Few directors are characterized by both extraordinary film craft and the ironic reputation for lowbrow films. Despite his many achievements as a child of the Italian Cinecitta studios, however, Sergio Leone has been judged severely by writers who find his films lacking in ideas and moralists who find his films unduly cynical. Nevertheless, Leone's greatest cinematic achievement, Once Upon a Time in the West, served to refute these criticisms while exposing the director's unique romanticism and artistic ambition. As Leone's fourth successful American western film, Once Upon a Time in the West earned him acclaim for liberating the western genre, restoring it to a place of antique American simplicity. The principal goal of this book is to sharpen an appreciation for Sergio Leone and his most famous American western. The first two chapters deal with the relationship between Once Upon a Time in the West and the western films that preceded it, particularly those of John Ford. Subsequent chapters concentrate on the central characters of Once Upon a Time in the West, with special attention to Jill, Leone's first female protagonist and a surprisingly successful character, central to the plot and accorded a kind of existential strength usually reserved for men in Westerns. The sixth, seventh and eighth chapters address Leone's visual style, which represents a unique fusion of Hollywood classicism and modernism, and reveals the influences of Italian Surrealism and the French New Wave. The final chapters explore the rhythm, romanticism, and musical character of Once Upon a Time in the West, espousing the theory that Leone's approach to film is, above all, musical.

Sergio Leone's renown as a filmmaker rests upon a fistful of films, most notably the three Westerns he made with Clint Eastwood in the mid-1960s: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). While the success of these movies ensured Leone's reputation would endure, the few films he made following The Man with No Name Trilogy—culminating in his American gangster epic, Once Upon a Time in America (1984) with Robert DeNiro—would solidify Leone's place as one of the great visionaries of his time. In this enhanced revision of Once upon a Time: The Films of Sergio Leone, Robert C. Cumbow examines the work of this Italian filmmaker who made his mark re-envisioning the American Western. This volume includes a greatly expanded introduction and contains newly revised essays in which Cumbow analyzes the transition from "peplum" films to westerns in the Italian popular tradition. The book also examines each of Leone's major films as director, as well as the swan song Italian Western My Name Is Nobody, which Leone co-wrote and guided as producer. Cumbow also studies Leone's compositional style and the influence of Catholicism and the Italian grand opera tradition on his work. He provides a critical evaluation of Leone's style in reshaping the Western genre (and later, the crime film), as well an assessment of the influences on Leone's work, and his continuing impact on subsequent generations of film makers. Additional features of this book include thumbnail comments on the professionals who most frequently made up Leone's cast and crew, as well as an entire chapter devoted to composer Ennio Morricone. The book also includes an exhaustive bibliography, discography, and filmography, completely updated for this new edition. For fans and scholars seeking original and illuminating discussion of his work, The Films of Sergio Leone provides a critical appreciation of this master stylist.

Moral values are under attack. Although the United States of America was established with a firm position on Christian values and morality—on the fundamental belief that God’s laws were supreme—this rich tapestry of American history and values has been tattered and torn by the introduction of principles inconsistent with the Founding Fathers’ beliefs. How can we then overcome this challenge and bring back integrity and honesty into contemporary life? In Once upon a Time: A Guide to Moral Decision-Making, author Dick Hanson reclaims this lost set of values and provides insight and encouragement for dealing with the problems that beset humankind. Drawing from a variety of sources and offering a sense of the historical background of moral decision-making, Hanson uses a Christian, biblical perspective to articulate a decision-making process that can help show people the way forward with courage and resolve. Replete with examples of people who have made moral decisions, each chapter provides inspirational guidelines and scriptural references that will today assist each person in making moral decisions. The themes of honesty, integrity, spirituality, and morality run as a thread through the tapestry of history, culminating in the formation of the United States of America and its enduring principles. Despite the moral relativism that permeates our day, God has a set of moral rules and a code of conduct that will bring us back to a high standard of moral behavior—something we so need in our day and time.

Once Upon a Time (Bomb) is a charming memoir of a young boy growing up in El Salvador. It tells the story of Alfonso Duque the Thirteenth, a youngster from a poverty-stricken family and a budding poet. Surrounded by hovering women-his mother, aunts, grandmothers, and sisters-little Alfonso still manages to enjoy boyish pranks and endure scraped elbows, knees, and ego while also discovering the pleasures of reading. The womenfolk laughingly describe him on his 'throne' atop the trees or back in the outhouse, where he often escapes to read. This work of innocence is set against a darker backdrop of the growing violence in the Salvadoran countryside and the news coming from the fronts of the Second World War. Argueta incorporates many of the best-loved local folktales into the narrative, the Siguanaba, Chinchintora the Snake, Theodora the Coyote, some of them personalized or hilariously adapted by the women to fit their own circumstances. In the book, the author works through memory, re-encounters a nostalgic past, re-creates paradise, and re-acquaints himself with his poetic roots after years of exile from poetry, his homeland, and the luxury of dreaming.

