Gianfranco Parolini 1968
Dick Palmer
Dick Palmer is an underrated actor who rarely got to play a good guy (his real name is Mimmo
Palmero) but here, director Gianfranco Parolini turns him loose in the role of a sheriff out to
reveal the killers of a powerful landowner. The townspeople are convinced it's the Dynamite
Brothers, but Johnny isn't so sure. Angelo Francisco Lavagnino provides the usual excellent
spaghetti western score

Alberto Cardone 1966
Anthony Steffen, Loredana Nusciak
Excellent Anthony Steffen western that also features a great evil performance by Fernando
Sancho! Director Alberto (BLOOD AT SUNDOWN) Cardone knows how to set a mood and uses
Steffen's limited facial expressions to the film's advantage. Sancho massacres his family and
kidnaps Steffen's son. All of which sets him off on a mission of vengeance that is enhanced by
the great score by Francesco De Masi. Loredana (DJANGO) Nusciak co-stars. Great western!!

THE HANDS OF A GUNFIGHTER (1966)-Finally a beautiful widescreen print of this gritty Spaghetti Western starring Craig Hill and Gloria Milland, directed by Rafael Romero Marchent. Made early in the Eurowestern boom of the mid-1960s, HANDS OF A GUNFIGHTER  is yet another underrated Spanish western that is actually a decent B-western of surprising psycho-social realism. The westerns written and directed by Spaniards tend to be very different in terms of technique, tone, and thematic preoccupations from those made by Italians. Like most Spanish westerns, this movie is more crudely made than their Italian westerns, but as the movie progresses there are actually a number scenes which are evocative if rough-hewn such as the Carter Brother's funeral, the sequence in they stalk their victims and in turn are hunted, and especially the movie's final scene. As such, it is much better than contemporary films like Tierra de Fuego (1965) or I Tre del Colorado (1965). If you enjoy Eurowesterns, it is worth giving this movie a chance on it's own (limited) terms.

 ONE MORE IN HELL (1969)-Finally a very nice widescreen version in English, this one tough and gritty spaghetti western. King (George Hilton) runs through a number of dangerous situations with a sarcastic grin, fighting off land speculators, sleeping with the sheriff's flame, participating in a barroom fight in drag, in a knock-down drag-out fight in a jail cell, escaping from jail and then concocting an absurd but successful plan to rob a bank. During all this he meets Meredith (played by Paolo Gozlino), a rough but incompetent bandit who meets with surprising success when matched with the clever King.The comedy darkens, though, when King returns to town after the bank heist to find his former guardian Pastor Steve killed by the land speculators. Then ensues the plot for revenge, which involves absurd methods of murder and torture and a final gunfight. King gives up ruffles for black (he had trained in seminary, he claimed at one point) and begins quoting passages from the Bible.

THOMPSON 1880(1966)-In Spanish with English subs, letterboxed print. George Martin, Gia Sandri, Gordon Mitchell, directed by Guido Zurli. A western made during the boom of such movies in Italy, but quite an unusual one. It's not about revenge or a bag of gold, it's about a kind of economic struggle. The villain Brady (Paul Muller) asks his men to always obey the law, because guns are not as effective. He tries to control a town by building a monopoly, thus controlling the prices on all kinds of goods. This becomes difficult when Ray (George Martin) comes to town. He is unarmed, but invents the first machine gun, which gave the movie its title. Sheila (Gia Sandri) expects Ray to help her build up her own shop with lower prices. In opposite to most genre heroes, Ray is not keen on using a gun at all. But when Brady is increasingly afraid of losing his profits, the going gets tough, naturally. Great roles for José Bódalo as the drunken judge who loves to quote Shakespeare, Gordon Mitchell as a gunman with crippled hands and Pedro Sanchez as one of the bad guys.

SHERIFF WON’T SHOOT (1965)-In Spanish with English subs, After a tragic misfortune in which a gunman has killed his father, he decides to put away his guns not to use them ever again. However as he is an infallible gunman the people nominate him to be sheriff of the country. Things seem to go calmly until an outlaw band besieges the country putting it to iron and fire. The gunman will examine his conscience to decide whether he is forced to break his oath and to take up his infallible guns in order to stop the band.  A lively-enough Western but at times stupidly melodramatic, it takes advantage of its one central plot device (the tragically murdered father) over and over again in repetitive and at times ill advised way. The film is ideally suited for those who appreciate beautiful action sequences. It is not a high concept film, but it is a western to see. Mickey hargitay stars and Renato polselli directs.

