Really?  In Italy only?  Wow...  

Not to imagine how many Macaroni Westerns were made... and Paella Westerns...  I even heard of Camembert Westerns before, really.   :D

That's funny... oldtimer... ;)  Yeah, it must be something with the old west specifically, because a lot of women like Dances with Wolves... strange.  And indeed, figuring out the female -seemingly extraterrestrial- race is impossible...  If they don't like Leone, they are not to be saved...  They will be cursed into damnation... ;D  

Other Films / How many spaghettis?

I was wondering if anybody has an idea how much spaghettiwesterns there are made in general?

Well, I'm 20 years old and I know about ... zero girls that like Leone...  Too bad, I don't understand it...  Maybe they think it's too macho, or too slow.  It's strange that they like films like Pulp Fiction then...  I think it's the general idea people have about westerns.  A lot of people still have the old-fashioned American westerns in mind and I still have the feeling that westerns are a 'guy thing'.  Too bad.

Duck, You Sucker / Re:Thoughts on this film

I think this is Leone's weakest film.  Maybe logical, because at first Leone didn't want to do this one (he wanted to give the project to Peckinpah)...

Though it is fun at some times, it never matches the level of any of his other films.  Nice score, by the way.

General Discussion / Which film would you have liked to be made by Leone?

Which existing film would u rather seen made by him?

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:the good, the bad and the ugly in OUTIW

Did they have an argument or something.  I know that Clint wanted to make his own movies in America, but I didn't know they had quarrels...  What happened?

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I heard that Leone's original idea for the opening sequence was that he would let the main stars of GBU play the three men waiting for the train.  Imagine...
With which he wanted to tell to make place for a new west, and the the old Wild West is done, these are the last days of the gunfighter...

Does anybody know more about it?  Is it true?  Why didn't they do it that way?  (maybe though it's better this way)

I also heard that he was going to make an epic film about the siege of Leningrad.  Robert de Niro was going to play in it.

I also heard that Leone was raising money in America and in Russia (!) and that he collected a budget of nearly 100 million dollars (or was it 2,5 million?  I don't remember exactly) without any existing scenario...  No single word was written about it...  Leone just based the concept on one idea of a very huge, complex camera movement (while all kinds of things happen).  I don't recall the exact meaning of the shot, but I can assure you, we're talking about a serious mudda of a camera movement here...  Crazy guy.  But brilliant.

Thx for the info!  By the way, I found the Fistful of Dollars trailer on the net:,,13449|13702,00.html

I also have the DVD of FAFDM, which has a great trailer!
I also have the GBU trailer, but I was hoping to find some other Spaghetti Western trailer... (or information about trailers in general, if anybody would happen to have).

Maybe if someone has a DVD with spaghetti western trailers I could upload it?  Let me know!  Thx.

I agree, there were Leonesque parts, but I think it was a somewhat disappointing film.  Where Leone succeeds in bringing real characters, emotional storytelling and human relationships, Scorsese obviously fails.  At the end the film is more like a sum-up of historical events.  Too bad, it could have been a masterpiece but I think it's not.  Just.

Hellow, I am an animation film student and I want to make a fictive spaghetti western trailer for my ending project, using all the style-characteristics and kitschy stuff of the genre (because I love it).  Would anybody happen to know where I could find (on the net) spaghetti western trailers, from Leone or any other?  I would be very thankful.

Once Upon A Time In The West / DVD
« on: January 22, 2003, 02:22:36 PM »
Why the hell is there no OUTIW DVD?  The dollar-trilogy is out, OUTIA is out, but the best isn't...  By the way, the extras  on the dollar-trilogy were lame as being non existant (except for the deleted scenes from GBU)! >:(

Anyway, I think it's good it takes a long time, because maybe they will make it worth buying (u know what I mean)!  And I hope it's not some chopped up version because a short time ago I saw three of these dusters... kidding... (sometimes I crack myself up :D) I saw a retrospective of OUTIW and the whole bar scene was missing!  (On the other hand there were also shots that were in it that were not in VHS version, so... that was alright)  Damn man, the DVD has to contain the frikkin perfect version...

Also I heard a while ago there is a new Italian documentary on Sergio Leone.  Does anyone know about this?  :-\
