A Fistful of Dollars (1964)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) Though it is inspired from Akira Kurosawa’s Yojimbo (1961), it’s an original in its own terms. The film marks the birth of the iconic reticent cigar-smoking gun-slinger – the “Man with No Name”.
2) Ennio Morricone’s unforgettable soundtrack.
3) Gian Maria Volonté plays the merciless primary antagonist Ramón. One can wonder how he wasn’t part of the final Dollars Trilogy movie – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966).
4) The final duel with steel chest-plate. A battle between Colt .45 Revolver and Winchester Rifle.

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
