Product Description

Product Description

Sergio Leone's spaghetti western is a remake of the Kurosawa classic 'Yojimbo' and features Clint Eastwood in his first big-screen starring role. Laconic gunslinger the Man With No Name (Eastwood) makes a financial killing by playing two feuding families off each other in a small Southwestern town.

From Amazon.co.uk

A Fistful of Dollars launched the spaghetti Western and catapulted Clint Eastwood to stardom. Based on Akira Kurosawa's 1961 samurai picture Yojimbo, it scored a resounding success (in Italy in 1964 and the U.S. in 1967), as did its sequels, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The advertising campaign promoted Eastwood's character--laconic, amoral, dangerous--as the Man with No Name (though in the film he's clearly referred to as Joe), and audiences loved the movie's refreshing new take on the Western genre. Gone are the pieties about making the streets safe for women and children. Instead it's every man for himself. Striking, too, was a new emphasis on violence, with stylized, almost balletic gunfights and baroque touches such as Eastwood's armoured breastplate. The Dollars films had a marked influence on the Hollywood Western--for example, Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch--but their most enduring legacy is Clint Eastwood himself. --Edward Buscombe --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By S J Buck TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 13 Nov. 2006
Format: DVD
This two DVD set is the best version to buy of this film. The remastering/restoration is excellent, so the picture quality is superb. The film itself needs little introduction, it wasn't the first Italian/European western, but it was the first that tried to be different from the standard US western.

Based on Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961), this is the film that changed Eastwood from a little known American TV star of the early 60's into a movie Icon. Eastwood wasn't the first choice for the part, there were 4 or 5 preferred actors in front of him. But Eastwood was prepared to work considerably cheaper than these people and made the movie for $15,000.

All of this and more is revealed in the excellent commentary by Sir Christopher Frayling on disc 1. Having the commentary makes this version essential as Sir Christopher is THE expert on Leone and Eastwood.

I haven't even mentioned disc 2, well this contains documentaries and the usual stuff you associate with special editions. However there are two reasons to buy this version of the DVD. 1. The Film. 2. The Commentary.

Fabulous!

A Fistful of Dollars was the 'spaghetti western' that broke through and made Eastwood and Leone into box-office successes and changed the way that the public regarded Westerns. This is moody, laconic, blood thirsty and has a dead-pan laconic humour to leaven the mixture.

All the principals contribute to the film and if I had not seen the even better sequel 'For a Few Dollars More' I would have been well content with this one. The final part of the trilogy 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' is possibly the weakest, but still an outstanding part of the set.

Having been remastered, this Special Edition is a great improvement on the earlier releases, with a much clearer and more steady (2.35:1 in 16:9 format) print and much better 5.1 sound. The second disc is a welcome addition with the special features, and well worth a view.

I bought all three of these at the same time as DVD special editions, and we watched the sequence one wet Sunday with breaks for Tea and Dinner. Excellent. Ten years later we still occasionally dip into these and they seem just as fresh as first time around, even though we know what is coming next.

Format: DVD
This film was Leone's first big film, and Clint Eastwood's first big screen appearance. To a fan of either this is essential: there is a proper 16:9 widescreen version (unlike the single disc versions) and has had the similarly excellent remastering that The Good, the Bad and the Ugly got. The extras are as good in quality as the latter's, but what this film is really about is the taut tension, the despicable villains and of course the legendary Clint Eastwood as The Man With No Name. Great dialogue that is often darkly humorous (the mule shootout for example) and all backed up by a great score from the legendary Ennio Morricone. To Western fans this is one of the pioneers of the genre. To movie fans in general, if you've ever seen a heavily built up gunfight (Dirty Harry, any John Woo film, and especially any Tarantino film) chances are the director has been heavily influenced by Leone's legacy to movies. Every red-blooded male NEEDS this film in their collection along with the other Dollar films that were undoubtedly Leone and arguably Eastwood's best work.

I love this film and have it on dvd already. This is the blu-ray version that I have bought and the quality comes through better than ever, it has been all cleaned up and improved. I love it even more now, superb.

Fabulous film, with a charismatic performance by Clint Eastwood, great direction by Sergio Leone and a timeless score by Ennio Morricone; 3 legends producing a legendary film. The Blu-ray is great, with fascinating extras, and it looks wonderful for what, at the time, was a very low-budget film.

Format: DVD
Not a review of the film, more of a review of the DVD. My major gripe with this disk is that it is non anamorphic. Despite being described as 2.35 Widescreen and being a release from as late as 2005 the picture is presented within a 4*3 frame. This means that if you have your DVD or BluRay player connected by an HDMI it's probably going to have borders top and bottom, left and right. If you can watch it "zoomed in" you suffer a loss in picture quality.

This type of presentation is not really suitable in this time when more and more people have a widescreen television. Amazon should do a much better job at showing this within the product details section.

Film 4 stars. DVD 0 stars.

A story about a wanderer who pits two rival gangs against each other to his own profit. Based on a Japanese drama, Yojimbo, which was also adapted less successfully into a Bruce Willis vehicle - Last man standing.

Despite the 'spaghetti' label there is nothing cheap about the drama. Gripping and entertaining throughout.

This is one of the famous Westerns ever shot and made Clint a superstar, quite rightly so. No one in their right mind would ever wish to live in that town.

Quality of DVD excellent, as ever.
