    Lee Van Cleef played in A Few Dollars more, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, but he didn\'t play in Fistful of Dollars. Both he and Clint were great together!!

    Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef together, Amazing! Not only the best western movie ever made, but two of the best western stars of all time. The two only had three movies together and all of them were unsurpassed by any western genre to this day. For A Few Dollars More Fistful of Dollars The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Lee Van Cleef died wayto young!!
