The third film in the trilogy, ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’. This is a stunning and incredibly rare country-of-origin Italian 2 Foglio for the film. It was only used for the Rome premiere of the film and its limited run in the Italian capital. The number of these still existing is said to be less than a handful, however, we would prefer to say less than a dozen to be on the safe side.
Easily one of the most important western films in history, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Western opus! This epic film and it’s predecessors in the “man with no name” trilogy ushered in a new gritty reality for western films. Of course, simply making things gritty doesn’t make a great movie in and of itself — it was really Leone’s genius behind the camera, supported by Ennio Morricone’s memorable score that really propelled these films to greatness!
If you are looking for the ONE most important poster for this epic film — this rare “silver” style Italian 2-foglio is likely it! Not only is it a country-of-origin poster, nearly always the most desirable, but it is also a special style only used in Rome for the premiere. It was printed in much smaller numbers and replaced by additional designs as the film opened wide across the country. This is a poster as epic as the film itself!
