Sergio Leone populated his cinematic universe with cutthroats, scoundrels and villains that inhabited the American West in a way no other filmmaker had envisioned before. These characters had no connection with the historical frontier, but they were a product of a boyish vision that came from watching multiple Ford and Hawks westerns. The narratives had their roots in the "Cinematic West," but also came to define a a type of western genre that would be unique unto itself.

Provocative, violent and high-octane are words that describe his film catalog. Quentin Tarantino even credited Leone as being the originator of the modern action film with the release of “Fistful of Dollars.” (Although it must be said that Akira Kurosawa probably gave a "helping hand.”) vimeo.com/153733774

His actors were also a huge part of that vision. Eastwood will forever be synonymous with "The Man with No Name." And other actors like Charles Bronson, Lee van Cleef, Eli Wallach, Henry Fonda and Robert De Niro also took part in memorable roles.

Ennio Morricone gave these films their unique voice. His avant-garde creations are world classics that are instantly recognizable around the world.

Here is a snippet to showcase clips from some of Leone’s best work.
