The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly. My Favorite Movie!

YOU'VE GOT TO WATCH IT SEVERAL TIMES to truly appreciate all the 'little elements' that put this '66 western in a class by itself.

 

 The drunken Union Army captain "Can you keep me alive a little while longer, Doc?  I'm expecting good news."...just before he gets to hear the bridge, the bridge so many under his command have wasted their lives for, get blown to bits.... that no man die for it again.

 

The ever-so-young Confederate soldier who had crawled to lie down @ the Altar of the bombed out church, there to pass away.

 

Eastwood finds him, covers him with his overcoat for a blanket, gives him a puff off his cigar for his last breath.  Leaves his overcoat behind, covering the Deceased, to keep him warm on his way to the Maker;

 

a tribute to Young Life cut down by the Horrors of War far too soon..

 

And the score.

 

The incredible score touches our hearts, it conveys to us the very essence of the Old West, and of the people in it.

 

Building Our Country, they were.

 

Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Eli Wallach.

 

They are

 

the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.  

 

Without parallell for evermore in Cinematography.
