The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo

1966

Sergio Leone
Director

Sergio Leone's spaghetti western masterpiece pits three men against each other in a bid to find hidden gold in an unmarked grave during the American civil war. Full of deceit, selfishness and the desire to be stinking rich, Eastwood (the good), Van Cleef (the bad), and Wallach (the ugly) form reluctant partnerships in an effort to retrieve the loot.

I have to say, the commentary track on the Special Edition Extended Cut DVD by Richard Schickel is not only inaccurate but the most boring I have ever heard. Rambling on and on about insignificant facts and hardly ever describing the on-screen action nor identifying any of the supporting cast - and this guy calls himself a 'film historian'?

Note: IMDb's listing for this film, like their entries for all spaghetti westerns (and most foreign films in general) is full of errors. Some I have been able to correct.
