The Cinematheque pays tribute to the filmmaker who made Clint Eastwood a star.

The Cleveland Cinematheque begins a month-long salute to director Sergio Leone tonight with a screening of A Fistful of Dollars. The first chapter of Leone's Spaghetti Western trilogy isn't the most famous — that honor belongs to the filmmaker's best movie, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly — but it is a crucial part of his career. Prior to this 1964 flick (which stars Clint Eastwood as the pistol-packing Man With No Name), Leone helmed forgettable sword-and-sandal sagas.

Also on tap this month: Fistful's follow-up, For a Few Dollars More (showing at 8:55 tonight), Once Upon a Time in the West, and, of course, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
Thu., Feb. 2, 7 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 5, 7 p.m.
