This past weekend, legendary actors Robert De Niro, James Woods, Treat Williams and William Forsythe attended the The 52nd New York Film Festival for a Q&A and screening of the extended version of their 1984 classic Once Upon a Time in America directed by Sergio Leone. The extended version includes 22 minutes of restored footage – never before seen in the United States – deepening the characters and enlarging the work of the astonishing cast and director.

Once Upon a Time in America: Extended Director's Cut is available today on Blu-ray and DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
