I just saw this video that was posted at the beginning of this year. It uses the first season of The Mandalorian and cuts it as a spaghetti western trailer, complete with Morricone music from the Dollars movies. Of course the show is heavily influenced by westerns like the original Star Wars movies were.

Wesley Morris, a "critic at large" for the New York Times, had a piece about the maverick cop movies that were released in 1971. Naturally, that includes Dirty Harry:

?Shaft,? ?Dirty Harry? and the Rise of the Supercop

Quote
By 1971, corruption had become proof of obsessive dedication and hyper-competence ? a means to an end. Warner Bros. released ?Dirty Harry? starting that December and invented, by way of Clint Eastwood, a one-man counter-countercultural strike force whose ?Do ya feel lucky, punk?? speeches are the character?s version of Miranda rights. The San Francisco Police Department is too mired in procedure, second-guessing and sheer slowness for Harry Callahan. The calm with which he glides toward a bank robber he just shot, in one of the opening sequences, belongs in one of those David Attenborough nature specials.
