if it is Leone's dog. If not, then who's was it?

I'm pretty sure that the other dog durring the ecstacy of gold was in fact under leone's direction. To the point where it was released to an unaware Eli Wallach, whose on-screen surprise was genuine.

Are they both the same dog? it would make sense that they were, unless the two scenes were too far apart, then it would make sense that they wouldn't use the same dog, as you wouldn't want to keep the smelly bastard on set too long (you know? food, shelter, annoyance).

I'd bring the SuperSonics back in town if I could, but I'm afraid that's a little out of my jurisdiction.

You'll get bone of Arch Stanton instead.

I guess you all know the fact that Wallach didn't know that Leone was going to send him the dog on the first crane shot in Sad Hill...

Also in the beginning of OUATITW. There were also cats in FOD and FAFDM, IIRC (whoa - too many acronyms). Cheesy

Isn't that the same dog?

I know Sergio Leone was very pedant, but to think he had a set of dogs for only one movie is too much (even for him).
