Sergio Leone

“What would a Spaghetti site be without discussing The Spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone?”

Pretty much I guess.

How much percent on this site is about Leone and how much on the other stuff? 5 to 95?

[quote=“Silence, post:1, topic:1784”]“What would a Spaghetti site be without discussing The Spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone?”[/quote]A beautiful quote from a genious. Who was it that said it? ;D

Was it a genius, a dupe, or a partner? :wink:

It was Korano, I think. :slight_smile:

Should I repeat my question? :smiley:

Hey! :wink: :smiley:

This thread seems to have died out…

Happy Birthday, Sergio Leone (1929-1989)

As part of the Sergio Leone retrospective at the Cinémathèque française in Paris from October 2018 to January 2019, a new catalogue and a new documentary were produced:
La Révolution Sergio Leone, edited by Gian Luca Farinelli and Christopher Frayling
Sergio Leone, une Amérique de légende, directed by Jean-François Giré
The catalogue, published by Les Éditions de la Table Ronde, will be out shortly, October 4; Giré’s documentary will air on Arte in December.


Really looking forward to that booklet, I wonder if it will be interesting for fans as wel

Commenting on the Western Movies forum, user L isn’t enthusiastic about it.


Lecture on Leone’s Westerns, given by Christopher Frayling at the Cinémathèque française on October 14; in English and French.


Does Ray el Magnifico translate in English to Ray(as in Raymond) the Magnificent? That’s what I’m getting from Google Spanish-to-English translation unless it somehow means “ray” as in “ray of light”.

Also, was El magnifico extranjero, (Feature Film, Released between 1967-01-01 and 1967-12-31 (Sorted by Popularity Ascending) - IMDb))Maledetto Gringo (1966) - IMDb which was, according to IMDB, compiled from two episodes of “Rawhide” (1959), “The Backshooter” and “Incident of the Running Man”,… part 1 and part 2 episodes combined"back-to-back", separate unrelated episodes on 1 DVD, or separate unrelated episodes somehow edited into one movie?


Yes :cowboy_hat_face:

Yes, both Fistful of Dollars and Eastwood’s character were tentatively Ray the Magnificent? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

That’s right … terrible name isn’t ? :smiley:

You can see both ‘Ray, the Magnificent’ and the alternate title, ‘The Magnificent Stranger’ on the clapperboard in the outtakes.


Ray, the Magnificent rolls off the tongue like Duck, You Sucker! :wink:

Eastwood’s character is referred to as Joe in Fistful of Dollars, so I’d have been okay with The Magnificent Joe or Joe, You Sucker! :crazy_face:
