“…the eyes are the most important element to me.  Everything can be read in them…”

“Up to a certain time, westerns were more like children’s games, with people dying by falling forward – instead of being propelled backward. The lead bullet would enter like this and stay there without leaving a mark. I feel that A Fistful of Dollars made a certain breakthrough in terms of the presentation of violence and ushered in the kind of realism that can now be used.” –Sergio Leone
