I think some fan editor needs to combine those two movies together.

That's because Fistfull of Dollars was done as a western remake of Yojimbo.

Yes, I know. And then later on Walter Hill's Last Man Standing as a gangster one.

Also not a remake this time but similar plots :

Baby Cart (Shogun Assassin)/Road To Perdition.

Hamlet and The Lion King.


Ah, and I've always been too curious about the similitudes between Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" and Sidney Lumet's "Fail-safe." Both are about a plane that's sent to nuke the USSR by mistake. Both look the same, the sets, black and white etc etc. Except that Strangelove is a comedy and Fail-safe a drama. Oh, and both were made in 1964.

And one is forgotten now and the other is a classic. Kubrick's genius (and Terry Southern's too) was to turn Strangelove into a satire. I don't know how much of an influence Fail Safe had on that.

I always thought The 6th Day and Paycheck were similar. Tony Goldwyn and Aaron Eckart's respective villains in each are almost identical.

Road to Perdition is Max Allan Collins homage to Lone Wolf and Cub. Perhaps not a remake, but it's not coincidental.
