For a Few Dollars More
Sergio Leone, 1965, 132 min.
The Great Silence
Sergio Corbucci, 1968, 105 min.

The middle child in Leone's "Dollar Trilogy," For a Few Dollars More contains a more ambitious treatment of character, tone, and style than its predecessor, Fistful of Dollars, and sets the tone for the sheer success of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Bounty hunter, or The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood), teams up with Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) to bring a drugged and deranged bandit known as El Indio (Volonte) to justice. Operatic overtones by composer Ennio Morricone set the tone for spaghetti Westerns to follow. In The Great Silence—Corbucci's career masterpiece—Silence, a mute gunslinger, is hired by a woman outlaw to take down the unscrupulous Loco, a bounty hunter played by Klaus Kinski. Set against the snow drenched hills of Utah during the great blizzard of 1899, the film joins social political commentary with contemporary Western history in a poignant narrative. The Great Silence is seen as a critical response to the uncritical (and, some say, naïve) treatment both of bounty hunters and "the law" in For a Few Dollars More.

$5 general, students, and seniors. Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
