An anonymous, but deadly man rides into a town torn by war between two factions, the Baxters and the Rojo's. Instead of fleeing or dying, as most other would do, the man schemes to play the two sides off each other, getting rich in the bargain.Written by

Clint Eastwood recalled, "I've never been to Italy. I've never been to Spain. I've never been to Germany. I've never been to any of the countries (coproducing) this film. The worst I can come out of this is a nice little trip. I'll go over there and learn some stuff. I'll see how other people make films in other countries." See more »

Murderers. They had no guns. Murderers! I hope you rot in hell! May you and your brothers die spitting blood! Curse you for this! MURDERERS!

it took me awhile to get around to watching this movie,which is considered a classic by a lot of people.it was a bit too sedate for my tastes,although it wasn't a horrible movie and it probably bears viewing at least twice.it's the first of three movies in the Man With no Name trilogy,directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood as the man with no name.he's also the quiet man with no name.the character doesn't say much unless he needs to.he's brooding and mysterious,and doesn't give too much away about himself.he's also calm and cool,at least on the outside,showing little or no outward emotion. Eastwood is the perfect actor to play this character.though he was in the series Rawhide,it was apparently this series that rocketed him to fame.although i thought there were some slow moment here and there,i didn't hate the film,and i can understand why it has the following and reputation it does.for me,Fistful of Dollars is a 6/10
