From Monday 2 April – Monday 30 April, BFI Southbank will celebrate one of the undisputed masters of cinema, Sergio Leone. While they may not have been the first spaghetti westerns, Leone's Dollars trilogy of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) are certainly the best
known – they paved the way for Clint Eastwood to break Europe and for Leone to have an enduring influence on cinema. As part of the season, A Fistful of Dollars will screen on extended run from Friday 13 April, when it is re-released in selected cinemas by Park Circus. The season will include screenings of all of Leone’s features, as well as a talk from Leone biographer Sir Christopher Frayling on Friday 6 April.
Schedule of events for Friday April 6, 2018:
FRI 6 APR, 18:00 – TALK: Sir Christopher Frayling on Sergio Leone’s Very Italian Western
FRI 6 APR, 19:50 – SCREENING – INTRO: Once Upon a Time in the West (Sergio Leone
1968) / Onstage: Sergio Leone biographer Sir Christopher Frayling
