Fifty years ago today…

…was a doubly significant day in cinema history.

In Caifornia, Walt Disney died, ten days past his 65th birthday, still working on The Jungle Book, The Happiest Millionaire, and Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day.

And in Italy, Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo, better known to many by its English title The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, was released for the first time. (It wasn't released elsewhere until 1967). It's the only Western that I could watch again and again.
