The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, directed by Sergio Leone, is the 3rd in the Man with No Name Clint Eastwood trilogy. It's a prequel of sorts and shows where he got that great poncho. I had somehow missed this one, so it was the first time to watch it for both The Younger Son and me. The Elder Son came in partway through the film, and his question was why I was laughing through such a serious film. Hmmm... I just didn't see it as such a serious film. The Younger Son didn't care for it at all, describing certain scenes as "interminable". I have to agree some of the scenes did go on. And on. But I enjoyed it anyway.
Images Journal considers it one of the 30 great westerns.
