Ernest Dickerson on

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Released 1967
Distributor United Artists

Last and biggest of Sergio Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy, this Euro western classic dazzles with gorgeous imagery and sheer scope. Filled with memorable setpieces, none more grand than Eli Wallach’s delirious graveyard run to the pounding strains of Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold”. The term “horse opera” was never so apt.
