POKER WITH PISTOLS (1967)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. THERE IS SOME PICTURE DISTORTION NEAR THE END OF THE FILM FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES.A little-known genre entry that seems to divide those who have seen it. It has been called completely forgettable by some, but others think it’s one of the best films of director Vari, a solid runner-up in the spaghetti western directors division and a personal favourite of some of the people on our forum. It has both George Eastman (Luigi Montefiori) and George Hilton in fine form, and was written by some of the finest screenwriters in the business, Ferdinando di Leo and Augusto Caminito. At the same time it suffers from a limited budget and a script that often seems more appropriate to a thriller than a western. It is full of twists, turns and sudden revelations, which makes it also hard for reviewers to write about the movie without giving too much away …The film opens with an extended card game. Lucas (Eastman), a professional card player, is challenged – and beaten – by a mysterious passer-by called Terrail (Hilton). Completely cleaned out, he borrows money from a Mexican called Lazar (José Torres), but is again beaten by Terrail, who makes him an unusual offer: he is willing to pay Lucas’ debts to the Mexican if Lucas, in return, is willing to bring a wagon containing a useless load of paper (!) to the town of Chamaco. Like you and me, Lucas asks himself what might be the catch, and soon he is in all kinds of trouble: the wagon is held up by a gang of Mexicans and the town of Chamaco is controlled by the shady businessman Masters (Mimmo Palmara), who doesn’t like people nosing around …

TWICE A JUDAS (1969)-LETTERBOXED PRINT, UNCUT WITH 6 MINUTES OF EXTRA FOOTAGE! Directed by: Nando Cicero, Stars: Klaus Kinski, Antonio Sabato, Cristina Galbó. Luke Barrett, having lost his memory due to an accident, does not realize that Dingus had killed his wife and brother to take possession of the Barretts’ land and money. At first Luke trusts him, but while looking for his forgotten identity he discovers the truth. 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.

Lovable rogue Dean Madison (played by the charming Mark Damon, always good as a lovable rogue!) enlists a French munitions expert and his "niece" (played by the luscious Rosalba Neri--she and Damon would be reunited the next year in DEVIL'S WEDDING NIGHT) to help save his brother Sam, who has just been caught while robbing a bank. After that incident is resolved, about one-third of the way into the film, a blind man named Felipe is waiting for the quartet, and explains that he was kept prisoner and tortured by a mad Mexican general who has appointed himself as "El Supremo" and has built an impregnable fortress which is filled with gold.

THE NIGHT OF THE SERPENTS (1969)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Giulio Petroni, Stars: Luke Askew, Luigi Pistilli, Magda Konopka. Giulio Petroni directed some very good spaghetti westerns during his short career, among them DEATH RIDES A HORSE, TEPEPA, AND FOR A ROOF A SKYFULL OF STARS, and this very obscure 1969 story of intrigue and murder, NIGHT OF THE SERPENTS (NEST OF VIPERS, RINGO KILL) starring the little known American actor Luke Askew and genre regulars Luigi Pistilli and William Bogard. Luke plays Luke, a gringo saved from death in the desert by bandit leader Bogard, whose men treat the Americano like the drunken fool he is. He's been inside a tequila bottle for a long time (later on we find out why) and is chosen to be a sacrifice in a plot hatched by Federale Lieutenant Hernandez (Pistilli). The plot? Kill Manuel, a kid who stands to inherit 10,000 dollars, and all of Manuel's relatives want a piece of it. Askew is good as the drunk, nervously rubbing his lips and eyeing bottles of tequila he can't afford. When he decides to sober up and take a stand the hair on your neck will stand up. The drunk fights like he's ten feet tall, says one of Bogard's men. Chelo Alonso is along for the ride as Manuel's immoral aunt, and the entire cast is good, as is the music by Riz Ortolani.

