Once Upon A Time In The West

1968 / 164min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: SERGIO LEONE

CAST: CLAUDIA CARDINALE, CHARLES BRONSON, HENRY FONDA, JASON ROBARDS, GABRIELE FERZETTI

Along with dream team collaborators Leone and Bernardo Bertolucci, Argento is credited with the story for this epic oater, a sort of link between the established spaghetti western and the rising giallo, both genres defined by their elaborate and sometimes insanely involved set pieces. Honest Henry Fonda goes bad—very bad— as a railroad baron’s hired gun, facing off against Bronson’s lethal loner Harmonica, in the soaring, musically-composed movie that really earns the label of “horse opera.”

Once Upon A Time In The West is screening as part of the Dario Argento series.
