My Name is Nobody

directed by Tonino Valerii

Western god Sergio Leone produced this rough and tumble western comedy about a young gunslinger named Nobody (Terrence Hill) who is bent on making sure that aging pistolero Jack Beauregard (Henry Fonda) goes out in a hail of gunfire befitting a man of his stature. Hill sheds much of the silliness that made for good but mediocre fun in the Trinity series, and the result is a humorous cool that resonates. Fonda, back in the western saddle after Once Upon a Time in the West, is perfect as the fast gun who knows that a faster gun will inevitably come along. Watch Beauregard square off against the wild bunch. It’s pure western gold.
