Clint Eastwood's legendary "Man With No Name" makes his powerful debut in this thrilling, action packed "new breed of western" (Motion Picture Herald) from the acclaimed director of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More. Exploding with blistering shoot outs, dynamic performances and atmospheric cinematography, it's an undisputed classic of the genre.
A mysterious gunman (Eastwood) has just arrived in San Miguel, a grim, dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers are terrorising the impoverished citizens. A master of the "quick draw," the stranger soon receives offers of employment from each gang. But his loyalty cannot be bought; he accepts both jobs and sets in motion a plan to destroy both groups of criminals, pitting one against the other in a series of brilliantly orchestrated set-ups, showdowns and deadly confrontations.
