The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
1966 -- Rated Mature
Director: Sergio Leone
Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach, Lee Van Cleef

The last in the Dollars trilogy, GBU is by far the best of the three and while the subsequent film Once Upon A Time In The West is by far a superior film, GBU is quite excellent in its own right. What sets GBU apart from it's predecessors is the haunting Ennio Morricone score. Wallach's turn as the savage Mexican bandit Tuco, complete with a gravelly stereotypical accent, is easily Wallach's best work.
