It's my least favourite of the trilogy. i prefer For a Few Dollars More, then The Good The Bad and The Ugly.

Two Mules for Sister Sara is also very good, with some excellent dry humour.

The Outlaw Josey Wales gets my vote also as one of Eastwood's greats. "High plains drifter" and "A pale rider"were Eastwood learning his craft/experimenting whereas I never quite figured why "The Unforgiven " got all those Oscar nominations other than it was a western when nobody else was making them??

Watched it quarter a century ago, can't remember I watched it. Where my memory gone?:confused:

I remember that bit about the ugly in the bathtub said if you want to shoot, shoot dont talk.

When it reached the point to blow up the bridge, it getting fantasy for Clint with the captain giving them a tour, can't accept this bit.

Sergio Leone changed the face of cinema Westerns with those 3 movies and perhaps his follow up Once Upon a Time in the West. Unfortunately they spawned a huge no of cheaply made Spaghetti Westerns ranging from mediocre to just plain awful. They brought new meaning to the skill of dubbing film dialogue into English. You could spend an entire film trying to find a moment the characters on the screen talked in sync with the soundtrack. Happy Days----Blondie??????????????;)

Wondering why i'd missed all these being on until i read this and noticed the date.

Watching Rocky on ITV4 though. The first one is just superb.
