Double Feature!
A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS / FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS
PER UN PUGNO DE DOLLARI
1964, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Leone

Director Sergio Leone remade Akira Kurosawa’s YOJIMBO with Clint Eastwood as a poncho-wearing, cheroot-chewing assassin, and wound up with the most revolutionary Western of the 1960s (aided by composer Ennio Morricone’s instantly memorable theme music). Co-starring the great Italian actor Gian Maria Volonte (INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION) as Eastwood’s nemesis.


FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
PER QUALCHE DOLLARO IN PIU
1965, Park Circus/MGM, 130 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Leone

Sergio Leone’s sequel to FISTFUL stars Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef as rival bounty hunters who wind up tracking the same man (Gian Maria Volonte). The final three-way shootout ranks with the greatest set pieces in moviemaking history.
