"First-class western bravado!" - The New York Times
Clint Eastwood's legendary "Man With No Name" makes his powerful debut in this thrilling, action-packed "new breed of western" (Motion Picture Herald) from the acclaimed director of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More. Exploding with blistering shoot-outs, dynamic performances and atmospheric cinematography, it's an undisputed classic of the genre.
A mysterious gunman has just arrived in San Miguel, a grim, dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers are terrorizing the impoverished citizens. A master of the "quick-draw," the stranger soon receives offers of employment from each gang. But his loyalty cannot be bought; he accepts both jobs…and sets in motion a plan to destroy both jobs…and sets in motion a plan to destroy both groups of criminals, pitting one against the other in a series of brilliantly orchestrated set-ups, showdowns and deadly confrontations.

Trivia: Sergio Leone
was not keen on using composer Ennio Morricone
for this film. He simply had not been impressed with the scores that Morricone had done in the past for other directors. The initial scoring made Leone quickly set aside any reservations. Leone and Morricone would develop a close working relationship that would last through all of Leone's future films. (more) Goofs:
