I didn't think a dumb question like this needed answering but apparently somebody on IMDB felt the need to ask it (and it has raised quite a discussion)...

It's perfect timing, large one...

I got reminded of a Czech joke... which makes a bit more sense in Czech, but anyway...
It has eyes like a cat, it has ears like a cat, it has a snout like a cat, it has whiskers like a cat, it has paws like a cat, it has a tail like a cat, but it's not a cat.
It's a tomcat.

(The generic word for "cat" in Czech, "kočka", is female, so that's why it makes more sense in Czech.)

If they were not westerns, I doubt I'd like them as that. Therefore, they are.

There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time In the West, and Duck, You Sucker! are legitimate westerns. it is not easy for me to say that about foreign-made films, but Leone's love for the American western and emulation of them comes through with sparkling crystal clear clarity. They are westerns.
