Sample text

When Leone was in the US in the early eighties making Once Upon a Time in America, Eastwood visited him at his hotel. ‘I’ve often been asked if I could make another fi lm with him’, said Leone, ‘I always refuse. It is impossible’. They could never have surpassed the Dollars trilogy, especially The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, their masterpiece. Hang ’Em High (1968) Following his success as the ‘Man with No Name’, Eastwood said ‘Arrivederci Roma’ and returned to the US, had a shave and gained a name, as Jed Cooper in Hang ’Em High, which straddled the badlands between spaghetti and Hollywood westerns.

Early in the episode, Favor is trying to hire drovers during a drought. Braggart Fred Grant (Van Cleef) wants to be hired (to support his wife and three children) but Favor refuses. During a brawl, Favor punches Grant, who is killed when he bangs his head against a cattle pen. Favor looks after Grant’s wife, Dolly (Brenda Scott), and her children, including vengeful son Adam (Mark Slade, later of TV’s The High Chaparral). Van Cleef also appeared in the next Rawhide episode ‘Piney’ as a completely different character – Deck Somers, a part-Indian, who is employed on a robbery because he has exceptional eyesight and hearing.

He curses those he thinks responsible: Rabbit and Rowdy. Several unexplained ‘accidents’ befall Rabbit, after he loses his lucky charm: his horse bolts, a wagon crashes and a cougar attacks him. Rabbit is eventually shot dead (the bullet passing through a Bible in his pocket) – but not before confessing that he went to town to kill Judd deliberately, in revenge for his own wife’s murder. The good cast included Harry Dean Stanton and Dan Duryea, as the eerie, harmonica-playing ‘prophet’. By this point in the series, Eastwood’s close friend and stunt double William ‘Bill’ Thompkins had joined the regular cast, as gummy drover ‘Toothless’.