THE RELENTLESS 4 (1965)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Primo Zeglio,  Stars: Adam West, Claudio Undari, Dina Loy. When Texas Ranger Sam Garrett (Adam West of "Batman") thwarts a quartet of greedy bounty hunters from collecting the loot on a recently cleared outlaw's head, these maniacal man hunters frame him for the death of a cattle baron. The title of this low-budget spaghetti western refers to these trigger-happy homicidal hombres. The Relentless Four" has a superb musical score from veteran composers Marcello Giombini & Franco Pisano. This gritty looking western appears to have been lensed on the same set that Sergio Leone used for "A Fistful of Dollars." Miguel Fernandez Mila's wide-screen cinematography is pretty good.

FREDDY AND THE LAW OF THE PRARIE (1964)-IN GERMAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Sobey Martin, Stars: Mamie Van Doren!,Freddy Quinn, Rik Battaglia, Beba Loncar. We are introduced to Anita (Beba Loncar), who has not seen Fred since she was eight. When the ranch is attacked at night by bandits's looking for Uncle Teddy's gold, only the girl escapes. By the time Freddy finally arrives, the house has been burned to the ground. So our hero heads for Moon Valley, a very fake looking western town, looking for his niece. The Dixie Girls are performing on stage and of course we have to sit through their entire number, as well as four men imitating them to the sound of riotous German laughter. Freddy, now known as 'The Greenhorn', meets Anita (now dresses as a man) and of course she fails to recognize him. Actually, he's more interested in the Dixie Grils' main attraction Oliva (Mamie van Doren), just like all the other men in the bar. Eventually Freddy pretends to be Black Bill (bet you never saw that one coming) to take Oliva away with him. He robs a stagecoach (that is obviously standing still in every close up) and guess what? Olvia is already on there. Now all remains is to sort things out with his niece.

SHADOW OF ZORRO (1962)- Director: Joaquín Luis Romero Marchent (as Joaquín L. Romero Marchent), Stars: Frank Latimore, María Luz Galicia, Paul Piaget. This Zorro adventure picks up where La venganza del Zorro ended. The same team and players are present again, possibly the films were shot back to back. Frank Latimore is a very jolly Don José and it is hard to believe that this is supposed to be the same guy who turns into the acrobatic masked avenger. Robert Hundar is quite menacing as the furious bandit Billy. Most of the action is set in a Western town and the bandits' camp in the mountains, therefore the film comes across more like an early SW than a typical Zorro adventure. There is only one swashbuckling scene, this Zorro knows how to use a rifle instead. Other than some of the posters and VHS sleeves suggest, Zorro does not wear the typical eye mask but a black scarf over his face here.

7 FROM TEXAS (1964)-Letterboxed print. Cast: Paul Piaget (Bob Carey / Gringo), Claudio Undari (as Robert Hundar)(Ringo), Fernando Sancho (Scometti), Gloria Milland (Mary/Maria). 10 minutes longer than previous versions! A young man called Bob Carey (Paul Piaget)is released from prison. He has spent five years in jail for shooting a man in a duel; although he maintained it was self-defense, the three brothers of the victim, led by Ringo (Robert Hundar) have sentenced him to death.This effort from director Joaquín Luis Romero Marchent is definitely a pre-Leone western. It has the feel of a classic American western and - very typical for these early Spanish westerns - vengeance is still presented as a reprehensible feeling. Even Fernando Sancho's ebullient trouble-maker is another indication that we're in pre-Leone land: he's not yet the Mexican villain he'd soon become (thanks to the Ringo movies).

