The Spaghetti West documents the film genre referred to as Spaghetti Westerns. These movies were made in Italy, where production costs were very cheap and the terrain offered perfectly believable sets, during the 1950s and '60s. While Sergio Leone became the most well-known director that made his bones in the genre, a number of famous film personalities such as Clint Eastwood and Ennio Morricone established themselves in these Westerns. The film utilizes clips of some of the most famous spaghetti westerns, as well as interviews with those who made the films and those who have been inspired by these sparse, stylish movies.
