About Once Upon a Time in the West

This 1968 epic Spaghetti Western is a masterpiece in its own right and is often referred to by film buffs as the greatest film ever made.

Written and directed by Sergio Leone, this film was the first of the iconic ‘Once upon a time…’ trilogy.  These were the last films directed by Leone, the father of the Spaghetti Western genre at the peak of his profession.

The film follows a mysterious stranger with a harmonica as he joins forces with a notorious desperado to protect a beautiful widow from a ruthless assassin working for the railroad. Famously snobbed by Clint Eastwood, the film’s cast includes Henry Fonda, Charles Bronson and Claudia Cardinale, however its full cast and crew list is so extensive that the end credits are a whopping 10 minutes long!

Trivia bite: Sergio made over 100 references in the script to the films that influenced his career the most – see if you can spot them all!
