It’s been a big year for spaghetti Westerns—or at least,
tributes to them. Gore Verbinski paid homage in his bizarre kiddie flick
Rango, Community spoofed them in its season finale, and
Danger Mouse put out an album inspired by the music of the composer who
scored many of them, Ennio Morricone. Nothing beats the real thing,
though. For a Few Dollars More, from 1965, is the second
part in genre master Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy, starring Clint
Eastwood as a bounty hunter who roams the American Southwest, kicking
ass and taking names and never revealing his own. Laurelhurst.
