Public $7 | Members $5

The Wild, The Sadists and The Outsiders – Spaghetti Westerns in American Culture: Explore how Italian filmmakers took an American genre of film-making and completely reshaped it giving the world a very different view of the old west. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly blurred the definition of good and evil. We will cover the work of Sergio Leone as well as explore the countless spin-offs as done by the Spanish, Germans, Mexicans and others. A delicious selection of film clips is used to give examples of why the European view of the old West continues to endure as a cult phenomenon. Get out your six shooter and join us.
