The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (YouTube Version)

Clint Eastwood as The Man with No Name. Lee Van Cleef as Angel Eyes. Eli Wallach as Tuco. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Could any or all of these three actors/characters be the ancestor of Boba Fett? Jango Fett? Han Solo?! In this episode of Digging Star Wars with guest star Phil Congleton, we compare Sergio Leone’s classic spaghetti western The Good, The Bad and the Ugly – complete with the iconic score of Ennio Morricone – to George Lucas’s Star Wars: Episode IV – The Empire Strikes Back starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill,  Carrie Fisher and Jeremy Bulloch (aka Jeremy Bullock) as Boba Fett. We think even John Williams may have lifted a thing or two from Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo. Listen in to this YouTube entry of our our final episode of 2011.
