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 as well as Hang 'Em High.
Sergio Leone's trilogy of operatic spaghetti Westerns with Clint Eastwood made the former TV star into an international sensation as the scraggly, silent Man with No Name, a wandering rogue with a scheming mind and a sense of humour drier than the dusty, wind-scoured desert. With A Fistful of Dollars, a blatant rip-off of Kurosawa's cynical samurai hit Yojimbo, Leone transforms the Western hero into a crafty mercenary. The follow-up, For a Few Dollars More, teams Eastwood up in an uneasy alliance with Lee Van Cleef in a tale of revenge, but the masterpiece of the set is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, an epic scramble for buried gold set against the violence of the Civil War. In this film good is a relative term as three criminals make a series of tenuous partnerships broken in double-crosses and betrayals in Leone's epic vision of the American southwest as endless deserts and clapboard towns infested with gunmen. This was a new kind of Western: cynical, violent, stylish, and austere. Eastwood's rough face and squinting eyes fill the widescreen frame in massive close-ups while Leone stages action in bold compositions on empty streets and stark landscapes. The guns ring out in cartoonish exaggeration, and the music, an eclectic, electric mix of buzzing guitar, human voice, and harmonica by Ennio Morricone, sets the whole thing in a world pitched between myth and modernity. Leone's shot-in-Spain trilogy ushered in a flood of Italian spaghetti Westerns, but none hold a candle to Leone's stylish classics. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com
Hang 'Em High--After starring in the now-legendary trilogy of spaghetti Westerns for Italian director Sergio Leone, Clint Eastwood became a box-office star and imported the style of those classic shoot-em-ups for this 1967 Western directed by Ted Post, with whom Eastwood had worked during their days on the television series Rawhide. Eastwood plays an innocent rancher who is mistaken for a cattle rustler and sentenced to hang by an angry mob. When he is saved from the noose by a passing lawman, he embarks on a renegade campaign of vengeance against the men who attempted to lynch him. Hang 'Em High offers a number of memorable moments and stylistic flourishes, and features a superb supporting cast of Western veterans, including Ben Johnson, Ed Begley, Pat Hingle, Dennis Hopper, Bruce Dern, LQ Jones, and the "Skipper" himself, Alan Hale Jr. Made just three years before Dirty Harry, the film marked a turning point for Eastwood, who would soon move into a prolific period of contemporary thrillers. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

But if you happen to be new to the world of westerns and you are wondering whether to buy the set or not, I recommend you do. You get four films for a very reasonable price, all of them uncut (I understood from the commentaries that when the films were released in the States, for instance, certain sequences were cut because they were deemed inappropriate) and the commentaries are an added bonus. Besides, the dollar trilogy is definitely something that every Eastwood fan must have.
The only slight downside is that the fourth film, 'Hang Em High' a good watch in itself, should really have been, 'Two Mules For Sister Sara' a tortilla western rather than spaghetti but it would have fitted in with the other three better.
Great value boxset and a definite must in any collection.
I will not go into too much detail about the films but for those of you that are new to these films all three spaghetti westerns are connected and they form a trilogy, perhaps one of the best trilogies out there. The three films all contain Clint Eastwood playing the now very "Man with no name." He is also joined by Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach. They all perform very well and deserve the critical acclaim received. Personally my favourite film out of the three is The Good the Bad and the Ugly, there is an engrossing plot that takes place during the civil war and the climax of the entire film, a brilliant gunfight in a graveyard is one of those truly memorable moments in film. The Gunfight is also on par with some of the greatest gunfights seen, even on par if not better than Gunfight at the OK Corral. Hang `Em High is not connected to the spaghetti westerns but it is nonetheless a fabulous film.
To review the box set itself I must say I was very impressed. It is a nicely presented cardboard outer casing that has on it a fantastic photo of the man with name and within that there are 4 thin cased individual DVDs. The information is clearly displayed and it gives you all the information that you could want on the bottom of the cardboard casing.
All in all this box set is a must buy for any western fan or if you are new to the genre there is no better place to start. It is a well presented and good quality box set and at only £7.99 it was a real bargain for me. This is definitely one the best box sets I own and I strongly recommend it.
I'm only writing this review as I think the one star is unfair as loads of boxsets are repacked from other sets.
However I have a problem, all the dvd's play a few seconds out of sync in terms of audio. Can't notice it during shoot-outs but during conversations it is noticeable and annoying. I got other DVD's for Xmas and they have worked fine so it's not my DVD player or Xbox, just with the Clint films. Anybody have any idea on how to resolve this?
