Description

Second of Sergio Leone and Eastwood's "Spaghetti Westerns" and "Dollar" trilogy (A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS being the first and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY the last). The Man With No Name (Eastwood) teams up with a gunslinger (Van Cleef) in order to extract reward money from Volonte, a vicious bandit. There is little doubt to Eastwood's financial intentions in the hunt but Van Cleef seems to be driven by something a bit deeper. A series of flashbacks (which would become a Leone signature device) provides the background for Van Cleef's anger and desire for revenge. Morricone's score combined with Leone's trademark long and lingering shots bring the viewer ever closer to the human side of the Man With No Name.

Synopsis
In the second film in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Western trilogy (A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS being the first and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY the last), the Man with No Name (Clint Eastwood) teams up with gunslinger Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) in order to extract reward money from Indio (Gian Maria Volonte), a mean and vicious bandit. There is little doubt as to No Name's financial intentions in the hunt, but Mortimer seems to be driven by something a bit deeper. A series of flashbacks (which would become a Leone signature device) provides the background for Colonel Mortimer's anger and desire for revenge. Morricone's score combined with Leone's trademark long and lingering shots bring the viewer ever closer to the human side of the Man with No Name. Although the film was not released in the United States until 1967, it was produced and released internationally in 1965.
Notes
Theatrical Release: May 1967 (USA)

Director Sergio Leone's first choice for the role of Colonel Mortimer was Lee Marvin.

FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE was Lee Van Cleef's first film to follow a break from acting due to illness.

In addition to an increased salary and a percentage of the film's profits, Clint Eastwood also received a Ferrari for his work on FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE.

Sight and Sound
"[The film] displays greater assurance than FISTFUL, with a more ambitious narrative structure and a strain of self-parodic humour."
Matthew Leyland (1 Jun 2005, p.83)