WEST OF THE RIO GRANDE (1983)-In Spanish with english subs, letterboxed print. Extremely rare and late in the Spaghetti western cycle, the film stars Aldo Sambrell,Cándida López,and Joaquín Gómez and was directed by Jose Maria Zabalza. In the American West after the Civil War, coexistence is subjected to the violence that the war had generated among the North and the South. Without an organized authority, judges and executioners emerge everywhere. A woman will find it's an ordeal to survive, because his husband trapped under a tree. But when asking for help, none of the people that live across the road will help her. Al oeste de rio grande tells the real story of the wild west and in fact is a mix between the classic American style and that of the Spaghetti.: You have to love those scenes between Sydney Ling and Aldo Sambrell,they are really fighting here, rough, tough and the hard way. The actions scenes here are quite unique. It's amazing to see the energetic Sydney Ling taking on a great quantity of gringos and Indians. The  couple played by John Holland and Julie La Rousse is also quite amusing. The most amazing scene of this film, is at the end when actors ,Aldo Sambrell, John Holland and Julie La Rousse are hanging Sydney Ling onto a funeral coach which is pulled by four horses and are pulling Sydney Ling over some very rough roads. All this is real, without any stand-inn and without any real tricking(this has never been done before, it's really artistic as well) So, yes it's an interesting piece of work from Zabalza.

GUNFIGHT AT HIGH  NOON (1964)-Beautiful letterboxed print of this extremely well done early Spaghetti western. El Sabor de la venganza (1963) is perhaps the best of the Pre-Leone euro-westerns, one of the best "Spanish westerns," and Joaquin Marchent's best western. Genre fans looking for something similar to the Dollar's films often overlook and under-rate what is a very well made b-western that foreshadows the later Gothic family westerns like El Pistolero dell'Ave Maria (1969). El Sabor de la venganza at first glance appears to have more in common with American westerns than later euro-westerns that, it at first seems, have been more completely translated by the filmmakers to their own historical and cultural perspectives. Ortolani's score is certainly based on American examples and is not nearly as inventive as that in other euro-westerns. Also, though the movie doesn't have the same sly ironies that the genre is well known for it's sincere enjoyment and indulgence in western conventions is very much in line with the self-consciousness of the genre. The long quasi-documentary rodeo sequence in the middle of the movie, complete with a Rio Bravo (1959)-style cowboy song sung over it, is a great example of this. This sequence, following a well put together montage about the brothers each living their separate lives, may annoy some viewers, but I think that it provides a good bridge between the two halves of the movie, streamlining and focusing attention on the pivotal moments in the plot.

5 FOR REVENGE (1966)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Starring Guy Madison, Monica Randall, and Mariano Molina. This is a very good Italian western with a decent cast and enough suspense to keep the viewer involved to the very end, and oh what a great ending it is! The music is very good and definitely appropriate for a spaghetti western (lots of guitar, whistling, some trumpets). I especially like the sound of the blaring guitar note that repeats while the five vengeance seekers are tied up and baking in the sun. Closer to the end of the film we are treated to some cool zoom shots and great music as the adversaries face each other in the street. It's great, dramatic spaghetti style action. The characters look a bit too clean cut for a spaghetti western, but the rest makes up for it. People that like revenge stories will love the part where a slow painful death is gleefully delivered to a rapist as his victim watches. Great stuff!

QUINTO FIGHTING PROUD (1969)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Directed by Leon Klimovsky and starring Steven Tedd, German Cobos, and Sarah Ross. Quinto: non ammazzare is a low budget spaghetti western by experienced director Leon Klimovsky who is probably best known for horror flicks like "The Werewolf's Shadow". Surprisingly, "Quinto" does not follow the typical paths of the European western wave around 1969. It lacks both the sarcasm and the Eastwood type of antihero. Instead, this movie is almost entirely set in a lonely stagecoach station in a desert, thus this "indoors western" has much in common with a theatre play. Several bandits arrive at the station. The old station-master, a young man who helps in the kitchen and a couple of women become their captives. The bunch of rogues hides at the station because they committed a bank robbery - but the money is gone. All of them had worn the same kind of mask and one of them must have taken the money, but who? The bandits begin to accuse each other of hiding the stolen money and soon the killing begins...Good performances by Raf Baldassarre, Roberto Camardiel as the station-master and Sarah Ross as Kate, the female member of the gang.

