Henry Fonda played Frank in Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West. Once Upon a Time in America is Leone’s gansgter flick with Bobby Deniro and Jimmy Woods (see how I call ’em Bobby and Jimmy like I’m all down wit’ those cats and can do that).

Just sayin’

Once Upon a Time in America is a fantastic film. In the top five gangster films for me.
