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.
Schedule of events for Sunday April 29, 2018:
Clint Eastwood’s final film with Leone ironically produced some of their finest work during a period deteriorating relations. Eastwood stars as Blondie who, in competition with two equally dangerous and resourceful men, is after a stash of stolen Confederate gold. The resulting film is surely one of the greatest westerns ever made.
SUN 29, APR, 18:30 “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”
