They thought they were making Sergio Leone an offer he couldn’t refuse by asking him to direct The Godfather. Was he a wiseguy for sticking to his guns, and developing his own gangster drama Once Upon A Time In America instead? Can Robert DeNiro stop smoking opium long enough to figure out who stole the million dollars that he and lifelong business partner James Woods made during Prohibition? And how many times did Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart check their pocket watches during the epic run time? Donate at the Silver Level and Find Out!
Make a Silver Level Donation and cowboy up with Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie this summer as they ride the Sergio Leone Express! This week the train pulls into the Italian director’s acclaimed 1969 epic Once Upon a Time in the West, in which Charles Bronson’s harmonica-playing Man With No Name squares off with an uncharacteristically evil Henry Fonda, and lovable bandito Jason Robards. Will any of them help a widow (Claudia Cardinale) in hot water with a greedy railroad baron (Gabriele Ferzetti) out to take her land? It only takes a fistful of dollars to find out!
