Example text

The reason? ’ The US trailer misidentified Tuco as ‘The Bad’ and Angel Eyes as ‘The Ugly’, which saddled Van Cleef with the epithet ‘Mr Ugly’ for his subsequent spaghetti westerns. Critics were divided on the merits of Leone’s third western. On 25 January 1968, the New York Times, who called it ‘The Burn, the Gouge and the Mangle (the screen name is simply inappropriate)’, said that it ‘must be the most expensive, pious and repellent movie in the history of its peculiar genre’. Variety noted, ‘A curious amalgam of the visually striking, the dramatically feeble and the offensively sadistic’.

When it was fi rst aired in 1959, Gunsmoke was the top-rated TV show, followed by Wagon Train, Have Gun Will Travel and The Rifleman. Other western shows in the top 30 included Maverick (No. 6), Tales of Wells Fargo (No. 7), The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (No. 10), plus Zane Gray Theatre, The Texan, Wanted: Dead or Alive (starring Steve McQueen), Cheyenne, Sugarfoot and The Lawman, with Rawhide bringing up the rear at number 28. For the 1959–60 season, Rawhide rose to 17th place, but by 1960–61, the series’ peak, it was 6th.

Though Eastwood had noted during the making of The Good that he could pick the parts he wanted to play, on his return to the US he capitalised on the success of the ‘Dollars’ fi lms by typecasting himself as a Leonesque western hero. With his ‘Dollars’ earnings and a $119,000 Rawhide payoff, Eastwood formed his own production company, Malpaso (named after Malpaso Creek on his land is Monterey), with a view to having a personal stake in his films: this way he would be able to control his own career and the projects he participated in.
