Personal Quote:

Trivia:

When he made Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), his stylistic influence switched from the more frenetic pace of Hollywood westerns (which he put on hyper-drive for the "Dollars" trilogy with Clint Eastwood) to the slower, tenser style of Japanese samurai films, mainly those of Akira Kurosawa.

Trademark:

Characters in his films frequently play a musical device, with the music appearing also in the composer's score (Indio's watch chimes in For a Few Dollars More (1965), Harmonica's harmonica in Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)). See more »
