Editor's Note
Blondie (Clint Eastwood) and Tuco (Eli Wallach) are gunmen who admire each other professionally but dislike each other personally. Encountering a group of dying soldiers, Tuco learns the location of the graveyard where a Confederate treasure is buried, while Blondie learns the identity of the exact grave. Joined by mercenary drifter Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef), they cross the desert, each of the desperadoes knowing half the secret and each focusing his squinty eyes on the $200,000 bounty.

In a classic that puts style above substance, Italian director Sergio Leone uses vivid Cinemascope imagery to depict a bleak and bloody American West in this final installment of his collaboration with Clint Eastwood in the Man with No Name Trilogy. A prototype for the so-called Spaghetti Western genre, the film solidified Eastwood's position as a major international star with his stoic, brooding presence. Cinematographer Tonino Delli Colli's stunning visuals are a match for the vivacious Ennio Morricone score, one of the most recognizable in all of cinema. Although the film was not released in the United States until 1967, it was produced and released internationally in 1966.

Reel.com 10 of 10
Leone's final collaboration with Clint Eastwood, after A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More is one of the director's greatest films, combining Tonino Delli Colli's glorious cinematography, which alternates Leone's trademark tight close-ups with wide shots of lonely desert vistas, Ennio Morricone's haunting and hugely influential score of jangling guitars and howling "coyotes," and a story that begins from the smallest seed of greed and blossoms into a full-scale Civil War epic. It is a film that blends Leone's affection for the freedom represented by the myth of the American West, his knowledge of both art and history, and a larger-than-life artistic sensibility that is operatic in its proportions. This is not just one of the great Westerns of all times, but one of the great films...The movie is a series of unforgettable images: Blondie's forced march across the sweltering desert, prodded on by a sneering, horseback-riding Tuco, his own face protected from the sun by a dainty pink parasol...Individually, the scenes are sublime. Taken together, they add up to something extraordinary. - Pam Grady

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Here is the third of the Dollar Westerns, so named after the first two ("A Fistful of Dollars" and "For a Few Dollars More"). All three have been tremendously popular and, curiously enough, all three have been pretty good..."The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" has only the thinnest of plots: Three criminals are searching for a gold shipment during the Civil War. But the plot hardly matters, because the method of director Sergio Leone is to create a series of short, self-contained scenes...There is a fine scene in which Leone's style seems to follow Hitchcock's. Eastwood is shown in his hotel room, taking apart his pistol to clean it. Horse-drawn cannons are being pulled down the street. Their rumble covers the clink of the spurs of three hired killers, coming upstairs to Eastwood's room. Leone cuts back and forth: the spurs, the cannons, Eastwood's pistol being put back together. Then he releases the suspense with split-second timing. Then, like Hitchcock, he ends the scene with an ironic, unexpected twist..."The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is probably 30 minutes too long, but it's filled with good stuff like that for those who treasure Westerns. - Roger Ebert
