Product Description

Triple bill of Sergio Leone westerns, starring Clint Eastwood as the Man With No Name. In 'A Fistful of Dollars', the laconic gunslinger (Eastwood) makes a financial killing by playing two feuding families off each other in a small Southwestern town. 'For a Few Dollars More' sees him reluctantly joining forces with bounty hunter Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) to battle psychotic bandit El Indio (Gian Maria Volonte) and his gang of outlaws. 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' is set during the American Civil War, when the paths of three loners - Joe (Eastwood), Tuco (Eli Wallach) and Setenza (Lee Van Cleef) - cross as they search for the grave of Bill Carson, home to a hidden fortune. As the war intensifies, the treasure seekers become drawn into a battle that dwarfs their own mercenary pursuits.

5.0 out of 5 stars The brilliant, the fantastic, and the amazing. 13 Jan 2004
Format:DVD
What a boxset. Sergio Leone's 'Dollars Trilogy' on DVD.
Packaging: The packaging consists of an outside box, with three DVD boxes inside. Very nice packaging, looks very cool.
Content: Three Discs. Three movies. 'A Fistful of Dollars', 'For a Few Dollars more', and 'The good, the bad, and the ugly'.
Special Features: Theatrical trailers for each of the movies, three 8 page colour film guides for each of the movies, with 14 minutes of never-before-seen footage added on to 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'. The Audio Dialogue can be in English or French, and the subtitles are in English, Dutch, and French.
The movies: The Movies, are of course, the most important thing in your boxset. These movies are fantastic, let me tell you. When I watched 'A Fistful of Dollars' I couldn't move because I was so stuck on it.
Not for family viewing. These films are very violent, full of gunfights and jailbreaks, and some minor drug use. Because, as Sergio Leone himself said, "My Films are Violent because the real wild west was founded on violence."
With some beautiful scenery, excellent dialogue, and a role so perfectly suited to Clint Eastwood, these movies are gems. Excellent scenes, such as the climactic 'Dance of Death' in 'Ugly', and the final showdown between The man With no name and Ramon in 'Fistful'. All of this put to perfection by Leone's superb direction, the tongue-in-cheek humour of the cast, and the haunting score by Ennio Morricone, one of the most respected names in movie music to this day.
Fantastic boxset, with Fantasic movies. A+++++

ok, how good are these films? if it were possible, i would give it 1000 stars...but its not.
where shall i start? In Fistful of Dollars, Clint plays around in two rival families just to gain a few bucks, and cause more trouble than he bargained for! It is simply the third best western ever of all time. the best bit? "my mule dont like people laughing".
For a Few Dollars More, is the second best western ever. This time, Clint teams up with Lee Van Cleef to track down a killer for money. Best bit? Clint and Lee shoot each other's hats around the town.
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is, in my view, the Greatest Western Ever Made. Clint is marvellous as the Good. Lee Van Cleef (in a different role from a Few Dollars More) is evil personified as the Bad, and Eli Wallach is brillian as Tuco, or the Ugly. Best bit? Tuco fins the cemetary where $200 000 is buried and searches for the money and the music swells.
If you haven't seen them,see them. If you have, see them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST WESTERN TRILOGY is released on DVD! 29 Jan 2001
Format:DVD
Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns featuring Clint Eastwood.. Three classic westerns (I think the best ever). Everyone knows the story of the films so I will just tell you my opinion about the product. The DVD box is excellent and I can say that I am completely satisfied with all 3 films. Video and sound quality is very good. These are the best versions I have seen (as far as quality is concerned). Get them right now! This is going to be one of your favorite DVD boxes!

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I was Clint Eastwood 5 Jun 2007
By JDB11
Format:DVD
I believe this particular box set offers the best value for money when it comes to this must have collection of films. I'm not really one for special features particlarly, and there is little of that here. To be honest when you own these three films you have no need to be distracted by such things.

The films themselves? Well, theres little that needs to be said. They launched the career of one of the most iconic actors of the twentieth century and brought richly deserved attention to one of cinema's most stylish directors and one of its most able composers. For Clint Eastwood, Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone these three films represent their very best work.

For a brief synopsis, Fistful of Dollars is a scene for scene remake of Akira Kurasawa's Yojimbo, and it follows an un-named stranger as he comes to a town and pits two rival gangs against one another. For a Few Dollars More is the story of an un-named bounty hunter who teams up with another as they try and collect on a gang. Finally the Good the Bad and the Ugly is the epic tale of three men on a treasure hunt (yes, one is un-named) against the backdrop of the American Civil War.

Now some of the acting is decidedly hammy, it is badly dubbed in places, The Good the Bad and the Ugly is woefully historically inaccurate and the stories are neither original or complex. None of this matters. What is important is that Clint Eastwood is so effortlessly cool in every single moment of scenetime. He never says a word that can't be intimated with a squint. You know he is going to blow away any foe and nothing ever rattles him. Sergio Leone's direction is wonderfully stylised. He is now so famous for his extreme close-ups that I almost need not mention it.

Format:VHS Tape
Directed by the man who put Spaghetti into the Western - Sergio Leone! the box set is a definite buy, western and Clint fans could not live without them. Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach present a truly memorable role in 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly, which is famed as the best western of all time. Although this box office hit was filmed in 1966, after its two predecessors, it acts as a prequel as it was set during the civil war.

A few years ago I saw the 'Dollars' trilogy on TV during a western season, and to be honest I did'nt think much of them. How wrong I was! The films are stunning, a great buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars THREE OF THE BEST
Without these movies, Mr Eastwood would be selling shoes and have the first name 'Billy'. Brilliant then, and even more so now.True art has a life of its own.
