A Fistful Of Dollars

The film that launched the Spaghetti Western and the career of Clint Eastwood rides back into town. 

Eastwood plays ‘The Man With No Name’, a laconic gunslinger a who plays two warring families off against each other when he drifts into the one horse town of San Miguel. – resulting in a high body count and some great cinema.

Made on a small budget and based on Kurosawa’s Yojimbo, director Sergio Leone's first part of his iconic 'Three Dollars Trilogy' not only defined a new era for Westerns but also featured some of the most memorable musical themes in movie history, thanks to composer Ennio Morricone.
