Although Tonino Valerii’s name is well known among fans of Italian films most of us know little about the man himself. He’s been thought of as a protégé  of Sergio Leone and this has actually hindered his reputation and appreciation as a filmmaker. In Robert Curti’s new book Tonino Valerii: The Films from McFarland Publishing he set’s the record straight and fills us in on Valerii’s life and film credits. He is much more than a Leon clone as he learned from Sergio but developed his own style of making films. Through extensive research and interviews Curti gives us the story of the often overlooked director and brings light on much new information. A must read for Spaghetti western fans and fans of Italian cinema of the Golden Age. ~ Tom Betts
