Since the development of the Italian film industry in the early 1900s, Italian filmmakers and performers have influenced cinema globally. In partnership with Grand Rapids Sister Cities International (GRSCI), UICA presents the Italian Film Series, a recurring event featuring iconic films directed by Italian filmmakers.

In the Southwest during the Civil War, a mysterious stranger, Joe (Clint Eastwood), and a Mexican outlaw, Tuco (Eli Wallach), form an uneasy partnership -- Joe turns in the bandit for the reward money, then rescues him just as he is being hanged. When Joe's shot at the noose goes awry during one escapade, a furious Tuco tries to have him murdered. The men re-team abruptly, however, to beat out a sadistic criminal and the Union army and find $20,000 that a soldier has buried in the desert.
