Example text

It is impossible’. They could never have surpassed the Dollars trilogy, especially The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, their masterpiece. Hang ’Em High (1968) Following his success as the ‘Man with No Name’, Eastwood said ‘Arrivederci Roma’ and returned to the US, had a shave and gained a name, as Jed Cooper in Hang ’Em High, which straddled the badlands between spaghetti and Hollywood westerns. Eastwood was initially approached to star in the Hollywood western Mackenna’s Gold (1968), but he turned it down and Gregory Peck eventually took the treasure-hunting role – an adventurer seeking fabled Apache gold in the Canyon Del’Oro.

Rabbit is eventually shot dead (the bullet passing through a Bible in his pocket) – but not before confessing that he went to town to kill Judd deliberately, in revenge for his own wife’s murder. The good cast included Harry Dean Stanton and Dan Duryea, as the eerie, harmonica-playing ‘prophet’. By this point in the series, Eastwood’s close friend and stunt double William ‘Bill’ Thompkins had joined the regular cast, as gummy drover ‘Toothless’. For ‘The Race’, the opening episode of the 1964–65 season, the title sequence was altered again, with the three leads now ‘legends of the west’ bronze sculptures in the style of Frederic Remington – Favor lassos a steer, Rowdy leaps into the saddle and Wishbone lashes the chuck wagon.

In For a Few, Eastwood’s hero is more humorous, he even smiles occasionally, and has a great final punchline. As he loads the bandits’ corpses into a cart to take back to El Paso, his bounty haul calculations fall short of expectations and he realises he’s one villain short. At that moment Manco spins around and shoots outlaw Groggy, who is about to plug him in the back. ’; ‘No old man’, answers Manco, ‘Thought I was having trouble with my adding – it’s all right now’. It is Van Cleef’s Colonel Mortimer, the Bible-reading ‘Reverend’, and his tracking of Indio, that drives the fi lm.
