About the Film
A pancho-clad, cigar-chewing, mysterious 'Man with No Name' rides into a small frontier town which is embroiled in a struggle for power between two families. He hires himself out as a mercenary, first to one faction and then to the other, with no regard for honor or morality. He plays both sides against the middle, collecting his money, until he eventually destroys both, leaving the town to the bartender, coffin-maker and bell ringer as he rides off into the desert from whence he came. Based on Akira Kurosawa's 1961 film Yojimbo.
best western ever!
The greatest "spaghetti" western ever. The one that launched a thousand copycat versions,even the wonderful score by Ennio Morricone...a must have in anybodys western collection!!!
An absolutely amazing addition to the itunes library! I believe this movie deserves at least a Five star rating!
Brilliant-But only the start
The first spaghetti western I saw, a Fistful... is legendary, with bullets as loud as explosions and close ups so extreme you can see the beards growing. The plot is simple (though not as much as the sequel, A Few Dollars More) but that is what enables Sergio to weave a masterpiece. Iconic score, too.
