“The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is one of the greatest spaghetti westerns ever made!

 
This Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone movie is the last of the famous spaghetti western trilogy known as “The Man With No Name” series.
 
If you ask fans of spaghetti westerns which movie is the greatest spaghetti western ever made, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t mention “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” You’ll often find this film near the top of best western movie lists and critic’s lists of great cowboy films.
 
This spaghetti western is about three men, all motivated by greed. There’s “The Good” named Blondie (Clint Eastwood), “The Bad” named Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef) and “The Ugly” named Tuco (Eli Wallach).
 
All three men are despicable in their own way and none of them trust each other, but they need to work together in order to find a stash of gold hidden during the Civil War in a cemetery. No man knows all the details about where the $200,000 has been buried, so they must rely on each other. The Ugly knows the name of the cemetery where the gold is hidden. The Good knows the name on grave where it is buried. The Bad doesn’t know any details but has promised to kill the other two if they don’t share the fortune with him.
 
Against the backdrop of the raging Civil War the three cold-blooded men traverse the desert in hopes of finding the fortune.
 
Will they all survive? Or will one of them be able to outwit the others and keep the gold for himself?
 
With its thumping music score by Italian composer Ennio Morricone, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is a memorable film that is sure to captivate spaghetti western fans.
 

 
• “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” was the third spaghetti western movie that film director Sergio Leone made with actor Clint Eastwood. The other two famous spaghetti westerns that they made together were:

Fistful of Dollars

For a Few Dollars More

These three Italian westerns became so famous that they eventually became known as “The Man with No Name Trilogy.”

 
• “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” was the last western movie that Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone made together. Apparently, their relationship became very strained while Clint Eastwood was doing voiceovers for the film in post-production. Director Leone wanted to make changes to the original script that was used to shoot the movie, while Eastwood wanted to stick as close as possible to the original script. The tension between them became so great that they never worked together again.
 
• The cast for “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” was literally from around the world. The only real English speakers were the three main stars – Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach. For the Italian release of the movie, these three main star’s voices were dubbed in Italian. For the American release of the film, the other actor’s voices in the western were dubbed into English.
