This rare Italian film poster is for the legendary Spaghetti Western starring Clint Eastwood and directed by Sergio Leone. This poster, with the silver background, was printed for use at the Italian premiere of the film in Rome. A completely different poster was used for the film's main release. This film was the final in the Dollars Trilogy, preceded by A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More. Although at the time of release the film didn't receive great critical acclaim, it is now considered one of the greatest westerns of all time.
