I selected I like all of them (because I do), but my three favorites (in no order) are For A Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, and Once Upon A Time In America.

I had the good luck to be able to see the restored/remastered The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly when it played in Los Angeles at the Nuart. Cannot wait for these restorations to get a DVD release. Unfortunately, they're going to remaster Duck, You Sucker! before For A Few Dollars More, which is odd to me, since the two other dollars films are done. Can't believe I'm going to have to wait several more years before a decent version of For A Few Dollars More is available on DVD.

1. My Name is Nobody, he ghost directed and it stars Terence Hill and Henry Fonda, and any spagehtti fan has to love that combination

2. For a Few Dollars More, I credit this board for turning me onto this one, definately an underrated classic, and just a hair better than....

3. The Good, the Bad and The Ugly, absolutely my favorite character movie of all time, I could watch this forever and never get bored

4. All the rest, it was truly a remarkable career, and he never gave the impression he was directing to pay the bills, and that kept the quality on such a high level.

Glad to see someone note this highly underrated film. I would have listed it as one of my favorites, but have always been reserved as to call it a true Leone film. Terence Hill and Henry Fonda do a fantastic job in this movie and Leone's style shines through in this (near) masterpiece.

I don't have a favorite, but I've enjoyed most of the movies I've seen from him.

Leone is my favorite director, because he was the most consistent, imo. I'd rank them in this order:

1. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (*****)
2. Once Upon a Time in the West (*****)
3. Once Upon a Time in America (****1/2)
4. Duck, You Sucker! (****1/2)
5. For a Few Dollars More (****1/2)
6. A Fistful of Dollars (****)

I had the pleasure of seeing Duck, You Sucker! on the big screen at film forum last month.

I'm usually not this indecisive .... but this is a tough call. I guess a toss-up between GBU and OUATIA.

One of my favorite directors. Out of that list, the only one I haven't seen is Collosus Of Rhodes. I love the rest of them, though. They all have a place in my list of favorite movies of all time. I choose Once Upon A Time In The West as the best. The best constructed and most emotionally poignant western ever. I almost love The Good, The Bad & The Ugly just as much, though. When I was around 14, I saw this movie, and my whole perspective on film changed at that point. I had enjoyed movies up until that point, but I never knew that such an expertly crafted film could have such a powerful affect on me. Thus, Leone can be credited with starting my love of film. That's the highest compliment I can give him.

There is a R1 release in Canada.

Just checked Amazon.com and they have it for sale, albeit at an exhorbitant price.


As for the poll, I picked Good, Bad and Ugly.

There are several apparently reputable dealers offering this sealed on eBay in the $20.00 range. If you are a spaghetti, Terence Hill or serious Leone fan(or all three) I highly recommend it, especially at that price. It's not like you couldn't throw it back on eBay and recoup your investment if it's not your cup of tea.
