About The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Man With No Name and Tuco 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 the Man With No Name learns the identity of the exact grave. Joined by mercenary drifter Sentenza, they cross the desert, each of the desperadoes knowing part of the secret and each focusing his squinty eyes on the $200,000 bounty. [179 min; western; English]

"If you only see one spaghetti Western in your lifetime, this is the one to see." — Sarah Boslaugh, TheArtsStl
"The final scene in the Sad Hill Cemetery is a riveting spectacle, made so by some brilliantly tight editing and underscored by the genius of Ennio Morricone's genre-defining composition." — Tom Meek, Cambridge Day
