Intro to spaghetti westerns

Spaghetti westerns (Italian-made western movies) aren't limited to the Dollar Trilogy by Sergio Leone, as great as that is. Today's New York Times has a good article by someone who loves the genre, like director Quentin Tarantino.

Many of these movies are available through Netflix (some in streaming). A problem is that they may be available with horrendous and distracting dubbing. Look for the original with subtitles if you can. An added attraction for the ladies: great-looking stars like Franco Nero and Terence Hill (in the photo, real name Massimo Girotti).

Find out even more at the Spaghetti Western Database.
