Sergio Leone, famous for his "spaghetti westerns," directed this humorous tale about an Irish terrorist obsessed with explosives who teams up with a down-to-earth peasant during the Mexican Revolution. A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE (aka DUCK, YOU SUCKER) stars James Coburn and Rod Steiger.
An apolitical bandit plotting a bank job meets an explosives expert haunted by memories of his participation in the Irish Rebellion. The two join forces, and together they get drawn into the Mexican revolution.
- The movie was filmed in the deserts of Spain.
