Hellbent for Letterbox: Yojimbo (1961) and Dollar for the Dead (1998)
In this special Hitchin' Post episode, Pax and I look into Sergio Leone's influences. First, we discuss the 1961 samurai classic Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa, which inspired A Fistful of Dollars. Then we also take a look at the 1998 TV movie Dollar for the Dead starring Emilio Estevez, which Leone's Dollars Trilogy in turn inspired.
