A Fistful of Dollars
- Rated R
The initial Clint Eastwood-Sergio Leone collaboration, its sardonic storyline lifted from Kurosawa's Yojimbo and re-located in a comic-book Italian version of the American West. (Not by any means the initial "spaghetti Western," but the one that opened the floodgates.) Deeply devoted to perspiration, whiskers, squints, and Ennio Morricone's bizarre tweedles and twangs. With Gian Maria Volonte (performing under the alias of John Wells) and Klaus Kinski. 1966.