$20,000 ON NUMBER 7 (1968)-No longer with an annoying  “not for sale” at the bottom of the screen! Letterboxed print.Alberto Cardone directs and the Cast: Roberto Miali (as Jerry Wilson)(Jerry Kingio), Aurora Bautista (Peggy), Adriano Micantoni (as Mike Anthony)(Guy), Spartaco Conversi (as Spean Convery)(Steel), Teodoro Corrá (as Doro Corrá)(Gringo), Hector Boilleaux (Rod), Valentino Macchi. As a second unit or assistant director, Alberto Cardone (here billed as Albert Cardiff) worked on Ben Hur, Barbarella, Summertime and Carmen among others; as director he is responsible for several 'Dollar' westerns attempting to cash in, if you'll pardon the pun, on Leone's success.The title sounds expensive but it's probably more than was spent on this spaghetti western which spares every expense but achieves a kind of style through its very sparseness; unfortunately, this pared-down approach is also applied to the story which is the most basic of revenge plots. The beautiful Aurora Batista (often in Leone-like close-ups)is wasted since she is given almost no lines to deliver in the few scenes in which she appears. There's a great deal of far-fetched tricksy shooting, and equally unbelievable fistfights. Great music, though, conducted by Cipriani.

With the co-operation of the local sheriff, Pinkerton starts to make his inquiries, coming to the conclusion that the main suspects are Clinton, a rancher, and Torres, a scientist with a passion for reptiles (...) the movie is quite enjoyable, despite its incredibly low budget, yet certain detective-movie-like atmospheres are particularly successful and seem to place the film halfway between the fading WAI genre and the highly succesfull new (back then!) Argento-inspired thrillers of the time.

PIRATES OF THE MISSISSIPPI (1964)-Beautiful letterboxed print. Horst Frank leads a criminal conspiracy that has control of the entire Mississippi River except for one river town whose sheriff is Brad Harris. They engage in an elaborate scheme to turn the Cherokee against their Harris, who like Old Shatterhand is “the red man’s friend.”  Eurowesterns often have confused geographies, but this movie places names were simply grabbed out of a hat. The Cherokee are portrayed as a plains tribes (with British Colombian cultural motifs on their tipis) living outside of Helena, Montana. Helena is placed as river town on the Mississippi River next to Vicksburg. While Pirates of the Mississippi has been routinely dismissed and overlooked, it is in fact, a rootin' tootin' old west live action comic book. It's way to violent to be considered a kiddie Western though. All the elements of a good popcorn Western are in place: Hard riding, saloon brawls, gunfights, Indian attacks, comic relief, and a dash of virginal romance. The heroes are righteous, the villains are slimy, the Indians are the usual hot-headed, easily manipulated dupes, and the townfolks are gullible dopes.

A MAN CALLED AMEN (1968)-Letterboxed print. Rare Spaghetti western with Giorgio Ardisson, Akim Tamiroff, and Isarco ravioli, directed by Guido Zurli. Amen is hired to find a stolen cache of $1,000,000 in gold coins while all the while he seems protected by a ghost. This little-known Spaghetti Western turned out to be a routine effort all round, but one that is mildly enjoyable nevertheless. It features a nice score and is enlivened by the intermittent appearances of a 'phantom gunman' figure (curiously, also to be found in MATALO! [1970]) and the numerous plot twists at the end. The most renowned actor in the cast is, of course, Akim Tamiroff - playing a tramp/town drunk called Pigsty (although his Italian moniker is literally "Stench"); actually, many of the characters have been given colorful names: Amen, Solitaire, Dean Light, Johnny Siringo, etc. Comedy relief is also present in the form of some over-the-top hard-boiled dialogue (one character is referred to as "mountain of filth", for instance) and the antics (usually subservient but, on occasion, assertive) of the chief villain's meek and long-suffering barber.

.JOHN THE BASTARD (1967)-For the first time, a Letterboxed print. Director: Armando Crispino. Cast: John Richardson, Claudio Camaso, Martine Beswick, Claudio Gora, Gordon Mitchell. Before he made superior gialli, Crispino tried this first outing in the then-popular western genre. And came up with a winner. In between parody and serious bloodshed, this is an adaptation of the Don Juan mythos featuring interesting ideas, like the subplot about mormons persecuted in the US. The cast is very good - strong actor direction being one of Crispino's forte - and the script keeps things lively. The ending, turning the whole movie into a flash-back, dwells in supernatural territory. With gems like this to be discovered, on might wonder why Italian westerns have such bad press nowadays. Don't miss.

TWICE A JUDAS (1968)-Finally a beautiful widescreen print of this kinski spaghetti western!Klaus Kinski, Antonio sabato and Cristina Galbo star. Nando Cicero's "Due Volte Giuda" aka. "Twice A Judas" of 1971 starring Antonio Sabato and the great Klaus Kinski, may not be a Spaghetti Western masterpiece, but it is certainly an entertaining and suspenseful and vastly underrated film.One aspect that makes this movie special is the amnesia story. This is one of the few Spaghetti Westerns to include amnesia, and the only one I've seen in which the topic of amnesia is actually one of the primary aspects of the plot, which follows a man (Antonio Sabato), who wakes up with a grazing gunshot wound to his head, next to a corpse in the middle of the desert, and has no clue who he is. The first half hour of the movie is quite confusing, and that's what maintains the suspense. Kinski delivers an excellent performance as always, and Sabato fits in his role very well. José Calvo is furthermore convincing as an alcoholic doctor. The rest of the performances are OK too, but I couldn't say that any of them were particularly worth mentioning. The film is nicely (though in no way outstandingly)photographed, and the score is also quite good (although certainly not brilliant).

