Leone had long been nurturing a big-budget, science fiction film script he had written many years before, and convinced a reluctant Eastwood to star in his epic as a last favor before returning to the states. The script was entitled "War of the Colossal Freaks of Frankenstein's Planet" and was pure, red-blooded, action adventure that harkened back to the days when Leone directed his first few gladiator "Sword and Sandal" films at the beginning of his career. With Clint now on board, Leone was able to gather financing for his film, and even sign an impressive list of actors to play a few of the supporting roles. Legendary actor and director Orson Welles came on the production to play the evil villain of Frankenstein's Planet: Lord Razoraxx (many believe he merely took ...
