The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Part of See It Big! (Past Programs)
Friday, February 10, 2012, 7:00 p.m.

Dir. Sergio Leone. 1966, 161 mins.

With Eli Wallach, Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef. In the hands of Italian movie master Sergio Leone, a simple tale of buried treasure becomes a grand, immensely stylish western adventure. The final title in the director’s Dollars Trilogy is a brutally brilliant bit of hyperbolic filmmaking, featuring outsized performances by an iconically growly Clint Eastwood as a mysterious gunman (the “good”), Lee Van Cleef as the sadistic Angel Eyes (the “bad”), and Eli Wallach as a crafty bandit sidekick (the “ugly”).

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students) and includes admission to the Museum's galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
