Once Upon a Time in the West


Recommended Posts

Good news! Especially for all of us who love Westerns!

 

Thanks to Martin Scorcese and the Italian Film Community, a restored version of Once Upon in the West is coming:

 

From the Associated Press

 

Italian director Sergio Leone's 1968 western classic "Once Upon a Time in the West," like so many films stashed away in storerooms for decades, has not aged well. The common signs: scratches, fading colors and a generalized reddish hue.

 

But by next fall, the film ? starring Henry Fonda and Claudia Cardinale ? will be restored to its desert blazing glory and ready to be shown at the second Rome Film Festival.

 

It will be a fitting venue to unveil the rejuvenated western, the first chosen for restoration under a three-year initiative launched this year by the film festival organizers and director Martin Scorsese, an ardent film conservationist, to preserve Italian films. The scope of the initiative, as well as the other films in line for the restoration, were still being worked out.
