Spaghetti westerns earned their name in the ’60s on the back of a series of box office smash hits directed by master film-maker Sergio Leone, which were sometimes shot in Italy and scored by the legendary, Ennio Morricone. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is regarded as the best of the West, giving title characters Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee van Cleef immortality.
Hugely influential, Leone’s film is brutal, graceful and stylish, a sprawling Western epic that deserves to be seen on the big screen. The breathtaking direction, acting, score, storytelling and constant reinvention make this is a classic and essential piece of cinema.
This classic Western epic is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
