Now, the nerd aspect: You may not want to pay for this book unless you actually understand movies. Frayling knows enough to interview people like the Director of Photography, but most Americans don't even know what that means. One person found this helpful.

Along with his later masterpiece, "Once Upon a Time in the West", these films came to define the Spaghetti Western. Another important thing is, this book contains lot of beautiful pictures of movie posters of Leone's westerns This is a fantastic book for Sergio Leone's fans. This book is full of interesting information about Sergio Leone, his style of making movies and how he made those movies. Interviews from the writers, production designer and director of photography who were involved in making Leone's western movies were very interesting. I also liked the interviews given by Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef. There are some pictures taken at the shooting spots also in the book. I highly recommend to read this book!. Jul 19, 2015 Jeff rated it it was amazing. A really deep look into the life of Sergio Leone with some fantastic interviews. The interviews with those who worked with Sergio, and Sergio himself, are highlights.

Along with his later masterpiece, Once Upon a Time in the West, these films came to define the "Spaghetti Western," a genre that has influenced such contemporary filmmakers as Martin Scorsese, John Woo, and Quentin Tarantino. Written by the preeminent Leone scholar, this is the first illustrated book to focus on his Westerns, illuminating his visual style, offbeat sense of humor, and sophisticated, elliptical way of telling stories.

British film historian Christopher Frayling comes through with another book about the great, polarizing Italian director Sergio Leone.

This book is medium on actual reading material but heavy on pictures- big, colorful, beautiful reproductions of film posters from the last 40 years. It only covers Leone's five Spaghetti Westerns (or Italian Westerns) that he directed, extensively. It briefly mentions the one he produced. Any true fan of Leone's Man with No Name trilogy will love this book.

If you are a big Sergio Leone fan, please read Frayling's masterful biography of him, "Something to Do with Death," available on Amazon.

Now, the nerd aspect: You may not want to pay for this book unless you actually understand movies. Frayling knows enough to interview people like the Director of Photography, but most Americans don't even know what that means. If you can name Leone's famous Production Designer, this is definitely the book for you.

Also, it is a joy to hear what went into "Once Upon a Time in the West," the finest Italian Western ever made and Leone's only true masterpiece.

THIS IS A TREAT. Serious Coffee-Table sized book for Fans of Sergio and his Euro-Westerns. Filled with chapters on the actors; locations and behind the scenes drama. Thrill to many foreign or rare posters and trivia.

A great book for anyone who loves Sergio Leone, the true master of the spaghetti western and his great characters. I liked learning about my favorite The Man With No Name and Clint Eastwood the actor who portrayed him. Plus the other great characters he created like Tuco, Eli Wallach, and Colonel Morterimer, Lee Van Cleef.

It was very interesting to see how he put his heart and soul into his movies, and how a man from Italy gave us the most realistic view of America's most remarkable time, the old west.

This book is very interesting if you love Spaghetti Westerns or Sergio Leone!It includes photos,interviews with Clint Eastwood,Eli Wallach, and much more!I was disapointed it left out Sergio's spoof Nobody's the Greatest,but then again he was uncredited for that film.Very impressive book!
This book was the companion to a Sergio Leone museum exhibit in 2005. It is a great addition to the collection of any Leone fan.

This coffee-table sized book has color reproductions of original posters and soundtrack covers from Leone's movies; there's also copies of other interesting stuff like newspaper ads from movie theaters and some of production designer Carlo Simi's drawings of some of the sets and costumes. But mostly, it's the color reproductions of the posters.

The text features some discussion on each of Leone's westerns, as well as full-length interviews with many of Leone's collaboratore, like Lee van Cleef, Clint eastwood, Luchiano Vincenozi, Sergio Donati, Carlo Simi and many more. Frayling has incorporated some of the discussion from these interviews into his biography of Leone (called "Sergio Leone: Something to Do With Death"), but here, the interviews are presented in full Q&A format.

There's also a big spread where he lists every film reference present in Once Upon a Time in the West. Otherwise, I'm not sure if the text of the book contains all that much information that isn't available in Something to Do With Death, but the main attraction of this book is, as one would expect from a museum-exhibit companion, in the color reproductions of the original posters - in English, Italian, French, Spanish, Belgian, and other languages.

If you're just starting out as a Leone fan and want to read information on Leone's life and his movies, I'd recommend that you first purchase the biography, Something to Do With Death. But once you are a big Leone fan, this book "Once Upon a Time in Italy: The Westerns of Sergio Leone" is a great addition to your Leone collection :-)
