As a favor, I'm posting this news from the Autry National Center. They are promoting a very special event this summer which many of our members will find interesting.

Nope but I have ordered the book that they have produced all about Leone and the Westerns.  I look forward to getting it, should be sometime in July I think.   I would love to go and see it for myself.

I have just received the book  Once Upon A Time In Italy.   It is brilliant. Packed with pictures of Clint and posters for the Spaghetti Westerns.  Considering it is a hard back book and heavy the $43.00 I paid for it including postage was money well spent.  It's a cool book to have and dip into it every so often.

    SERGIO LEONE EXHIBIT -- LOS ANGELES, CA

Hey Gang,

I just got back from the Autry Museum "Sergio Leone Exhibition: Once Upon A Time In Italy". Very impressive. A little smaller then I expected, but still fun. A great collection of Leone posters, as well as posters from American films that were influences of his. (John Ford,Anthony Mann, Howard Hawks etc) and of course the Holy Grail of "Spaghetti Western" lore: Eastwoods Poncho from the "Dollars" trilogy. Awesome! There were also costumes from Henry Fonda and Claudia Cardinale, scripts, production stills and costume sketches. Overall a great day.

BTW.. the rest of the Museum with costumes from Clayton Moore, James Arness, movie posters and props is great. There is also some beautiful artwork about the true American West. If you can make it to the show...GO!!!
