Duck Y S c

As part of the British Film Institute’s month long celebration of the films of Sergio Leone, the director’s Zapata Spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dynamite / Duck, You Sucker (1971) will be screened at the BFI Southbank in London on Monday 30 April 2018. The Mexican Revolution set film, which was Leone’s final Western, stars James Coburn and Rod Steiger and features a quite unique soundtrack score by Ennio Morricone. Christopher Frayling’s definitive chapter on Zapata Spaghetti Westerns, ‘Zapata-Spaghetti: reflections on the Italian Western and the Mexican Revolution,’ appears in Lee Broughton’s edited collection Critical Perspectives on the Western: From A Fistful of Dollars to Django Unchained (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016).
