Episode 85: For a Few Dollars More (1965)

For this week’s podcast, The Bit Players once again venture into Sergio Leone’s The Man with No Name trilogy, For a Few Dollars More. The guys find similar issues to A Fistful of Dollars, wondering if Leone’s seeming directorial incompetence would fly today, as well as beginning to question whether one another watched the movie at all. Whether you find the squint-heavy film amateurish or not, it’s hard to deny the raw promise that the first two Man with No Name films offered in the famous trio of Leone, Clint Eastwood, and Ennio Morricone. There’s a lot of things you can say about For a Few Dollars More, but it not being fun sure isn’t one of them.
