Sergio Leone is a singular figure among Italian filmmakers of the postwar years; his films grow in reputation year after year. Groundbreaking westerns such as his Dollars trilogy and the authoritative Once upon a Time in the Westhave made Leone one of the most popular and influential directors in world cinema. Christopher Frayling's remarkable biography of Leone-the first ever-affectionately explores his body of work and casts light on little-known details of his life. A wealth of research, story, and insight, Sergio Leone: Something to Do with Deathstands as the definitive study of this master filmmaker, crafted by one of our most acclaimed critics and historians.
