Fistful of Dollars, A ( Per un pugno di dollari ) 
A Fistful of Dollars review
3/4 stars

One of the pioneers of the genre with stylish wardrobe and skillful direction. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly still stands out for this critic. The nameless man befriends the tavern keeper, and comes upon the coffin-maker while a turf war ensues between two rival gangs (namely Rojo brothers and sheriff Baxter and his men) and the coffin-maker is the only man who is making any money. Characters were likable and action sequences bountiful for western fanatics. Score was obviously well utilized and the pacing really effective. Some memorable quotes: "A man's life in these parts often depends on a mere scrap of information." and "When a man's got money in his pocket, he begins to appreciate peace." Fascinating how most scenes are managed just through gestures and close-ups. A Fistful of Dollars' premise may have been illegally plagiarized, it's still entertaining thrilling western with a touch of humor and friendships based on trust. A definite classic that can be viewed repeatedly.
