Abstract:

"In this enhanced revision of Once Upon a Time: The Films of Sergio Leone, Robert C. Cumbow examines the work of this Italian filmmaker who made his mark re-envisioning the American Wester. This volume includes a greatly expanded introduction and contains newly revised essays in which Cumbow analyzes the transition from "peplum" films to Westerns in the Italian popular tradition. It also examines each of Leone's major films as director, as well as the swan song Western My Name Is Nobody, which Leone co-wrote and guided as producer. Cumbow also studies Leone's compositional style and the influence of Catholicism and the Italian grand opera tradition on his work. He provides a critical evaluation of Leone's style in reshaping the Western genre (and later, the crime film), as well as an assessment of the influences on Leone's work and his continuing impact on contemporary filmmakers."--Jacket.