BETWEEN GOD THE DEVIL AND A WINCHESTER (1968)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. A stranger being chased by bandits dies in an accident, but not before he has had a chance to hide a treasure map the bandits wanted. A boy witnesses where it was hidden, retrieves it and passes it on to the local preacher. The preacher recognizes that much of the treasure was likely that from a local mission. He sets out to get it before the bandits find it. Director Girolami (using the pseudonym Dario Silvestri), who dabbled in everything from comedy to action-oriented efforts, is the lesser-known father of cult film-maker Enzo G. Castellari (curiously enough, Roland co-starred in the latter's debut feature – ANY GUN CAN PLAY [1967] . The film remains watchable, thanks also to a notable score from Carlo Savina; it does, however, include a couple of almost campy moments – one in which a badman is set on fire when a Mexican girl he has attempted to rape breaks a lantern over his head, but he takes care to repeatedly shoot her prior to expiring himself(!); another is when Roland's thin cigar is lit by a shot fired from the gun being handled by non-practitioner Richard Harrison!

LONG DAY OF THE MASSACRE (1968)-In Italian with english subs, letterboxed print. At last! One of the rarest spaghetti westerns finally makes its appearance. Peter Martell and Glenn Saxon star in this standard spaghetti western directed by Alberto Cardone under the pseudonym "Albert Cardiff." Manuel Servano and Daniela Giordano also appear in what seems to be a typical tale of revenge and justice, culminating in the massacre of the title. When sheriff Joe Williams (Martell) is unjustly accused of the murder of a young couple, which was in reality committed by the Mexican "La Muerte", Joe becomes a wanted man. Joe manages to steal and hide the loot from a bank robbery committed by the Mexican gang, but then is captured by them, but the new sheriff (Saxson), Joe's friend, is on their trail. Michele Lacarenza composed the soundtrack, and skilled cinematographer Aldo Greci provided the visuals.

RED BLOOD YELLOW GOLD (1967)-Beautiful letterboxed print. George Hilton, George Martin and EDD Byrnes are three bandits who have joined the Southern ranks during the Civil War. They're caught selling guns to the Union and are sentenced to a firing squad. A general saves their lives at the last minute, offering them a chance at freedom by retrieving a fortune in gold. Supervised by a Confederate officer they go in pursuit, but there are dangerous competitors in the field. Despite the title, this is an easy-going Spaghetti Western with tongue firmly in cheek; plot-wise, it’s basically THE DIRTY DOZEN (1967) out West and with the Civil War for backdrop – as a trio of adventurers (George Hilton, George Martin and Edd Byrnes) are saved from the gallows, so that they can retrieve gold stolen from the Confederates by a renegade band of soldiers led by Gerard Herter (from Sergio Sollima’s marvelous THE BIG GUNDOWN [1966]). Along the way, they also have to deal with a band of Mexican outlaws (who, naturally, covet the gold): interestingly, this is presented as a family unit (albeit a loutish and ugly-looking bunch) controlled by an old woman who all she seems to do is stuff herself with food!

Fun ensues in town and at the local Spanish mission where they are taken for federal agents, mistakenly so identified by Trinity's young love interest, daughter of the aforementioned family.

After his brother is tortured and killed by bandits, Gringo joins the group to eliminate them one by one from the inside! A nice looking and somewhat offbeat movie starring Lang Jeffries with Femi Benussi, Fernando Sancho, Carlo Gaddi, Rubén Rojo, Aldo Sambrell .A unique Euro-western with the hero as an astrologist who wears a leopard suit. Sure, there’s a revenge theme, but overall this is a different brand of spaghetti. It’s very moody and feels like a Euro-horror film in spots. All in all an amazing film!

