Dam, missed the intro last night. Did Cox discuss anything about writer Franco Solinas?

He definately did give a mention to Solinas including the other movies he provided storylines/scripits for-i'm sure he mentioned Burn and one or two others!

Anyone see this film? I thought it was awesome. Its like one of those rare treasures that most people will never see, especially in the USA.  Makes me feel that there is still hope for the film industry, I really think that european films are where it at. Gian Maria Volente is an amazing actor. I ordered "Day of Anger"....looking forward to seeing it. These films are becoming more and more rare.

Bullet for the General or Quien Sabe? is a great film. My favorite part is in the beginning with the captain crucified on the railroad tracks. Great scene.

This is one spaghetti western I have yet to see. Is it worth buying?

If you cannot obtain the Anchor Bay release there are a number of dvds from other countries for this title. Try xploitedcinema.com.

Thanks Arizona Colt. I found it though through BarnesandNoble.com. They usually have a lot of these sorts of titles.

I finally recieved A Bullet For The General and watched it. I was impressed. Good, solid spaghetti western with a surprising ending.

****spoiler****question below if you haven't seen the film.





Do you think the reason for El Chucho killing Niņo at the end was for the soul purpose of Niņo killing his brother El Santo? I mean you all seen it for yourself, Niņo saved Chucho's life. Santo was going to kill him, and then recieved a lot of gold from Niņo in return. I don't get why Chucho killed him. In my opinion, I don't think he respected Niņo all along. I think he would of killed and robbed him even if he didn't kill his brother. That's just my opinion. What do you think?

That's very true. I was surprised by the ending myself. I honestly thought Chucho was getting on that train.

A brilliant ending that is certainly worth analyzation.

I have a theory that Chuncho never believed in the "cause" of the revolution (He stole arms to sell, not to help the peons) but he finally does at the very end. Notice he gives the money to a peon after killing Tate shouting "Don't buy bread with that mister! Buy dynamite!".


He sells his soul to the "devil" (Bill Tate) but later, seeing the error of his ways, rectifies his mistake. It's totally about redemption.
