I was already looking out for this doc.
Nobody here from Italia who has recorded it on DVD?
I'd have some stuff to trade...

I actually had a few videos of interviews from YouTube of Leone that I had translated by someone. The person I had translate these did the best he could and had notes for certain parts if something was incapable of being translated or comprehended. Anyway, here is this video how he translated it.

---

Sergio Leone:
The press discovered Italian western with For A Fistful Of Dollars, and this is not… this is not the real truth. The success that For A Fistful Of Dollars had, just… just reproposed that subject.

Announcer:
Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight’s guest is Sergio Leone.

Anchorman:
Well, hehe, I guess Sergio Leone has got something to say to our ladies, right?

Sergio Leone:
Well, to go and watch my next movies, as they didn’t watch my previous ones.

Anchorman:
So, talking about movies, dear Leone, we know that we have distracted you a bit from your work. What are you currently working on?

Sergio Leone:
Well, I’m mixing my latest movie for America, which is Once Upon A Time In The West.

Sergio Leone (trying to speak Spanish [with bad results ^_^]):
But music for me is more than… than a… emotion. For me it’s like the dialogue. Because I use the dialogue almost like an aphorism. And so, all the rest must come from the music and from… and for this reason there are some great close-ups, right?, in my movies to… to show the eyes. Because the eyes are… they count much more than words. Many times.

Sergio Leone:
I persisted in making a movie that I liked very much and that I like even more today. And finally I managed to write the script. The movie in question is Once Upon A Time In America, which is the final part of a triptych that started with Once Upon A Time In The West, continued with Duck, You Sucker, and should end with Once Upon A Time In America.

Robert De Niro:
I had thought… I had met him before, and talked with him about the movie. In fact, I met him when he first was starting thinking about it. It was 9-10 years ago.

Sergio Leone:
The colour will be the most important thing; if, not only. Here is the colour. These are the right tones, in my opinion: black, this beige, this is the Lyric Theatre that we have represented exactly as it is.

Sergio Leone:
This is a film I am really keen on, because, well, there’s no psychological matter that restrains me.

Robert De Niro:
My friend, the producer of The King Of Comedy, Arnon Milchan, was adding more about the story of Sergio, the movie. And so I had been asked to meet Sergio again.


Sergio Leone:
This we can find, and we shall find, in… er, the Be… the Boeing of that time, of 1929, and I think Howard Hughes has it.

Sergio Leone:
Well, I am very obstinate, very tenacious. And I shoot the movies that I like. I mean, I have to love strongly, in depths the movie I want to do.

Robert De Niro:
We had talked about seven hours in two talks. He described the whole story to me. And… and practically shot by shot, and… the way… the way he described it may be very excellent. I had read the script, but that description was what made me wanna do it.

Sergio Leone:
Oh, this, instead, I want this elevated orchestra. Look, this really seems to have been taken from… from a book of fairy tales. And because this all is… is placed on rack and pinion, eh. And these, all the performers move in the air.

Man:
That’s not a problem, either.

Sergio Leone:
And I devoted many years of… of… of… of research to it. Also because I think that this movie is worth shooting. Because I believe it’s a wonderful movie.

Man:
Well, but, Sergio, the sewers, the drainage canals…

Sergio Leone:
Ah, yeah, you’re right.

Man:
‘Cause if it rains, we are stuck.

Sergio Leone:
Yeah, but I think we’ll better build this all near a studio.

Sergio Leone:
I’ve got the feeling that this is going to be a very particular movie, yeah. A movie which derives from a long… maturation.

Sergio Leone:
This is… the heart, right?

Man:
And in the heartland, all the buildings close to each other, just the small Jewish cemetery.

Now if anyone here can offer a better translation please go ahead. I'm sure most of us would like as most of an accurate translation as we could get of Leone's words.

Not sure. I can post the other translations I received if anyone is interested, which I'm sure you are. I'll make a new board or something. I got him to translate a few videos.
