A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (PER UN PUGNO DE DOLLARI) 1964, MGM Repertory, 99 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Leone
Director Sergio Leone remade Akira Kurosawa?s YOJIMBO with Clint Eastwood as a poncho-wearing, cheroot-chewing assassin, and wound up with the most revolutionary Western of the 1960s (aided by composer Ennio Morricone?s instantly memorable theme music). Co-starring the great Italian actor Gian Maria Volonte (INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION) as Eastwood?s nemesis.


FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (PER QUALCHE DOLLARO IN PIU) 1965, MGM Repertory, 130 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Leone
Sergio Leone?s sequel to FISTFUL stars Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef as rival bounty hunters who wind up tracking the same man (Gian Maria Volonte). The final three-way shootout ranks with the greatest set pieces in moviemaking history.
