The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (Leone, 1966)
Date and TimeWednesday, April 12, 2017
- LSH 174
Our final film of the semester will be the spaghetti western classic The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (Leone, 1966). Here is a brief synopsis of this must-see movie, courtesy of MGM:
"By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic, and stylistically influential western ever mounted, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the 'Man With No Name,' this time teaming with two gunslingers (Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef) to pursue a cache of $200,000 - and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold,hard close-ups, exceptional camera work captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Forging a vibrant and yet detached style of action that had not been seen before, and has never been matched since, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly shatters the western mold in true Clint Eastwood style."
The showing will be on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in Lake Superior Hall, Room 174. Admission is free to all GVSU students.