VENGEANCE IS MINE (1968)-Uncut and letterboxed. Released here as A BULLET FOR SANDOVAL and butchered by 15 minutes of edits, this is the fully restored version! Cast: George Hilton (Corporal John Warner), Ernest Borgnine (Don Pedro Sandoval), Alberto de Mendoza (Lucky Boy), Leo Anchóriz (Friar/Father Converso), Annabella Incontrera (Carol Day). During the Civil War a Confederate soldier (Hilton) becomes a deserter when he wants to be with his fiancée, who’s about to have their baby. When he arrives at her parental home the girl has died and he is told to leave the premises by her Mexican father Don Pedro Sandoval(Borgnine). A cholera epidemic has broken out and when farmers refuse to give milk to the baby, Hilton loses his child as well. Outraged, he assembles a marauding mob and starts terrorizing the surroundings in his thirst for revenge on Sandoval. With a Spanish director and a predominantly Spanish and Latin American cast, the film is often closer to a classic Spanish drama about redemption than a spaghetti western about revenge. Rather episodic and sometimes confusing, it still is an interesting film, with a powerful opening and a bizarre conclusion, set in and around a bullring. Casting for this production was a bit odd; Borgnine, virtually the only American in the cast, plays a Mexican, while most American characters are played by Spanish and Latin American actors. (A Bullet for Sandoval) is a film with a genuinely dramatic narrative which, in a genre often dominated by action for action's sake, is refreshing and worthy of support.

YOU ARE CARRION (1972)-In Spanish with English subs AND in English with Greek subs, letterboxed prints. The reason I am offering these 2 for the price of one is that they are completely different edits  of the same film!! Director: Manuel Esteba, Cast: Pierre Brice, Steven Tedd, Fernando Sancho. The English/Italian/international version and the original Spanish version differ considerably. Alternate scenes, alternate scene order, even the ending is different. I have just watched YOU ARE A CARRION AND I WILL KILL YOU, which is the English-dubbed version of UNA CUERDA AL AMANECER as it was shown in Italy. There are differences in the credits but Esteba is still credited as both director and writer. In the States it would have been credited to Alan Smithee, for it's a different film altogether. Every bit of footage shown (including, I'd say, stuff not in the Spanish version) is Esteba's, but the editing, sound editing, dialogue  and even storyline aren't. It serves as an object lesson on how a rather good film can become an awful one. The Italian company involved obviously disliked many things in the film: Fernando Sancho's "conversations" with his donkey, the long silences, the "huh?" quality of the ending, the buddy relationship between the two villains....

7 PISTOLS FOR TIMOTHY (1966)- LETTERBOXED PRINT. Errol's son Sean Flynn plays Timothy, a young lawyer who inherits a gold mine. The bandit Rodriguez ( played by Fernando Sancho) tries to get hold of the mine by killing Timothy, but soon finds Timothy is not alone. Five experienced fighters teach the young man everything he needs to know about riding, shooting and drinking (!), and with the help of a silent stranger, they become "seven magnificent guns" ("Sette magnifiche pistole") to fight the bandits. "I never get into trouble with the law - I am the law!", Rodriguez/Sancho once exclaims, and his oh-so typical role is pure bliss. The education of a greenhorn to turn him into a real westerner is hardly a new story, but told with enthusiasm. Even if the picture is flawed, obviously made with a low budget and suffering from lack of originality, it is surprisingly entertaining.

It turns out that the Indian leader Black Eagle is reluctantly sending his people to avenge the deaths caused by renegades masquerading as soldiers.

Jesuit Joe (1991) In french with english subs, letterboxed print. Set in Western Canada in the early 1900s, an Indian half-breed returns to his native homeland to find his lost heritage. Feature from the comic strips of Hugo Pratt. We are in Western Canada in the first decade of the twentieth century.  A vulture (voiced by Jean-Pierre Kalfon) narrates the tale of Jesuit Joe, a Franco-Mohawk halfbreed who dons the red coat of a Mountie killed by bandits and wears it like his own uniform. His sister had been forced into prostitution by some men of white skin, igniting Joe's implacable vengeance. Obsessed by an unlimited thirst for the absolute as a result of a badly directed religious education, Jesuit Joe (Peter Tarter) commits a series of violent murders, apparently senseless, but all centering upon a kind of rigid Calvinist retribution. Captain Fox (John Walsh) puts himself on the trail of this strange "policeman" who seems to make his own justice. On the road there will be other surprises. In his film, director Olivier Austen stays true to the spirit of Hugo Pratt. Fans of the rather grim "comic" book will recall Joe paddling his canoe through a pristine morning. Listening to a bird singing on a branch, Joe smiles and… blam! "Too much joy in these woods." Throughout the film Jesuit Joe remains an ambiguous character who does not hesitate to save a white baby but kills ruthlessly his own kind. The ending is also ambiguous.
