A Fistful of Dollars (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Sergio Leone
Gian Maria Volonte
Brand New 4K Restoration! The film that started it all… the genre of “Spaghetti Western” was born, The Man with No Name was introduced and the iconic talents of star Clint Eastwood (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Unforgiven), director Sergio Leone (For a Few Dollars More, A Fistful of Dynamite) and composer Ennio Morricone (Navajo Joe, Death Rides a Horse) were launched. An instant international phenomenon, this hard-hitting epic stunned audiences with its violence, gritty realism and tongue-in-cheek humor. A lean, cold-eyed, cobra-quick gunfighter (Eastwood) arrives in a grim and dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers terrorize the impoverished citizens. Though he receives lucrative offers of employment from each gang, his loyalty cannot be bought. He accepts both jobs... and sets in motion a deadly plan to destroy the criminals, pitting one against the other in a series of brilliantly orchestrated setups, showdowns and deadly confrontations. Co-starring Marianne Koch (The Devil’s General) and Gian Maria Volontè (Face to Face, The Red Circle).
