MY NAME IS NOBODY * (Theatrical Release USA 1974)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

My Name is Nobody
—original, almost unusual, story with a light Sergio Leone (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) flavor—serves western film fans well. The storyline’s idea came from Sergio Leone. Though not the best of the spaghetti film genre, it still stands as a solid 4.1/5.0 star rating. There is little character development and an audience may find themselves asking, at points, what is the meaning and why is this important.

Additional characters/cast include: Nessuno (Terence Hill), Jack Beauregard (Henry Fonda), Sullivan (Jean Martin), Honest John (R.G.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Terence Hill became known for the scene in this film of the fast draw and handling of a western hand gun as well as the laid back persona that he portrayed. It’s good entertainment and can be easily missed by the Western Movie fan. Ron Howard’s  The Missing has a slightly higher entertainment value than this film, but this film successfully appeals to an international western movie audience.

*Also known as Il mio nome é Nessuno
