More Details

Synopsis:
Sergio Leone's epic film chronicles the lives and loves of a quintet of Jewish mobsters from New York. Beginning with their boyhood in the 1920's, the film covers the story from the point of view of the aging troupe's clever ringleader, Noodles. He recounts the tale of a life filled with brutality and violence. And clearly he's still got some plans up his sleeve...

Notes:
"Once Upon a Time in America" was Sergio Leone's final film as a director. A 143 minute version of this film is also available. This version (225 minutes), is the uncut version.