JOHNNY HAMLET (1968)-LETTERBOXED PRINT AND NOW AVAILABLE ENGLISH DUBBED! Director: Enzo G. Castellari and starring Andrea Giordana, Gilbert Roland, Horst Frank, Ennio Girolami, Ignazio Spalla, Françoise Prévost. Castellari made an outstanding Spaghetti Western on the basis of Corbucci's idea based on Shakespeare's Hamlet. Johnny Hamlet, actually only the originally intended title, which does have a "Django - ..." title in German, stuns through its style and technical cunning. Especially the latter is a factor that makes this film so great, foremost regarding editing and photography. Although the story is very predictable, it is full of suspense and carried out nicely. Especially Horst Frank is a baddy par excellence. The sinister atmosphere of this film is supported by De Masi's great score and a very fitting production design. A classic Spaghetti Western full of memorable moments, for many fans a real gem of the genre.

PRAY TO GOD AND DIG YOUR GRAVE (1968)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Directed by edoardo Mulargia and starring Robert Woods, Jeff Cameron, and Cristina Penz. This is a pretty good Italian western for the undemanding viewer. The first half of the film is extremely intriguing and violent; there's a man buried in the ground up to his neck whose head gets trampled by horses in a most gruesome fashion, a rape of an innocent woman, and much time devoted to the mournful mother of the victims. She walks across the border to Texas to find her other son Fernando, who, along with his sidekick Paco, will avenge his siblings' deaths and kill the evil tyrant Don Enrique, who is responsible for these deaths (and many other atrocities).

30 WINCHESTERS FOR EL DIABLO (1965)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. "This Man Can't Die" director Gianfranco Baldanello's Spaghetti western "30 Winchesters for El Diablo" ranks as an entertaining frontier yarn about a mysterious straight-shooting stranger and the eponymous Mexican bandit who rides roughshod over the border town of Canyon City with his army of trigger-happy pistoleros. Baldanello directs this oater—actually his first film at the helm—with a modicum of style. During the first five minutes, he frames a man pleading for his life with the camera set up so that the beggar is framed between the legs of the villain who is about to kill him. A gunshot rings out and the beggar slumps over, but it is the villain who crumples from a bullet and the beggar discovers that he is alive. Along with his scenarists, including Alfredo Varelli, Adriano Micantoni of "The Colt is My Law," and Alfonso Brescia of "When the Devil Holds A Gun," Baldanello packs several surprises into the screenplay, the biggest of which occurs about three-fourths of the way into the action. Cark Mohner stars.

There's hidden treasure, a cast full of genre veterans (including Armando Calvo, Monica Randall, and Eduardo Fajardo), but very little else to please fans of either Westerns or director Umberto Lenzi, who made his name with gruesome cannibal movies like Mangiati Vivi and Cannibal Ferox later in his career. Spartaco Conversi co-stars with Raf Baldassare and Lisa Halvorsen.

 STRANGER FROM PASO BRAVO (1968)-BEAUTIFUL UPGRADED WIDESCREEN PRINT OF THIS ANTHONY STEFFEN WESTERN. This is a solid spaghetti western that has a great cast and lots of cool Euro-western style. The music is very good. Some parts of the score are very minimalist, using only a single guitar. A couple of other parts sound kind of creepy, almost like they are using a Theremin. All of it sounds very appropriate for a spaghetti western. It also has a great typical spaghetti-style opening theme. Anthony Steffen does a fine job as the revenge seeking stranger Gary Hamilton. Anyone who thinks his unemotional performance in "Django the Bastard" (aka "Stranger's Gundown") was unintentional should see this movie, because here he proves that he can show feelings if the part requires it. Eduardo Fajardo is great as the scumbag town boss Acombar. Here he plays a character that is more over-the-top than his usually more refined villainous roles. I love the part where he tells his men to bring him Gary Hamilton's head because he wants to see it on a pole.

