Director: Italo Alfaro, Stars: Robert Malcolm, Piero Vida, Rosalba Neri. Charity (Malcolm) is in charge of delivering the railroad payroll, but some locals and a Mexican gang have their own plans for the money. This movie was a hoot - very cleverly performed and a great spoof on Italian spaghetti westerns. Charity Jenkins is a handsome actor who appears very natural and at ease. I wonder what happened to him (Robert Malcolm). I loved the Italian Mafioso inferences. There are several subplots that drive the movie - the money being the main one. Charity is controlling the delivery of the government's payment for the railroad, but the Italian saloon owner has other plans. So do the Mexican robbers. So does the robber-turned-padre. All of these combine with a little romancing, fighting, chasing, and clever interaction among all the characters. A fun to watch movie!

A snake-oil salesman is chased across the desert by a gang of Mexican bandits. He finds out, however, that he is being protected by the spirits of Davey Crockett, Pecos Bill and Johnny Appleseed. The story of the drunk ghost of Davy Crockett trying to coax an young man into going after some treasure is full of laughable invisible gags, some abysmal jokes that are far funnier than anything one could have planned and some of the shoddiest and just plain weird action scenes ever committed to film. However there is more here than just cheap laughs, there is also some rather bizarre and surreal scenes. These focus mainly on Davy Crockett's ghost as the other famous western icons (Pecos Bill, Johnny Appleseed etc.) attempt to convince him to join them as the Horse Riders In The Sky - which I guess is the wild west afterlife.

LONG DAY OF VENGEANCE (1967)-ENGLISH DUBBED AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, CUT SCENES RESTORED WITH ENGLISH SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Florestano Vancini (as Stan Vance), Stars: Giuliano Gemma, Francisco Rabal, Gabriella Giorgelli. After three years of heavy physical labor in a hellish prison in the desert, the former Sheriff Ted Barnett escapes. Barnett was framed by three men and wrongly convicted to thirty years hard labor for the murder of his father. He looks for those that had accused him, seeking revenge. My personal favorite among the many westerns Giuliano Gemma appeared in! Gemma portrays a prisoner with a ridiculously long beard (obviously inspired by the Count of Monte Christo here) who escapes after 3 years. Nonetheless, he quickly begins to hunt the 3 villains who got him sentenced although he was innocent: the killer Gomez (who is forced with a gun to shave off Gemma's beard first!), the corrupt sheriff Douglas (who has married the prisoner's girlfriend in the meantime) and the boss of the gang, Cobb, an honorable citizen it seems... It's a straight revenge story with a great cast of supporting actors: the 4 Mexican killers sent by Gomez, the doctor (Pajarito), the funny hangman, the two beautiful ladies (Nieves Navarro and Gabriella Giorgelli)... everybody is just perfect for the part they play! The terrific musical score by Armando Trovaioli with its trumpet theme sticks to the memory, too.

Muller), Stars: Robert Woods, Aldo Berti, Marc Fiorini. A group of killers seek out wanted gunman El Puro for the $10,000 dollar reward. Their target, a drunkard and fed up with living, is roused to action after they murder his girlfriend, Rosie. The direction is more spirited, with a well staged gunfight and an excellently handled climax and manages to make some of the more slower scenes interesting enough at least to watch instead of skipping them and getting to the highlights. The acting is good in places, even if Robert Woods performance as "El Puro" is slightly disappointing after seeing his great role in "Black Jack" (1968), but Mario Brega, Marc Fiorini (as Ashborn Hamilton Jr.) and Maurizio Bonuglia acquit themselves well to there roles as the villains of the picture
