Once Upon A Time: Sergio Leone


This is an Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!

fistfulofdollars.jpg (34964 bytes)

Italian director Sergio Leone began his career with the sword-and-sandals opus COLOSSUS OF RHODES in 1961. In 1964, inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s YOJIMBO, Leone helmed A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, which starred the then virtually unknown Clint Eastwood. The picture proved a mega-hit in Europe and did well enough in the U.S. to encourage United Artists to release its sequel, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, and the majestic conclusion of the trilogy, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. Next up were Leone’s operatic masterworks ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and the tragicomic DUCK YOU SUCKER (aka A FIST FULL OF DYNAMITE). It wasn’t until 1984 that his next effort was released, a magnum opus about Prohibition-era Jewish gangsters in New York, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, starring Robert De Niro. Sadly, it turned out to be the maestro’s swan song. Sergio Leone died in 1989, leaving a legacy of influence in his wake.

Double Feature: A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (PER UN PUGNO DE DOLLARI), 1964, MGM Repertory, 99 min. Director Sergio Leone remade Akira Kurosawa’s YOJIMBO with Clint Eastwood as a poncho-wearing, cheroot-chewing gunman, and wound up with the most revolutionary western of the 1960s. Trailer

FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (PER QUALCHE DOLLARO IN PIU), 1965, MGM Repertory, 130 min. Sergio Leone’s sequel to FISTFUL stars Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef as rival bounty hunters who wind up tracking the same man (Gian Maria Volonte). Trailer

[DCP Format] Trailer More digitally restored films.





Saturday, January 30 - 7:30 PM
