How the West was Changed: Sergio Leone’s DOLLARS Trilogy
From 1964 to 1966. Italian director Sergio Leone produced three films that changed the face of the traditional Hollywood western. A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY revolutionised an ageing genre with their emphasis on violence, raucous electric musical scores, and a new kind of anti-hero, launching Clint Eastwood as an international movie star.
With the aid of extracts, we will explore how Leone’s trilogy reinterpreted the western genre. We will trace the films' history and development. from their beginnings to their transformation of not only the western but also other forms of world cinema.
This course will run over six weeks, every Monday from 28 January to 4 March 2013, 19.00 - 21.00.
Tickets for the course are £70 / £65 Concessions / £60 Members, including admission to any feature films screened.
Course leader: Graham Rinaldi.
