Hitchin' Post | Yojimbo (1961) and Dollar for the Dead (1998)



In this special Hitchin' Post episode, Michael and Pax delve into Sergio Leone's influences by discussing the 1961 samurai classic Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa, which inspired A Fistful of Dollars. Then we also discuss the 1998 TV movie Dollar for the Dead starring Emilio Estevez, which Leone's Dollars Trilogy in turn inspired.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)



In this episode, Pax and Michael finish Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy with the epic The Good, the Bad and the Ugly starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. It's the longest of the trilogy, but is it the best? And how does it fit in with the other two?

Tune in as we hash that out, right after a discussion of the Weird Western comic The Sixth Gun, William R. Cox's novel The Gunsharp, the 1967 film Hombre, DC's Justice Riders, and "The Origin of Kid Colt" from Kid Colt, Outlaw #170.
