This is the retrospective programme of the year. Running from July 3 to 7 at SF World, the MovieMov Italian Film Festival programme will feature seven films by Sergio Leone, the Italian master of the Spaghetti Western genre.
With grungy gunslingers wandering the border towns fighting bandits and looking for legendary treasure, the Spaghetti Western _ so-called because the cowboy films are made by Italians _ has become a solid sub-genre in cinematic history, and Leone is the pioneer.
The seven films include The Colossus Of Rhodes (1961), A Fistful Of Dollars (1964, with Clint Eastwood as Joe the journeyman); For A Few Dollars More (1965, Eastwood again); The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1966, Eastwood again); Once Upon A Time In The West (1968, with Henry Fonda and Claudia Cardinale); A Fistful Of Dynamite (1971) and Once Upon A Time In America (1984, with Robert DeNiro).
