«When they tell that I am the father of the Italian Western, I have to say “How many sons of bitches do you think I’ve spawned?”» First chapter of Sergio Leone’s “Dollars Trilogy”, A Fistful of Dollars started as a low budget film which ended up to create a new genre: Spaghetti Western.
The film starred two fantastic actors in the leading roles: Clint Eastwood, the perfect “man with no name”, who then became the incarnation of a new western icon, and Gian Maria Volonté, memorable villain as Ramón.
These great performances, together with unforgettable dialogues, wouldn’t be so powerful without Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack.
