We’re delighted to launch our latest event series, Great Westerns, celebrating some of the highlights of the classic genre!

Join us at Clifton College’s Pre School Hall on Thursday 9th April for a screening of Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Western masterpiece A Fistful Of Dollars. With an arrival drink included in the ticket and an introductory talk to contextualise the film, it’s a great way to discover or rediscover one of Clint Eastwood’s most iconic performances in his first outing as the ‘Man With No Name’.

For your welcome drink, on the evening you can choose between:

  • a pint of Wickwar Wessex Brewing ale
  • a glass of Averys red/white wine
  • a soft drink

There will also be a cash bar available onsite.

A Fistful Of Dollars

1964 | 15 | 99 MINS

In the American frontier, two rival gangs wrestle for control of the border town of San Miguel and terrorise the citizens. However, their monopoly on the town is swiftly disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious gunslinger, who deliberately antagonises the feud for his own benefit.

STARRING: Clint Eastwood | Marianne Koch | Joseph Egger | John Wells | Wolfgang Lukschy

DIRECTOR: Sergio Leone

PRODUCER: Arrigo Colombo | Giorgio Papi

WRITTEN BY: Based on the film Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa & Ryūzō Kikushima (both uncredited)

THEY SAY: “By definition a landmark — it invented a whole damn sub-genre, set Clint Eastwood upon the road to superstardom, and managed something impossible: it rejuvenated the ailing Western. In short, it was like the arrival of punk rock […] Sergio Leone’s first spaghetti Western is now a deserved classic of the genre it invented. And it’s got Clint. What more could you want?” – Empire, 2000

WE SAY: A masterpiece of the genre, that started the ‘Man With No Name’ trilogy – rounded off by A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly – this classic is essential viewing for both longstanding Western fans and newcomers to the genre alike.
