Spaghetti Western, also known as Italo-Western, is the nickname given to an Italian film movement and sub-genre of Western films from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s. The name derives from the fact that most of these films were produced and directed by Italians, usually in co-production with a Spanish partner, and in some cases, a German partner. Typically, the partners would insist that some of their stars be cast in the film for promotional purposes. The best-known and perhaps most typical films of this genre are A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), all directed by Sergio Leone, starring Clint Eastwood and with the musical scores of Ennio Morricone.
