Films of Sergio Leone

Leone is best know for his spaghetti westerns. A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly all form part of his Man With No Name trilogy. His westerns reinvigorated the genre and helped establish Clint Eastwood as an acting phenomenon. Once Upon A Time In The West is rated as the second best western ever made and its cinematography and epic soundtrack make it a worthwhile watch. In a major departure from his earlier work, Leone made Once Upon A Time In America. This epic movie about Jewish Gangsters easily rivals Scarface and The Godfather Trilogy for the title of best mob movie. Below you can watch a scene he directed for A Genius, Two Partners and a Dupe, a documentary on Leone's Westerns and one on Once Upon A Time In America.
