Spaghetti Western Trivia ~ Fonda’s Baby Blues

Henry Fonda prepared for his role in “Once Upon a Time in the West” as the villain "Frank" by arriving in Italy with a pair of brown colored contact lenses and a mustache. When Sergio Leone saw them, he ordered them immediately removed. Leone had planned an important close-up shot where a gang of men have just gunned down a ranch family from ambush and then appear out of the sagebrush. The camera shows them walking toward the ranch house from a distance then it shows the men from the back and slowly pans around to show the face of their leader and we see Henry Fonda who the audience would instantly recognize Fonda with those blue eyes.
