Contains the three great Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns: A Fistful Of Dollars; For A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.
A Fistful Of Dollars: Clint Eastwood's stunning Spaghetti Western debut. When the Man With No Name rides into town, the rival gangs of the Baxters and the Rojos soon find themselves fighting each other. As the lean, cold-eyed cobra-quick gunfighter, Clint became the first of the Western's anti-herores. The cynical enigmatic loner with a clouded past is the same character Eastwood fans have been savouring ever since. A Fistful Of Dollars is the western taken to the extreme - with unremitting violence, gritty realism and tongue-in-cheek humour. Leone's direction is taut and stylish, and the visuals are striking - from the breathtaking panoramas (in Spain) to the extreme close-ups of quivering lips and darting eyes before the shoot-out begins. And all are accentuated by renowned composer Ennio Morricone's quirky, haunting score.

For A Few Dollars More: Clint Eastwood had proven so successful in his first foray into European Westerns with A Fistful Of Dollars that a follow up sequel was inevitable. Superbly scripted by Luciano Vincenzoni, featuring an unforgettable alliance between ruthless gun-slingers to track down the notorious bandit El Indio, played by Gian Maria Volonte. The film is also noted for its array of weaponry, a veritable arsenal of rifles that became so startingly influential in future westerns. Sergio Leone's direction is both violent and operatic and Ennio Morricone's atmospheric score keeps the tension taut as the action moves from jail breaks and hold ups to spectacular gun battles.

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly: By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever attempted, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns for a final appearance as the invincible Man With No Name, this time teaming with two gunslingers (Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef) to pursue a cache of $200,000 - and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard closeups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly shatters the western in true Clint Eastwood style. The complex plot of bloodshed and betrayal winds its way through the American Civil War, filmed to resemble the French battlefields of WW1, to end in a climactic Dance of Death. Arguably the quintessential Italian Western, this 1966 film boasts a fine Ennio Morricone score, featuring a main theme that reached No.1 in the world's pop charts.

These were filmed mostly in Spain, will order for OH birthday!

the dvd's are worth this price for the commentary tracks alone, I bought this ages ago for £12 I think and is the best value for money I have ever gotten.

Isn't this a better deal:

hotukdeals.com/ite…ful

Mind you if you can't find this in store (though plenty when I looked last week), then a good second place.

Get 4 films instead of the 3 here too

Yet people from there, are linking to here as this set has all the extras.

Bad call.

After reviewing them both, I think ANYONE would prefer to spend the extra 86p and know they're much better off.

On tp of that, this has free delivery so it doesn't matter if it's not in store or not.

Thank you, another christmas pressie sorted.

And Quidco

******** Ordered The Good, The Bad and the Ugly Special Edition from Play a few months ago and still not watched it. Might order this anyway since I've had a few beers

Hi
That's a 4 disc boxset - not remastered / no extras / not 5.1DTS etc
This is a 6 disc boxset - remastered with deleted scenes / more extras than you can shake a big stick at / 5.1 DTS etc
Suppose it depends on whether you want the extra remastered stuff or not; but this is the boxset to get IMO as it's literally the dogs for any Clint / Spag Western fan

wonderful films, worth more than this price just ordered a set.a great find. I LOVE CLINT EASTWOOD!!!

I'm sold! ::stocking:

Amazing films, full of incredible primal themes, photography and music at a time when Italian cinema was a world standard.

Technically Italian cinematographers, sound technicians and technical staff still rule but on American directed film and TV.

This is a GREAT bargain!

Pity Zavvi are shiiite. Is this the one that comes in a nice metal tin?

Cheapest so far in the last few moths

Anyone else had an email about no stock, I agree about them being shiite, this is the third time Zavvi has done this to me.

Update, update, came this morning!!!!
