There were a couple of great bts photos that didn't make the final book. One was on the page and one on the Publishers website. One was of cast and crew between takes at Cattle Corner station and the other one was of Fonda standing on the train reading a newspaper.

I agree with most of Mike's points. Would look better on gloss paper, more WEST stills and less US western posters. I take the point about contact sheets but I think in this case it works with the day by day shooting theme. More of the images on them could have been shown larger as well. Don't usually like double page spreads but the ones here are chosen well and nothing vital is lost in the centre as often the case.
I think the GBU book set the bar so high that is difficult to match it. Overall it is a great book. Years ago we would dream of having a book on just one of the films.

That colour one is in the Japanese souvenir brochure.

Cheers  :)

I forget now. Is the CVC release the only one that has the 175 min version?

My copy arrived today a few days early. As Jordan said it looks great. I can't see anything yet about  the Italian release running time but have only skimmed through it quickly. It has costume test stills , costume and set designs and contact sheets.

Ah okay. It was out at end of March in UK.

You got your copy early how exactly?

Was wondering that myself.

Noticed this set on  Anyone know if the Fistful of Doilars is the Ripley's one?

In Italy it is already available (in Italian of course) and it's called "Tutto Leone" and I just got it from Amazon Italy today. Had a quick look and as far as I can see, it is simply beautiful. Tons of pictures, and everything well in order, starting from Il Colosso di Rodi to the very last project he was working on (Leningrad of course). The book also shows a detailed list of all the projects he was thinking about or has refused (did you know he was asked to direct "The life and times of judge Roy Bean"?). Lots of interviews, anecdotes and other interesting material. A total of 319 pages written by Oreste De Fornari,  the man who recognized Leone's genius long before all the other film critics finally realized that Leone was one of the greatest directors ever. This book is a must for any Leone fan in my humble opinion.

Good to hear. Does the Italian one have the same cover as the DVD screen grab images one on Amazon UK?  i'm hoping that is a mock up and it will have a better one when it comes out.

There seems to have been a shift in focus of this book which could explain the delays. It is now said to include interviews with personnel in front of and behind the camera,  rare documents, designs and photos whereas before it only mentioned Angelo Novi's photos.
