Once Upon a Time in the West


Special Guest: Sir Christopher Frayling

Guest Co-Host: Josh Johnson

On our 200th episode we look at Sergio Leone’s epic Western, Once Upon a Time in the West. Released in 1968, the film was a follow-up to his “dollars trilogy” and hailed as many as one of the best Westerns ever made. The film tells the story of four main characters: Harmonica, a man looking for Justice in the dying west, Frank, a gunfighter whose reign is ending, Cheyenne, a bandit, and Jill, a former prostitute who has come to the West with the promise of a new life.
