Really? 

It is probably the first apart from the Eastwood films which I would suspect to have a SW influence, but actually I can't remember anything in it which is specifically SW style. .
it has a ton of Leone-esque CUs of leering bad guys.

Monte Walsh surely not, the other 2 are also westerns with van Cleef, and there is a bit more SW influence visible, but I think it is even in El condor less visible than in Eastwood's films. Actually these are 2 mediocre films, and I don't remember much from them, El condor being shot in Spain is maybe a border case for being a vehicle for its star, who made his career only with Spagies.

I really meant "obvious". Because, really, if you deny the huge SW influence in these 3 movies, I see why you don't see it in TWB either.

About Monte Walsh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUjCz0x2gTY check out the 2 hours 26 minutes mark, for example.

We could go on, it's easy, Wikipedia features a list of western films by year. And I haven't even started about TV series: even the most american show ever, little house in the prairies, had its share of SW episodes!

I'm gonna say it a last time: I see your point about AW evolving by themselves anyway, you're not wrong at all, but denying the big SW influence on american westerns of the 60's/70's makes no sense. You may have a very limited vision of what SW are. For the record, I don't even like most SW.

Leone.

You guys cannot be serious and you'll be embarrassed by this thread in a week. I'll leave the discussion now, it's becoming pointless.

Like Frayling quoted someone: In the American Western, the hero has the fastest gun; in the Leone Western, the one with the fastest gun is the hero  Wink

Pauline Kael:

Quote
It used to be that the man who stood for high principles was the man who was also the best shot. Now we no longer believe that in order to be a great shot you need principles at all. And Clint Eastwood is a totally unprincipled killer.
