Dir Sergio Leone
With Clint Eastwood, Gian Maria Volontè, Marianne Koch
The first part of Leone’s Dollars trilogy introduces Clint Eastwood’s nameless anti-hero and Leone’s iconic musical collaboration with Ennio Morricone. Made on a small budget, and based on Kurosawa’s Yojimbo, the story centres on a small town at the centre of a fight for control between two warring families. A stranger arrives and manipulates the feud to his own advantage, resulting in a high body count and some great cinema.
