A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

directed by Sergio Leone starring Clint Eastwood, Marianne Koch, Gian Maria Volonté in Italian, Spanish with English subtitles

In a story borrowed from Kurosawa’s Yojimbo, an amoral wanderer-with-no-name finds himself on both sides of a war between two families in a Mexican town. This classic created the worldwide craze for European westerns, turned Eastwood into an iconic antihero, and introduced movie lovers to the talents of director Sergio Leone and composer Ennio Morricone.

The Hellbenders (1967)

directed by Sergio Corbucci starring Joseph Cotten, Norma Bengell, Al Mulock in Italian with English subtitles

In this pitiless vision of the old west, former Confederate Colonel Jonas (Joseph Cotten) travels into hostile Southwestern territory, ostensibly to bury the coffin that holds his dead son. However, the pine box actually contains a huge cache of stolen money, which Jonas plans to use to revive the Confederacy and begin another war between the states. Accompanied by his three sons and a hired “widow,” Jonas proceeds with his traitorous scheme, not anticipating the trouble he’ll face from Mexican banditos, Indians, Union soldiers, and his own greedy offspring.

The Big Gundown (1966)

Taking on what he hopes will be one of his last manhunts, Corbett sets out with a posse to find the Mexican peasant Manuel “Chuchillo” Sanchez (Tomas Milian), a man wanted for the murder of a child.

Death Rides a Horse (1967)

directed by Giulio Petroni starring Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, Mario Brega in Italian with English subtitles

A young boy witnesses the brutal slaughter of his parents by bandits and grows up into a vengeful young man (John Philip Law). Relentlessly pursuing the killers, the man enlists help from an outlaw (Lee Van Cleef), a veteran gunslinger who hides his own dark past. Classically told and positively gripping, this violent European oater features a pounding, percussive score by Ennio Morricone.

The Grand Duel (1972)

directed by Giancarlo Santi starring Lee Van Cleef, Alberto Dentice, Jess Hahn in Italian with English subtitles

After their powerful father is brutally murdered, the Saxon Brothers hire a group of bounty hunters to bring suspected killer Philipp Wermeer to justice. But when grizzled Sheriff Clayton (Lee Van Cleef) saves the fugitive Philipp’s life, the two team up and set out to confront the Saxons and reveal the shocking truth about who really killed The Patriarch. Newly transferred from the original Italian negative and fully restored!

The Mercenary (1968)

directed by Sergio Corbucci starring Franco Nero, Jack Palance, Tony Musante in Italian with English subtitles

A group of Mexican revolutionaries hire a Polish gun-for-hire (Spaghetti Western superstar Franco Nero) to assist in their cause, but they meet stiff resistance by a well-dressed and brutal government agent (Jack Palance). Features a fantastic score by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai, which was put to use again in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. One of the seminal spaghetti westerns. Brand new 35mm print!

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (1966)

directed by Sergio Leone starring Eli Wallach, Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef in Italian with English subtitles

Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach are the title triumvirate — double crossing rivals in a Civil War-era odyssey for a treasure in hidden gold. Encountering a group of dying soldiers, each of the desperadoes learns but one facet of the secret bounty, each man focusing his squinty eyes on the $200,000 bounty. Leone’s final chapter in his “Dollars” trilogy has been magnificently restored to its original Italian running time.

Sabata (1969)

directed by Gianfranco Parolini starring Lee Van Cleef, William Berger, Ignazio Spalla in English, Italian with English subtitles

After an acrobatic bank robbery leaves a town without a safe, the mysterious Sabata (Lee Van Cleef) lends his services in recovery of the vault. Things quickly escalate into to blackmail and gunplay, involving politically powerful criminal boss Stengel. Aided by string-playing Banjo, mute acrobat Alleycat, and alcoholic Civil War vet Carrincha, Sabata sets out with his comic book posse to extort Stengel for everything he’s worth. Filled with wild stunts, quick zooms, and whip pans, Sabata is one of the most energetic and entertaining Spaghetti Westerns around!

A Fistful of Dynamite, a.k.a., Duck, You Sucker! (1971)

directed by Sergio Leone starring Rod Steiger, James Coburn, Romolo Valli in Italian, Spanish with English subtitles

The results are explosive when self-exiled IRA explosives specialist John Mallory (James Coburn) teams up with Mexican peasant-turned-revolutionary (Rod Steiger) to knock over the Mesa Verde bank…with dynamite. What started out as a nice joint venture to get rich, quickly turns into an operation for the revolutionary cause, and the two are drawn into a fight against the Mexican army, bearing painful similarities to Mallory’s IRA past.
