The Sergio Leone "spaghetti westerns" did not simply add a new chapter to the genre... they reinvented it. From his shockingly violent and stylized breakthrough, "A Fistful Of Dollars", to the film Quentin Tarantino calls "the best-directed movie of all time," "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", Leone's vision did for westerns what talkies did for all movies back in the 1920s: it elevated them to an entirely new art form. Fully restored, presented in high definition with their best-ever audio, and including audio commentaries, featurettes and more, these films are much more than the definitive Leone collection... they are the most ambitious and influential westerns ever made. "Clint Eastwood: The Man With No Name Trilogy" contains "A Fist Full Of Dollars," "For A Few Dollars More" and "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly." "A Fist Full Of Dollars" - Clint Eastwood's legendary "Man With No Name" makes his powerful debut in this thrilling, action-packed "new breed of western" (Motion Picture Herald) from the acclaimed director of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" and "For A Few Dollars More." Exploding with blistering shoot-outs, dynamic performances and atmospheric cinematography, it's an undisputed classic of the genre. A mysterious gunman (Eastwood) has just arrived in San Miguel, a grim, dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers are terrorizing the impoverished citizens. A master of the "quick-draw," the stranger soon receives offers of employment from each gang. But his loyalty cannot be bought; he accepts both jobs...and sets in motion a plan to destroy both groups of criminals, pitting one against the other in a series of brilliantly orchestrated set-ups, showdowns and deadly confrontations. "For A Few Dollars More" (In English Only) - "The leading icon of a generation" (Roger Ebert), Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood continues his trademark role as the legendary "Man With No Name" in this second installment of the famous Sergio Leone trilogy. Scripted by Luciano Vincenzoni and featuring Ennio Morricone's haunting musical score, "For A Few Dollars More" is a modern classic - one of the greatest westerns ever made. Eastwood is a keen-eyed, quick-witted bounty hunter on the bloody trail of Indio, the territory's most treacherous bandit. But his ruthless rival, Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef, "High Noon"), is determined to bring Indio in first...dead or alive! Failing to capture their prey - or eliminate each other - the two are left with only one option: team up, or face certain death at the hands of Indio and his band of murderous outlaws. "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" - By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted. "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the "Man With No Name," this time teaming with two gunslingers (Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef) to pursue a cache of $200,000-and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard closeups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since. "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" shatters the western mold in true Clint Eastwood style.
