Definitely a classic. Clint is in his element, once again as the Man with No Name, but this time there is a more mysterious and somewhat deeper persona. No longer the bounty hunter, this time his presence signifies justice and is centred around the town of Lago, where years earlier a young marshal was murdered in full view of the town's occupants who idly stood by. The Stranger ensures that everyone, those who were directly responsible and those who did nothing, will suffer for their respective sins.
Eerier and lacking the comfortable silliness of the Dollars' trilogy, this packs a moral punch, though not necessarily one that will accord with all tastes.
