Recalling America's greatest historical shames, majority have involved the
singling out of groups of people for abuse. Based on distinguishing features like
skin color, religion, nationality, language. It is undoubtedly factual in recent time
that people....particularly foreign nationals ...within America have suffered
unjustly for it , either through freelance hatred of the citizens or aliens or as a
matter of official government policy. The right-wing leadership in America has

4 This director, so famous for his operatic bombast, had a cult for the fine, delicate
and miniature. Leone's cinema is often as memorable for its fine detail as it is for
its broad and sweeping gestures. Ted Kurdyla, “production liaison” for Leone's
Once Upon Time in America shoot in New York, described Leone as “a
combination director and art director,” and numerous accounts bear out that
description.5 Leone was a kind of amateur archivist of the West and so brought
the collector's ...

avenge himself on Max is to refuse to recognize him and to refuse to kill him—a
deliberate reversal of the “big gundown” toward which the first four Westerns all
aim. It's easy to take Once Upon a Time in the West somewhat simplistically as a
tribute to the values that won the West and made America great—the strength,
dreams, and pluck of the frontier entrepreneur. But with Duck, You Sucker! an
uneasiness begins to make itself felt. A Vietnam connection? A presage of
nuclear ...

Not only did he study many Civil War photographs on which he based his
cinematography, but he actually used genuine Civil War artillery in the film.10
The visual effect is one of realism in film to which American audiences were not
accustomed. After The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Leone went on to create two
of his greatest works, Cera una volta il west (Once Upon a Time in the West) in
1968, starring Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson, and Cera una volta in America
(Once Upon ...

DE NIRO HAS the same centrality, even more so, in another and even more
magical movie, Sergio Leone's last and greatest film, Once Upon a Time in
America (1984)—another riff on classic Hollywood, on the movies of the thirties
and forties that the director grew up with in Mussolini's Italy and never got over.
Leone (who died in 1989) made his first great success, of course, by reinventing
the western in the 1960s, in his Dollars trilogy with Clint Eastwood. America is
some version of ...

Richard G. Lazar, PhD, January 2009 Once upon a time, in the then-great USA,
people could quit jobs and find new ones. They might even have been fired and
still readily found new work. When they returned home from the Great Wars I and
II, veterans got jobs in industries that made room for them. They also got Post
Office and other government jobs. When people got laid off they were usually
hired back in short order when business got better. In those times it was relatively
easy to ...

According to the 2000 U.S. Census, there are only five actual members of the
mob left in the United States.* What happened? What went wrong? How did one
of America's. *For some reason, the number five has always been important
when it comes to the Mafia. There were five great mob families: the Gambinos,
the Genoveses, the Bonannos, the Colombos, and the Luccheses; and there are
five great mob movies: Godfather 1, Godfather 2, Analyze This, Once Upon a
