When the husband of Jill McBain is killed by ruthless outlaws in the old West, she hires two guns of her own to get revenge.
Release Date: 30-JAN-2007
Media Type: DVD
The so-called spaghetti Western achieved its apotheosis in Sergio Leone's magnificently mythic (and utterly outlandish) Once upon a Time in the West. After a series of international hits starring Clint Eastwood (from A Fistful of Dollars to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly), Leone outdid himself with this spectacular, larger-than-life, horse-operatic epic about how the West was won. (And make no mistake: this is the wide, wide West, folks--so it should be seen in widescreen.) The unholy trinity of Italian cinema--Leone, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Dario Argento--concocted the story about a woman (Claudia Cardinale) hanging onto her land in hopes that the transcontinental railroad would reach her before a steely-eyed, black-hearted killer (Fonda) does. (The film's advertising slogan was: "There were three men in her life. One to take her ... one to love her ... and one to kill her.") Meanwhile, Leone shoots his stars' faces as if they were expansive Western landscapes, and their towering bodies as if they were looming rock formations in John Ford's Monument Valley. --Jim EmersonSee all Product description

The scenery is amazing, watching this Blu-ray on wide screen is just like being at the theater. Don't forget to lay in a supply of popcorn and soft drinks!
The faces... that's what you'll remember... shot in razor sharp focus at close range... you'll be counting hairs in their beards! There are more close up face shots in this movie than in anything I've ever seen.
The story is a bit confusing, no one seems to know why anyone is doing the things they do, you'll be in deep mystery, but don't worry, all is explained in the end. It's a very unexpected ending, but that's how the entire movie goes... suspense and mystery...
You've GOT to see this movie!
Henry Fonda is the main attraction
