When did he develop a fascination with this genre? I know his sword and sandals he had no choice since he was assistant on those and westerns was his first personal genre which is covered a lot his love for it but what about the gangster movies, did he also watch a lot of the American gangster movies the same way he did westerns?

I guess he would go and see just about all American movies as a kid.
