Eli Wallach and Clint Eastwood GBU

In collaboration with the National Media Museum, Lee Broughton and Mark Goodall programmed a special 50th anniversary screening of Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966).

The screening was preceded by a Q&A roundtable that featured Professor Sir Christopher Frayling (Leone biographer and Professor Emeritus of Cultural History at the Royal College of Art), Alex Cox (filmmaker and Professor of Film at the University of Colorado), Ulrich Bruckner (author and president of Explosive Media home entertainment) and Jeremy Wooding (director of the cult Western Blood Moon (2014)).

When the roundtable participants left the stage, Professor Frayling remained and delivered a specially prepared introduction to the film.

The screening event took place as part of the international conference ‘Current Thinking on the Western III’ which was convened by Lee Broughton in association with Mark Goodall and the University of Bradford. The conference took place at the University of Bradford and the National Media Museum on 14-15 June 2016. Professor Sir Christopher Frayling and Alex Cox were the keynote speakers.

Both events were kindly supported by the Leverhulme Trust.
