Trivia:

Famously feuded with director Peter Bogdanovich over the directing reigns of Duck, You Sucker (1971) - Leone claimed that Bogdanovich was fearful of such a large production and backed out at the last minute. Bogdonavich stands by the story that Leone hired him as a patsy, as he wanted to direct the film all along. See more »
