...What is it called (in cinema) when a lens is stopped down enough for the b.g. and f.g. to both retain sharp focus and two or more focal points can be achieved. You see this a lot in Leone films, with one actor's face taking up half the frame and in the b.g. is another actor, also in focus.
Is there a "term" for this technique?

and using this smaller frame film format with wide angle lenses stopped down gave
a very deep depth of field or 'deep focus'

doing it in-camera impractical. Not my fav movie of all time, but Gregg Toland did this a lot on "Citizen Kane." One famous
scene has someone watching Kane on a dias giving speech, while high up in the "cheap seats" someone s watching.
Both are in focus. It was a combination of two separate shots....
