For a Few Dollars More (Italian: Per qualche dollaro in più) is a 1965 spaghetti western film directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood as "Man with No Name", the hero, and German actor Klaus Kinski in a supporting role as a secondary villain. The film was released in the United States in 1967 and is the second part of what is commonly known as the Leone / Eastwood "Dollars" trilogy.

Music

Ennio Morricone composed the film's soundtrack as he did for A Fistful of Dollars. In the United States, Hugo Montenegro released a cover version as did Leroy Holmes who released a cover version of the soundtrack album with the original American poster art. Maurizio Graf sang a vocal "Occhio Per Occhio"/"Eye For An Eye" to the music of the cue "Sixty Seconds to What" track that did not appear in the film but was released as a tie-in 45rpm record.

The rock band Year Long Disaster has recorded a song called Per qualche dollaro in più. However, it is unknown how large the connection with it is.
