Italy-Spain-West Germany 1966
Dir Sergio Leone
With Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Eli Wallach, Rada Rassimov
In his final film with Leone, Eastwood plays The Man with No Name (or ‘Blondie’). Amid the turbulence of the American Civil War, Blondie – along with two other, equally dangerous and resourceful men – is after a stash of stolen confederate gold. Ironically, Leone and Eastwood produced some of their finest work during a period of deteriorating relations, and the resulting film is surely one of the greatest westerns ever made.
