Its my understanding there are more than two versions out there.
Once Upon a Time is one of my all-time favorites and a semi-hobby of
mine. I first saw it in film school, with Leoni in person, and I was a
lost cause after that. Incredible, but often over looked.
There is a 16mm version, at least four syndication versions, and
god knows what all on video. I have a copy of Morricone's soundtrack
which still holds up so well. There is talk about re-releasing it again
in a few major towns.
The opening sequence is a text book on sound effects. I remember
Leoni saying that the film was shot in "Techniscope." 35mm, but only
pulling down three perfs at a time. The process was quite popular at the
time. I think the "Conformist" was also shot in that format.
And what a cast!
