Title: Jodorowsky anecdote on Leone
Post by: Silenzio on September 16, 2007, 08:53:06 AM
Seen on Alejandro Jodorowsky's commentary for El Topo:

"After I made El Topo, Leone invited me to dinner several times.  He was curious to know how I'd done things, what equipment I'd used.  Leone always used sophisticated equpiment and spent millions.  I replied, 'Just an Arriflex camera.'  'But how did you get that crane shot?'  'I stood on top of some chairs.' (Laughs)"



I thought y'all might find this interesting.


He also said that the duel between El Topo and the Colonel early in the film was inspired by The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.

Wow, based on that quote I'd say that Jordowsky is less "cocky" than i pictured him.  Much more humble.  O0
