One of the great myth makers of a different kind of west was Sergio Leone, who, as the most artistically and commercially important of the "Spaghetti Western" directors, interpreted the west in a uniquely European way. Now things have come full circle with an exhibit at the Museum of the American West containing history and memorabilia from Leone's western films, which include A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Leone also made what many (including myself) consider to be the ultimate western: Once Upon a Time in the West.
With costumes from his movies, special multimedia features and a treasure trove of exhibit items, this kind of thing makes me wish I lived in LA.
