Top Ten Best Clint Eastwood Movies of All-Time

AFI FEST 2011 Presented By Audi - "J. Edgar" Opening Night Gala - Red Carpet

3. A Fistfull of Dollars

A Fistfull of Dollars beats out For a Few Dollars More simply because it came first. This was the film that started the “Man with No Name” trilogy, and it showed American audiences the talent and expertise of director Sergio Leone. This movie was essentially the spawning of an entire style and genre of filmmaking (the Spaghetti Western). More importantly for this list, however, it was the first film that really showed moviegoers the talent of Clint Eastwood. A Fistfull of Dollars put him on the map.
