About Sergio Leone
He is largely considered to be one of the directors who influenced cinema’s history. Italian director Sergio Leone made a name for himself in the mid-1960s through his fresh approach to shooting films. He was the originator of the film sub-genre known as Spaghetti Western. He rose to fame through the “Dollars Trilogy” films and the “Once Upon a Time” film franchise.
As his parents were already in the film industry (his father, Vincenzo Leone was an actor, director and screenwriter while his mother, Bice Valerian was an actress), it was not surprising when he ventured into the industry.
In 1972, his film, “Duck, You Sucker!” from the “Once Upon a Time” franchise won a David di Donatello Award.
He has been credited with boosting the career of actor Clint Eastwood whom he featured in his “Dollars Trilogy”.
