About the film:

In the Wild West, a murderous outlaw known as El Indio (Gian Maria Volonte) and his gang are terrorizing and robbing the citizens of the region. With a bounty on El Indio’s head, two bounty hunters, Monco (Clint Eastwood) and Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef), come to collect the prize. Upon their first meeting, the two men view each other as rivals, but they eventually agree to become partners in their mutual pursuit of the vicious criminal.

“a gloriously greasy, sweaty, hairy, bloody and violent Western. It is delicious.”

—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

About the filmmaker:

Sergio Leone was an Italian film director most notably known for popularizing the “spaghetti western,” a sub-genre of movies made in Italy but set in the 19th-century American West. As the child of an industry pioneer, Leone was able to access positions in the industry from in early age, beginning his career as an assistant to directors like Fred Zinnemon, Robert Wise, Willian Wyler, and more. Later on, Leone worked as a second-unit director on a handful of productions before collaborating as a screenwriter on the films Sheba and the Gladiator (1959) and The Last Days of Pompeii (1959).

In 1961, Leone made his directorial debut with the pseudo-historical epic The Colossus of Rhodes (1961). His second film, A Fistful of Dollars (1964), marked the beginning of his “Dollars Trilogy” and of his stylized violent westerns. This film was a massive success, shooting Clint Eastwood to stardom. In 1965 Leone released his follow-up film For a Few Dollars More, and the final film of the trilogy, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966) came out the following year. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966) is widely considered Leone’s masterpiece and crowning achievement.
