Conflict over a parcel of land with a vital water source, resulting in a standoff between three characters (played by Claudia Cardinale, Jason Robards and Charles Bronson) and the interests of a rapacious railroad company, is the focus of this epic that helped redefine notions about the West. Working from a story co-written with Bernardo Bertolucci and Dario Argento, Leone drew inspiration from many key Westerns to construct his masterpiece. It works as an homage to what came before, a deconstruction of capitalism at its most aggressive and a riveting addition to the genre. It also features another mesmerising score by the great Ennio Morricone.
