Once Upon a Time in the West: 50 Years On
Join Christopher Frayling, Sergio Leone’s biographer, for this special lecture.
Total runtime 80min
Christopher Frayling is Sergio Leone’s biographer and the author of a major new book entitled Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece. In this illustrated lecture, Frayling will share rare on-set photographs, art director Carlo Simi’s designs, and discoveries from the Italian archives. When it was released in 1969 critics were expecting another Dollars film from Leone, so the reception was lukewarm at best. Since then, however, the reputation of Once Upon a Time in the West has grown to the point where it’s now considered one of the greatest westerns ever made. Christopher Frayling will be signing copies of his new book after the event.
