After A Fistful of Dollars (1964) proved to be a success, the careers of three of its cast and crew dramatically changed. For Sergio Leone, his second film as a director had proved to be a breakthrough. For Clint Eastwood, the former Universal-International Pictures bit player and Rawhide TV star broke through as a leading man on the big screen. Finally, for Ennio Morricone, the up-and-coming composer had his first notable film score that garnered major attention. This trio would quickly reunite for a sequel, For A Few Dollars More; Kino has licensed the film for its UHD Blu-ray debut.

Would anyone know why the restored opening logos are missing? Seems odd for KL given it’s from the same source? And I’m taking it film grain is intact even if not directly mentioned in the review? I haven’t seen the BRs.

The restored UA logo on the 2018 Kino Blu-ray reflected what American audiences saw during the film's first release in 1967; this release - and many of the film's previous home video incarnations - reflects the original edit of the film, which didn't have any UA logo (hexagonal or multicolored) preceding the start of the film. A bit of a head scratcher here too why it didn't carry over, given that the original multicolored UA/Transamerica logo was restored for the 4K UHD of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I'm hoping that either Robert A. Harris or the Kino Insider can chime in on why the UA logo is absent here.
