Fifty years ago today...

...was a doubly significant day in cinema history.

In Caifornia, Walt Disney died, ten days past his 65th birthday, still working on The Jungle Book, The Happiest Millionaire, and Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day.

And in Italy, Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo, better known to many by its English title The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, was released for the first time. (It wasn't released elsewhere until 1967). It's the only Western that I could watch again and again.

Possibly the best Western ever filmed, and that is one of the greatest pieces of movie music ever written.

I love GBU but also hold Once Upon A Time In The West in equally high esteem.

Ditto. Although I can attest to The Good, The Bad And The Ugly's ability to hold a roomful of Churchillians' attentions for three hours at 2am in the morning in an impromptu film marathon, because it is a very good file.
