    Synopsis


    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    In the last and the best installment of his so-called "Dollars" trilogy of Sergio Leone-directed "spaghetti westerns," Clint Eastwood reprised the role of a taciturn, enigmatic loner. Here he searches for a cache of stolen gold against rivals the Bad (Lee Van Cleef), a ruthless bounty hunter, and the Ugly (Eli Wallach), a Mexican bandit. Though dubbed "the Good," Eastwood's character is not much better than his opponents -- he is just smarter and shoots faster. The film's title reveals its ironic attitude toward the canonized heroes of the classical western. "The real West was the world of violence, fear, and brutal instincts," claimed Leone. "In pursuit of profit there is no such thing as good and evil, generosity or deviousness; everything depends on chance, and not the best wins but the luckiest." Immensely entertaining and beautifully shot in Techniscope by Tonino Delli Colli, the movie is a virtually definitive "spaghetti western," rivaled only by Leone's own Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). The main musical theme by Ennio Morricone hit #1 on the British pop charts. Originally released in Italy at 177 minutes, the movie was later cut for its international release. ~ Yuri German, Rovi

    For a Few Dollars More
    This pulse-pounding follow-up to Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars brings back Clint Eastwood as the serape-clad, cigar-chewing "Man With No Name." Engaged in an ongoing battle with bounty hunter Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef), the Man joins forces with his enemy to capture homicidal bandit Indio (Gian Maria Volontè). Both the Eastwood and Van Cleef characters are given understandable motivations for their bloodletting tendencies, something that was lacking in A Fistful of Dollars. In both films, however, the violence is raw and uninhibited -- and in many ways, curiously poetic. Leone's tense, tight close-ups, pregnant pauses, and significant silences have since been absorbed into the standard spaghetti Western lexicon; likewise, Ennio Morricone's haunting musical score has been endlessly imitated and parodied. For a Few Dollars More was originally titled Per Qualche Dollaro in Più; it would be followed by the last and best of the Man with No Name trilogy, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Hang 'Em High
    A Fistful of Dollars
    By the time Sergio Leone made this film, Italians had already produced about 20 films ironically labelled "spaghetti westerns." Leone approached the genre with great love and humor. Although the plot was admittedly borrowed from Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961), Leone managed to create a work of his own that would serve as a model for many films to come. Clint Eastwood plays a cynical gunfighter who comes to a small border town and offers his services to two rivaling gangs. Neither gang is aware of his double play, and each thinks it is using him, but the stranger will outwit them both. The picture was the first installment in a cycle commonly known as the "Dollars" trilogy. Later, United Artists, who distributed it in the U.S., coined another term for it: the "Man With No Name" trilogy. While not as impressive as its follow-ups For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966), A Fistful of Dollars contains all of Leone's eventual trademarks: taciturn characters, precise framing, extreme close-ups, and the haunting music of Ennio Morricone. Not released in the U.S. until 1967 due to copyright problems, the film was decisive in both Clint Eastwood's career and the recognition of the Italian western. ~ Yuri German, Rovi

      An OUTSTANDING Eastwood buy

      The Italian-made "Man with no name" western trilogy ("A Fistful of Dollars," "For a Few Dollars More" and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly") played an important part in Clint Eastwood's successful movie career. The movies, which were all directed by Sergio Leone, were released in 1964, 1965 and 1966. All were huge box office successes. Eastwood also starred in a 1968 American Western called "Hang 'Em High" that wasn't directed by Leone but has some similarities to the Italian trilogy. The "Man with no name" trilogy and "Hang 'Em High" were packaged together in a brilliant marketing move, and I was lucky enough to find it at the local Best Buy for an amazing price. Clint Eastwood is one of my favorite actors and directors, and these four movies are the link between Clint's television success on "Rawhide" and his successful career in films. It is one of the best bargains I found this year.

      Best of the Spaghetti Westerns

      The quartet of westerns in "The Clint Eastwood Collection" (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and Hang 'Em High) thrust the aforementioned superstar into the public's eye. The first 3 films mentioned are generally known as the "Dollars" (or the Man With No Name) trilogy and were directed by Sergio Leone and scored by Grammy winning composer, Ennio Morricone. Eastwood plays a reluctant hero in each film representing "good" while going up against baddies like, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach. Hang 'Em High was not a Spaghetti Western, but still a familiar Eastwood vehicle consisting of a man (Eastwood) seeking revenge after surviving his hanging brought on by a ruthless gang. These are some of the best Westerns ever made, so go enjoy!

      These are still really great movies and this is a nice collection of early Eastwood films. I hadn't watched the Leone films in some time and it was really fun to see them again, and in digital format. And of course it is fun to see the detail of the weaponry and see Clint learning his craft as a young actor and eventually becoming a great director. Leone also really captures the look and feel of the old west with the dirt, dust and sweat!

      I purchased this set for my father who just loves these Clint Eastwood movies. I tried them all out on my theater system first to make sure all the movies worked. All movies seem to work and have video quality, except for "Hang em High". Hang em High is "boxed" off into the middle of the screen which is annoying. I'm sure you can change the resolution settings on certain tv's but the quality won't be the same. Overall my father enjoyed the gift.

      This package contains the first four cowboy movies Client Eastwood made in the 1960's. It's classic Clint and if you like his cowboy movies, this collection is a must have that started it all off. It's DVD quality only unfortunately. I was hoping it would be redone in blu ray quality, but that wasn't a show stopper for me. If was in in blu ray, it'll be a full five stars.

      As I am sure everyone can relate, there are several movies that when I find them showing on television, I will nearly always watch them. The three Clint Eastwood "man with no name" movies are these type movies for me. So, when I got sick and had to stay in bed for a few days, I bought this DVD set and watched one movie a day...no waiting for them to come on television! They made being sick a little less depressing.

      If like me you love old movies, westerns, and the classic oldies, these won't dissapoint, they are the perfect westerns and heck you get 4 for the price of 1 and with the discount I got I didn't even pay 10 bucks for these 4 classics. Clint Eastwood is the perfect Cowboy/western hero and its a shame he probably won't do any more of these. Enjoy, these are the best there is.
