For a Fistful of Dollars

Tonight we, members of the Wednesday Movie club (Dnipro Window on America center, Ukraine) watched a spaghetti western film A Fistful of Dollars (1964).
A Fistful of Dollars (Italian: Per un pugno di dollari, lit. "For a Fistful of Dollars"), titled on-screen as Fistful of Dollars, is a 1964 spaghetti western film directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood in his first leading role.
A Fistful of Dollars was filmed on a low budget (reported to be $200,000), and Eastwood was paid $15,000 for his role. Released in Italy in 1964, and then in the United States in 1967, it initiated the popularity of the spaghetti western film genre.
Plot: A wandering gunfighter plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.
As few spaghetti westerns had yet been released in the United States, many of the European cast and crew took on American-sounding stage names.
WOA’s patrons enjoyed the film and the discussion that followed. We hope that movie club members were inspired to come again to improve their English.
Participants number – 8 persons.
