Sergio Leone's original uncut masterpiece is a monumental epic. The picture itself is as big as its Monument Valley locations. As grand as it's fine distinguished cast, and as tough and bawdy as everybody imagines the old west. Henry Fonda plays the blackest character of his long career, and he's utterly convincing as Frank, the ruthless, Disc 1, murderous psychopath who suffers no conscience pangs after annihilating an entire family. Jason Robards is the half-breed falsely accused of the terrible slaughter. Charles Bronson plays The Man, who remembers how his brother was savagely tortured. Brilliantly directed be Leone, this glorious picture re-established the Western's significance to cinema art.
