At the end of this blog entry, readers will find a youtube video link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing director Sergio Leone’s 1966 iconic spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. At the same time, they can also read the transcript (read here). The episode’s original airdate was August 28, 1988 (read here). Though he considers it to be one of his favorite spaghetti westerns (read here), I think he may have changed his mind later because in an interview promoting his book about the subgenre (10,000 Ways to Die), he gives off the vibe that it has not aged well (read here). As for myself, I love the film, even though I rank it lower than it’s two predecessors – A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More. If any of you readers are interested in reading my list of my favorite Sergio Leone films, read here.
