A manufacturing mistake for a batch of millions of dollars

Years later, Leone admitted that he and his producer made the terrible mistake of not crediting Kurosawa and Kikushima, and perhaps worse, not paying Toho a lira/yen for the remake rights. . In a 1984 interview with American Film Magazine, Leone eventually confessed – or at least found out who was to blame – to the surveillance. Roundabout, he is referred to as Kurosawa by just listing his name in alphabetical order along with other famous international filmmakers. This leads to a very quick, almost optimistic, explanation of what went down. In Leone’s own words:

“I came right after the L in the director’s post, actually a few entries before my friend Mario Monicelli and right after Alexander Korda, Stanley Kubrick and Akira Kurosawa, who signed themselves up for the blockbuster ‘Yojimbo’. , inspired an American Detective Novel, while I drew inspiration from his film during the making of ‘A Fistful of Dollars.’ My producer isn’t as bright. He forgot to pay the royalties to Kurosawa.”

The American detective novel Leone was talking about was the 1931 book by Dashiell Hammett “Glass Key,” was made into a film in 1942, and Kurosawa once said was the inspiration for “Yojimbo.” In fact, the story of “Yojimbo” is almost identical to Hammett’s 29th novel “Red Harvest”, but never mind.

The producer in question could be Arrigo “Harry” Colombo or Giorgio Papi, the two producers noted in “Fistful”. He did not give a specific name. Whether Leone is fabricating a story and breaking through the box is still a matter of speculation. However, when it comes to that amount, Leone admits to having lost millions of dollars.
