Title: Wanted Johnny Texas (1967)
Post by: titoli on March 05, 2009, 12:09:19 AM

Comment at italian db is enthusiastic but I agree only partially. The novelty here is the hero who is a sadistic cold-blooded killer. Other good points: the very good rhythm of the first 20 minutes, Rosalba Neri's naked tits (she showed he naked body in other genres but not in western, as far as I know), the finale is quite original. Unfortunately the middle part is slow moving and unoriginal, not as violent as the rest of the movie. Cardboard caverns used for peplums and unnecessary studio scenes we could gladly do without. Sancho, Rangers colonel (did such grade really exist ?) send maverick adventurer JT on a mission to destroy Howard Ross gang. After many peripeties he will make it.
I can't remember the OST. 6\10
