>The Magnificent Seven
Like a translation of a translation back into the original language, The Magnificent Seven is a Western version of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, itself heavily influenced by the Westerns of John Ford. When farmers turn to Brynner for help defending their village, he assembles his band of seven (Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn among them) and they ride out across the widescreen landscape accompanied by Elmer Bernstein's irrepressible theme.

>For a Few Dollars More
A favourite of Leone fans, For a Few Dollars More is his first mature film, a major showcase for Leone's masterful use of the human face as an expressive object, explored through bold close-ups. He turned to the iconic myths of the American West, and of Hollywood cinema, to fashion a fever dream of masculinity and violence. Cast as rival 'bounty killers', Eastwood and Van Cleef are bonded into a laconic partnership, and possible friendship, when they join forces to capture the notorious bandit, 'El Indio'.
