A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

This short cigar belongs to a man with no name. This long gun belongs to a man with no name. This poncho belongs to a man with no name. He's going to trigger a whole new style in adventure.


A wandering gunfighter plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.

Drifter gunman, Joe (Clint Eastwood), arrives in the Mexican village of San Miguel at the border of the United States of America, and befriends the owner of the local bar, Silvanito. Joe discovers that the town is dominated by two gangster lords: John Baxter (Wolfgang Lukschy) and the cruel Ramón Rojo (Gian Maria Volontè). When Joe kills four men of Baxter's gang, he is hired by Ramón's brother, Esteban Rojo (Sieghardt Rupp), to join their gang. However, Joe decides to work for both sides, playing one side against the other. - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Flat broke, a taciturn, amoral sharp-shooter rides into the dusty, sun-bleached border town of San Miguel, where everyone is either rich or dead. Torn apart by two feuding families who fight for control, the corrupt Baxters and the murderous Rojos, the sleepy town provides the perfect opportunity for profit. And, before long, the nameless stranger embarks on a dangerous mission to play each gang off against one another in a deadly battle of wits. Of course, all eyes are set on the grand prize. How far is a man willing to go for a fistful of dollars? - Nick Riganas
