Ernest Dickerson on

For a Few Dollars More

Released 1967
Distributor United Artists

Sergio Leone’s more elaborate followup to A Fistful of Dollars became one of the seminal Euro westerns, turning the Man with No Name series into a Bond-like tentpole for distributor United Artists and cementing Clint Eastwood’s international stardom. That unforgettable Ennio Morricone score ain’t bad either!
