By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential spaghetti western ever mounted, Sergio Leone's loud, funny, amoral epic concerns three greedy men hunting a $200,000 cache of Confederate Army gold: drifter Clint Eastwood as The Man With No Name, Lee Van Cleef as a sadistic Union Army officer, and the hilarious Eli Wallach as a murderous Mexican bandito. Classic film score by Ennio Morricone.
