Volume 3, issue 9 of Canadian film magazine Take One. Highlights include an interview with Spaghetti Western progenitor Sergio Leone, in which the Fistful of Dollars director touches on his indebtedness to Akira Kurosawa, his awe for composer Ennio Morricone, and his love of Joseph Conrad; an essay on the relationship between Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris and Charlie Chaplin's A Woman of Paris; and the title essay on Hammer horror mainstay Terence Fisher. Take One, which ran from 1966-79, was founded by three members of the film society at McGill University in Montréal, and surveyed the Canadian and international film scenes, regularly publishing special issues devoted to relevant contemporary topics, and attracting contributions from notable critics and filmmakers.
