Here's a special thanks to Intrepid for sending me a clip of this movie and reminding me of it. Along with horror movies, I can't get enough of westerns. This is one of my all time favorites. Clint Eastwood is just amazing in this movie.

Released in 1964, this movie features Clint Eastwood (who plays the man with no name); a wandering gunfighter. He comes to a town that's being torn apart by a war between two families. He decides to play the two against each other and maybe make some cash in the bargain. Life and death hang in the balance for a Fistful of Dollars.

Here is the movie. Enjoy!

All three films in that Trilogy, The Man With No Name Trilogy or also known as The Dollars Trilogy , are worth watching if you are a fan of Spaghetti Westerns or just Westerns in general..

In case you didn't know the three films in the trilogy are:

1. A Fistful of Dollars - 1964
2. For a Few Dollars More - 1965
3. The Good, The Bad, The Ugly - 1966 (my favorite of the 3)

The whole trilogy is directed by Sergio Leone and really defined what a Spaghetti Western is..

B grade compared to the Magnificent 7
If you get a chance put that in the video recorder and see the very best of the 60s westerns

Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach and Steve McQueen Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, James Coburn

I think Leone/Eastwoods spaghetti Westerns were better than most US westerns, something about the antihero catches the imagination.

My dad is a John Wayne fan, and while I like some of Wayne's movies and he's great. I sort of prefer Eastwood.

I also like Pale Rider.

The good the bad and the ugly is also my favourite.
Im suprised at all the near miss accidents that accured.

Here is a bit of trivia from IMDB:


The movie remains the highest rated movie in IMDb to not receive a single oscar nomination.



When the bridge is blown up, and Tuco and Blondie are hunkered down behind sandbags waiting for the explosion, Clint Eastwood's career came within 2 feet of ending prematurely. A fist-sized piece of rock shrapnel from the explosion slams into the sandbag right next to Eastwood's head (watch it in slow motion to see the rock flying in).

A Fistful of Dollars was a remake of the 1961 Japanese movie Yojimbo. The full movie is on YouTube with subtitles if anyone is interested in watching it.

Same with the Magnificent 7..
That was a remake of 1954 film Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa

Yep, and the Magnificent Seven is just a rehash of Seven Samurai. What it really says is that a good story is a good story no matter what cultural trappings you give it.

Oops! Got beat.

Hey, be nice. There are so many bad old Westerns that it's easy to dismiss the genre and miss the gems.
