I watched Once Upon a Time in the West more than ten times when shown in the theatres in the late sixties and early seventies. For forty years I avoided the non-Leone spaghetti westerns, out of pietism.

I ended up watching about 150 spags in the next 15 months, using the SWDB as a roadmap, everything from Greek tragedy to slapstick comedy. I found a number of perfectly good anti-oppressive political films, and an even larger number of maybe not so perfect, even far from perfect, but perfectly amoral, bleak, noirish westerns, different from Leone’s films.