The Best Way to Fix Our Economy describes the basic problem of the USA economy in the early-21st century. It is how to restore, re-surge and re-build America. How? The solution is building great new innovative product industries that produce excellent products at good prices that sell in the USA and markets around the globe. They generate sustainable small businesses. That then produces steady jobs that provide income that keeps taxes down and enables sizable profit, incent investment, ROI, continuous R&D and superior products built at competitive prices and helps ensure sustainable industry growth. The book affords an accurate historical analysis of how America has driven its economy from being the primary product-producer in the world to a service-based economy. The authors describe the simple--not easy--roadmap back to the future to being a product-driven world force by using the Lazars' proven behavioral economic model that they call The Central Productive Processa [ to create a renewed productive society. The Lazars name 17 innovative product industries that will turn the economy around and restore the practice of true Capitalism in America instead of the personal interest (greed) and financial services system now in place masking as Capitalism. The Central Productive Processa [ is punctuated with realistic, logical and common sense notions crisply formulated over thirty-five years of "on-the-ground" experience. It is not a theoretical exercise for the reader. It works. Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight David Eisenhower are cited as two excellent examples of "AND THINKING" leaders who understood that a strong nation combines defense and human needs along with economic growth and human well-being. Their vision of a compassionate and strong American economy has been in decline in America for the last 30 years. While the clarion calls of Roosevelt and Eisenhower have been muffled in the USA, China heeded the call, exceeded all expectations and has grown into an economic power with product-driven national policies. Enhanced by thirty years of peace and neutrality, they have also improved the quality of life and expectations of its citizens. In this book the Lazars light the way to breathing new life into a new economy that is product-based, profitable, productive and progressive. This work is a renewed clarion call for warring ideological leaders and elected officials to work together to overcome their own weak performance and unwillingness to sacrifice their personal interests for the best interests of all Americans. The nation cries out for them to cease battling each other to the death. The country needs a "new response" to the lagging and weak economy. This book provides the right response for a new economy inherent in the American character. It is time for each and all of us to help our nation rediscover its greatness and ability to resolve internal conflicts with victorious actions. "Hope and optimism can only be founded on right thought and right action that people can see and feel."--Richard G. Lazar, PhD

From wicked queens, beautiful princesses, elves, monsters, and goblins to giants, glass slippers, poisoned apples, magic keys, and mirrors, the characters and images of fairy tales have cast a spell over readers and audiences, both adults and children, for centuries. These fantastic stories have travelled across cultural borders, and been passed on from generation to generation, ever-changing, renewed with each re-telling. Few forms of literature have greater power to enchant us and rekindle our imagination than a fairy tale. But what is a fairy tale? Where do they come from and what do they mean? What do they try and communicate to us about morality, sexuality, and society? The range of fairy tales stretches across great distances and time; their history is entangled with folklore and myth, and their inspiration draws on ideas about nature and the supernatural, imagination and fantasy, psychoanalysis, and feminism. Marina Warner has loved fairy tales over a long writing life, and she explores here a multitude of tales through the ages, their different manifestations on the page, the stage, and the screen. From the phenomenal rise of Victorian and Edwardian literature to contemporary children's stories, Warner unfolds a glittering array of examples, from classics such as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and The Sleeping Beauty, the Grimm Brothers' Hansel and Gretel, and Hans Andersen's The Little Mermaid, to modern-day realizations including Walt Disney's Snow White and gothic interpretations such as Pan's Labyrinth. In ten succinct chapters, Marina Warner digs into a rich hoard of fairy tales in their brilliant and fantastical variations, in order to define a genre and evaluate a literary form that keeps shifting through time and history. Her book makes a persuasive case for fairy tale as a crucial repository of human understanding and culture.

The true story of the American West on film, through its shooting stars and the directors who shot them... Howard Hughes explores the Western, running from John Ford’s 'Stagecoach' to the revisionary 'Tombstone'. Writing with panache and fresh insight, he explores 27 key films, and draws on production notes, cast and crew biographies, and the films’ box-office success, to reveal their place in western history. He shows how through reinvention and resurrection, this genre continually postpones the big adios and avoids ending up in Boot Hill...permanently. Major films covered include the best from genre giants John Ford, Howard Hawks and John Wayne, plus classics 'High Noon', 'Shane', 'The Magnificent Seven' and 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'. 'Stagecoach to Tombstone' makes many more stops along the way, examining well-known blockbusters and lowly B-movie oaters alike. It examines comedy westerns, adventures ‘south of the border’, singing cowboys and the varied depiction of Native Americans on screen. Hughes also engagingly charts the genre’s timely renovation by Sam Peckinpah ('Ride the High Country' and 'The Wild Bunch' ), Sergio Leone ('Once Upon a Time in the West') and Clint Eastwood ('The Outlaw Josey Wales' and 'Unforgiven'). Presented too are the best of western trivia, a filmography of essential films - and ten aficionados and critics, including Alex Cox, Christopher Frayling, Philip French and Ed Buscombe, give their verdict on the best in the west.
