Sergio Leone's classic 1966 western THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (Il BUONO, IL BRUTTO, IL CATTIVO) is for the first time in the UK, being screened in a fully restored, extended cut version.
The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) and Tuco (Eli Wallach) are gunmen who admire each other professionally, but dislike each other personally. Encountering a group of dying soldiers, Tuco learns the location of the graveyard where a Confederate treasure is buried, while the Man With No Name learns the identity of the exact grave. Joined by mercenary drifter Sentenza (Lee Van Cleef), they cross the desert, each of the desperadoes knowing part of the secret and each focusing his squinty eyes on the $200 000 bounty.
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY will be opening from 1 August at BFI Southbank, London (as part of a Clint Eastwood season), Filmhouse Edinburgh and key cities.
