Western #9: A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

fistful of dollars

As far as Spaghetti Western remakes of Yojimbo, I think I slightly prefer Sergio Corbucci’s Django over this film. It’s just got that little bit of ridiculousness that pushes it into “oh my god this is awesome” territory. Fistful of Dollars is still pretty great, even though it is the lesser of the trilogy. What’s funny is most of what I knew about this film before I saw it came from Back to the Future III, so I can’t help but think of Marty McFly during certain scenes — or the whole thing. Regardless, it’s still a fun time. Clint Eastwood is badass.
