What a way to start 2023 with Sergio Leone's epic Spaghetti Western 'Once upon a Time in the West', with a classic  score by the subject of our new Season the legendary Ennio Morricone.....And what a cast, all at the top of their game.....

There's a single piece of land around Flagstone with water on it, and rail baron Morton (Gabriele Ferzetti) aims to have it, knowing the new railroad will have to stop there. He sends his ruthless henchman Frank (Henry Fonda, playing against type) to scare the land's owner, McBain (Frank Wolff), but Frank kills him instead and pins it on a known bandit, Cheyenne (Jason Robards). Meanwhile, a mysterious gunslinger, nicknamed Harmonica, with a score to settle (Charles Bronson) and McBain's new wife, Jill (Claudia Cardinale), arrive in town......
