Starring Claudia Cardinale, Henry Fonda, Jasononce upon a time Robards and Charles Bronson, the screenplay for the film was written by Leone and Sergio Donati and based on a story by Leone himself together with Bernardo Bertolucci and Dario Argento. The director of photography was Tonino Delli Colli and the soundtrack was composed by Ennio Morricone. Once Upon a Time in the West was the first episode of Leone's "Time Trilogy", which continued with Giù la testa (1971) and Once upon a time in America (1984).
