Hirohiko Araki Comments on Clint Eastwood’s Dollars Trilogy for 60th Anniversary

Hirohiko Araki comments on 4K restored version of Clint Eastwood’s Dollars Trilogy, praising Eastwood’s legendary and heroic standing pose.

In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Dollars Trilogy, ARC FILMS started screening a 4K restored version of all three films at once in Japan starting on March 22, 2024. The Dollars Trilogy consists of three Italian Spaghetti Western films directed by Sergio Leone: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). They star Clint Eastwood as the protagonist, the “Man with No Name”. Ennio Morricone composed the music for the trilogy.

The official Japanese website for the trilogy posted a comment from the creator of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Hirohiko Araki, on March 20, 2024. The @araki_jojo account shared it today on April 24, 2024. Other celebrities who commented on the film trilogy include Ayako Ishizu (film critic), Daisuke Onitsuka (film critic, translator of Sergio Leone’s 2002 biography), Hideo Kojima (game creator), and Guillermo de Oliveira (director of Sad Hill Unearthed).

Hirohiko Araki’s Comment on the Dollars Trilogy

Standing alone in the wilderness, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, a poncho, and a gaze that seems to pierce through the dazzling light. This simple standing pose of Clint Eastwood embodies elegance! It’s legendary! It’s the figure of a hero unrivaled by any other!

Araki has been a fan of Clint Eastwood since his father took him to see For a Few Dollars More in 1966. Eastwood eventually became Araki’s ideal image of a hero, with Jotaro Kujo‘s design being inspired by him. Araki met Clint Eastwood in September 2012 and had an interview with him which Shueisha published in JOJOmenon in October 2012. In December 2021, Araki also commented on Eastwood’s Cry Macho film.
