Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood's golden age.
Similar to the DiCaprio character in this film, actor/director Clint Eastwood early in his career starred in a black and white TV cowboy series, Rawhide (1959) (playing 'Rowdy Yates'), when on nearing its close (1964) went on to achieve major fame through starring in three of Italian director Sergio Leone's 'Dollars' trilogy films: director of this film, Tarantino has oft stated his admiration for Leone's film-making.
