I have an interview with Sam talking briefly about Sergio. They knew each other and were both the BIG NAMES when it came to western movies in the mid / late 60s and early 70s.


Which interview was that? Not sure if I've seen it.

But they were both 'lions' and two directors, at least of their calibre, should not work together. Bodganovich's GIU LA TESTA would would ended up as a sure misfire. I'm glad Sergio did it himself in the end since I love the film.


I remember reading somewhere that Leone put Peckinpah's name on the grave because he was upset that Peckinpah did not direct Giu la testa. Clearly this was not the case as Leone did it out of reverence to Peckinpah as a good natured joke.

There is a Leone quote about the Peckinpah grave in a German book in which he says:

"If we bury someone here, we extend his life"

If only that had been the case we could have had a few more Peckinpah movies after The Osterman Weekend.

I was just reading that Ernesto Gastaldi, the screenwriter, actually put the name of Sam Peckinpah in as a holding name because he didn't know any Navajo names. The instructions were to replace the name with something authentic when they were out in New Mexico, but then they decided to leave it in instead.
