Default Once Upon A Time In America Restored Version

Critics in the States panned the 1984 film and for good reason. It wasn't the version which was seen in Europe.

Sergio Leone's last film

A former Prohibition-era Jewish gangster returns to the Lower East Side of Manhattan over thirty years later, where he once again must confront the ghosts and regrets of his old life.

4 hours, 11 minutes

Thanks for the update , How- apropos ' Once upon a time in America' I did read that in 2012 or thereabouts, there was a restoration project aimed supposedly at the US market to enhance all that was cut from the original version.

While I saw the European cut, I believe that there are twenty odd scenes that cannot be included in the new edition because there is some dispute as to who actually owns the material.

An amusing little tale is told about Robert De Niro , who originally turned down the plum part of Noodles,apparently, when later re- approached by Sergio Leone enthusiastically accepted the role. At the time, Leone was visiting De Niro at his apartment and asked to use the toilet.

Sometime later , De Nero entered the john to discover that Leone had pissed all over the toilet seat. Enraged ,De Nero in his paranoia ranted that Leone had done this to demark his masculine dominance. It took quite some persuasion from a third party to convince the 'Raging Bull' that poor Sergio had a shaky hand a poor eyesight! De Nero eventually calmed down and accepted the part.
Cheers,
Merv

PS Thanks for the Link.

Thanks Merv

Thank God that DeNiro accepted because Richard Dreyfuss was Leone's choice before DeNiro accepted. Can't imagine the film being quite as good.
Make that good at all...can't stand Dreyfuss.
