I was sixteen when this film came out and I still enjoy it so very much. I just finished watching it again for at least the thousands time. I still have the VCR version and CD. It will always be my favorite and the best one of all times. Sorry to hear that the famous song writer for this movie died. May God have a good places in heaven for him.

I watched this move way back and liked it. After rewatching it recently, I like it more. Lots have movies have tried to copy and are cliches of it. Eli Wallach plays a great character in this movie.

The same here; I will never stop watching it! It is one of a kind!

@John what do you mean awful? This is one of the best films/trilogy ever filmed! It’s a byproduct: with great direction of screen writers and music composers ever made.

Awful. Cartoon cowboy movie. Every cliche in the book.

Amazing how these stories were written at that time and still remain impactful even today. Excellent trilogy

I couldn't agree more... the dollars series were fantastic, but GBU ( uncut version) was an inspiration of my childhood; the music and cinematography make the storyline complete in this Leon masterpiece. Clint, Eli, and Lee's dramatic blend of acting make this film one of the finest western action films on screen!

Saw this at age 9 in 1969 in a drive in in Alamogordo New Mexico. My father was stationed at Holloman AFB. The greatest trilogy ever!

Never ages, watch it every time its on tv. The music score cant be beaten.

I saw this movie when I was twelve in Hong Kong ,since then I am a royal supporter to Clint until today.
The best western movie ever made.

LL Taylor 2021-05-08 21:54:14

I saw the movie four times at the drive in before I ever watched it on tv. The best westerns ever made.

Doug 2021-03-21 02:50:20

Elegiac in every way, spectacular cinematography, engrossing scenery, and the best movie soundtrack ever created. And this Western was dreamed up by Italians no less! It is a work of art and my favorite movie of all time. Bravissimo!

Guest 2021-02-02 02:39:35

A very deep plot actually

Someone said "Every cliche in the book", em, no. The cliches came after this, this is where they came from, It was the original.

I saw it in Athens, Greece in 1967, and was blown away. I watch it over and over, and am still impressed with it and learn something new each time. The sound effects, the incredible music , the realistic setting, the cinematography, and the amazing acting have left an indelible mark. My favorite of the three is The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Tuco being one of my favorite characters of all time. Ironically, I live in Arizona now.
