The Good, the Bad and the Ugly script
Synopsis: A bounty hunting scam joins two men in an uneasy alliance against a third in a race to find a fortune in gold buried in a remote cemetery.

Yeah, $ .

¡ Hijo de puta que te parió!

You'll pay for this!

I hope you end up in a graveyard...

...with the cholera, and the rabies, and the plague!

Cut me loose! Cut me loose, you filthy bastard!

Put me down!

I hope your mother ends up in a two-dollar whorehouse!

Cut me loose! Cut me loose!

You can still save yourself.

Let me go, and I'll pardon you.

Let me go!

I feel sick. The blood is rushing...

I'm dry.

Agua! Water!

You swine! You son of a bitch!

You're brave with a man who's tied up!

Come back!

Come back and fight!

You bastard!

Who the hell is that?

One bastard goes in, another comes out.

Cut it out! Cut it out!

I'm an honest farmer! I'm innocent of any...

So, you're an honest farmer.

You recognize this man?

Yeah, it's you!

Who says so? You can't even read.

Roll it up. Roll it up!

I'll give you a good idea where you can put it.

To hell with all you sheriffs and deputies and all who gave birth to you!

Hey, everybody, look! Look! He's giving him the filthy money!


You've sold my hide!

But you won't enjoy any of that money, not a penny.

If there's justice, that money will go to the undertakers!

Every penny of it. You know who you are?

Sergio Leone

Sergio Leone was virtually born into the cinema - he was the son of Roberto Roberti (A.K.A. Vincenzo Leone), one of Italy's cinema pioneers, and actress Bice Valerian. Leone entered films in his late teens, working as an assistant director to both Italian directors and U.S. directors working in Italy (usually making Biblical and Roman epics, much in vogue at the time). Towards the end of the 1950s he started writing screenplays, and began directing after taking over The Last Days of Pompeii (1959) in mid-shoot after its original director fell ill. His first solo feature, The Colossus of Rhodes (1961), was a routine Roman epic, but his second feature, A Fistful of Dollars (1964), a shameless remake of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961), caused a revolution. Although it wasn't the first spaghetti Western, it was far and away the most successful, and shot former T.V. cowboy Clint Eastwood to stardom (Leone wanted Henry Fonda or Charles Bronson but couldn't afford them). The two sequels, For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), were shot on much higher budgets and were even more successful, though his masterpiece, Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), in which Leone finally worked with Fonda and Bronson, was mutilated by Paramount Pictures and flopped at the U.S. box office. He directed Duck, You Sucker (1971) reluctantly, and turned down offers to direct The Godfather (1972) in favor of his dream project, which became Once Upon a Time in America (1984). He died in 1989 after preparing an even more expensive Soviet coproduction on the World War II siege of Leningrad. more…
