The beginnings of Eastwood speak of destiny and the unexpected places where it can hide. In 1964, an unknown actor from California accepts the proposal of an Italian film director to make a western with locations in Spain. When seeing his actor for the first time, Sergio Leone knew that he was the ideal one. Today's unquestionable North American icon had appeared for several years in a television series and had been rejected by the big studios. Eastwood took over the strange protagonist of “For a Fistful of Dollars” after several others rejected the project because of the quality of the script or due to economic conditions. The filming, carried out between spring and summer, was peppered with problems and defaults, but only a few months later the film was released in Italy and from the outset became a great success. In 1965 and 1966, the actor returned to make two more films with Leone. His fate had changed: "After the westerns I made in Spain I suddenly became Clint Eastwood." This is the story and the origin of his legend.