DEATH AT OWELL ROCK (1967)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Rare Western by Riccardo Freda. Lawrence White returns to the town of Owell Rock to avenge the murder of his father, but in order to carry out his plans, he changes his name and arranges for another man to pose as "Lawrence White." Mark Damon, Pamela Tudor, and Stephen Forsyth star. While it lacks the opera-like style and sweep of the best Italian westerns, this minor entry in the cycle has its compensations. By concentrating on a limited number of characters playing out most of their story in the confines of a small town in the Arizona Territory, "Owell Rock" achieves a bit more depth than is often found in movies of this sort.

BROTHERS BLUE (1973)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Extremely obscure Spaghetti western by Luigi Bazzoni and starring Jack Palance and Tina Aumont. A group of young desperados is hunted for several years by a determined bank guard (Jack Palance). Both the gang's actions, and their demise in a climactic finale (à la "Bonnie and Clyde") are very graphic and violent. Bazzoni and Storaro did an excellent job staging scenes, creatively using color, light, shadow, and angles to make this movie visually appealing. Vitorio Storaro is a legendary cinematographer, noted for his philosophy regarding the color, the use of which is stunning in this film. There is a stunning sequence in a jail with blue light falling through the windows across the profile of Palance which should be one of the iconic images of the genre, up there with the final gunfights in the Dollars movies or of Django dragging his coffin in sea of mud. Storaro's most famous work includes shooting Appocalypse Now and The Last Emperor, for both of which he won Oscars.

KILL THEM ALL AND COME BACK (1968)-LETTERBOXED PRINT.Clyde MacKay (Chuck Connors) and his five mercenaries infiltrate a Confederate army camp. Systematically, they eliminate any opposition without actually killing anybody. Stealthily, they converge on the post headquarters and surround the impressed Southern General Hood and his Counter-Intelligence Office, Captain Lynch (Frank Wolff) who had earlier doubled the guard for just such a contingency. This opening sequence resembles a similar scene from "The Dirty Dozen" where Lee Marvin's criminal misfits proved their value by capturing Robert Ryan's U.S. Army Command post during a crucial war games exercise. Nevertheless, Captain Lynch expresses his doubts about MacKay's men: "What is it makes you think we can trust such a band of bandits, killers, and convicts." MacKay retorts: "Isn't that just what you need? Don't underestimate them." MacKay's misfits include an expert with dynamite, Deker (Leo Anchóriz of "Seven Guns for the MacGregors") who is the smartest of the bunch; Blade (Giovanni Cianfriglia, a.k.a., Ken Wood of "Superago and the Faceless Giants") a half-breed who hurl s knives like a wizard casts spells; lightning fast gunman Hoagy (Franco Citti of "The Godfather"); muscle bound Bogart (Hércules Cortés of "Spy Today, Die Tomorrow") who "is strong enough to break a man in two"; Kid (Alberto Dell'Acqua of "Son of Zorro"), will kill at the drop of a hat.

TASTE OF VIOLENCE (1961)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. Directed by Robert Hossein. A revolutionary leader holds up a train to kidnap the daughter of the president wanting to trade her for fifty of his fellow revolutionaries held prisoner by the federal army. Along with two of his lieutenants, he traverses the hostile country to bring the girl to the revolutionary headquarters where very soon the three men fall out... Released in ’61, set in a fictitious Latin American country, and filmed in former Yugoslavia, this film by director/actor/writer Robert Hossein, definitely is a forerunner of the spaghetti western genre. Not only is it a prototype of the so-called Zapata westerns, it is also very interesting in regard to Hossein’s own 'Cemetery without cross', reckoned among the great films of the genre. The Taste of Violence breathes the same melancholic atmosphere as Hossein’s masterpiece. It also reflects a similar pessimistic view on the human condition.(...), Also stars Hossein, Mario Adorf and Giovannia Ralli.

Due to a massacre the bunch committed in the beginning they are hunted by unionists and government officials. Corbucci manages to make the characters who are basically all criminals very likable and I was more often than not at the edge of my seat when the bunch run into trouble. Probably THE WILD BUNCH from Peckinpah got some inspirations from here and Corbucci's COMPAÑEROS can be considered a later variant with a different mood.
