An original 1966 re-release Italian Locandina poster for the 1964 spaghetti western classic Fistful Of Dollars (Per un Pugno di Dollari) It was released in Italy in 1964 and in the U.S. in 1967. Directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood in his first leading role as wandering gunfighter that plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.

This genre was totally new at the time and went onto to spawn countless copy cat franchises, like Django.

The poster artwork was created by Italian poster legend Sandro Symeoni, who has over 3,000 posters and record sleeves to his credit (Vertigo, L’Angleterre nue, The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll, Deadly Inheritance, Fat City, Scandal Incorporated, Grisbi, Breakdance, The Other Canterbury Tales). He was not familiar with Clint Eastwood, and so the artwork depicts a generic cowboy in a gunfight. Spaghetti Westerns had not yet been released in the United States, and this was a partially Italian film, so many of the European cast and crew took on American-sounding stage names. The director Sergio Leone is credited under the name Bob Robertson, and Ennio Morricone went under Dan Savio.
