Kino Lorber is set to release two complete 4K restorations of Sergio Leone’s classic westerns, A Fistful of Dollars & For a Few Dollars More late 2017. Both sourced from 4K restorations back in 2014. We’ve been patiently waiting for a release of these two classic westerns since the 2014 remastered release of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
A Fistful of Dollars
Clint Eastwood’s legendary “Man With No Name” makes his powerful debut in this thrilling, action-packed “new breed of western” (Motion Picture Herald) from the acclaimed director of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More. Exploding with blistering shoot-outs, dynamic performances and atmospheric cinematography, it’s an undisputed classic of the genre.
A mysterious gunman has just arrived in San Miguel, a grim, dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers are terrorizing the impoverished citizens. A master of the “quick-draw,” the stranger soon receives offers of employment from each gang. But his loyalty cannot be bought; he accepts both jobs…and sets in motion a plan to destroy both jobs…and sets in motion a plan to destroy both groups of criminals, pitting one against the other in a series of brilliantly orchestrated set-ups, showdowns and deadly confrontations.
For a Few Dollars More
Eastwood is a keen-eyed, quick-witted bounty hunter on the bloody trail of Indio, the territory’s most treacherous bandit. But his ruthless rival, Colonel Mortimer, is determined to bring Indio in first…dead or alive! Failing to capture their prey–or eliminate each other – the two are left with only one option: team up, or face certain death at the hands of Indio and his band of murderous outlaws.
Stay tuned for more upcoming news on a set release date.
