The film which brought both Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood to international fame, as well as kick-starting the widespread popularity of Spaghetti Westerns, A Fistful of Dollars is here presented in a new 4K digital restoration. Taking its inspiration from sources including Akira Kurosawa’s Yojimbo (1961), the film sees Eastwood’s iconic ‘Man With No Name’ arrive as a stranger in the town of San Miguel, where the Rojo and Baxter families vie for control.
Notes by Kevin Coyne.
Screening as part of Sergio Leone’s Dollars trilogy in April. For a Few Dollars More will screen on April 22nd, and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly will screen on April 29th.
