but he had... problems.  :-[


In jail no doubt.

I thought this movie was pretty good.
It's a series of great scenes between some dull scenes.
The John Ireland appearence being the most boring scene in the film.

the other plus is that this one has Morricone's signature lietmotif's for the different characters.

GREAT FILM.

In Germany KOCH-MEDIA did a beautiful release on all three Sollima Westerns a few years ago. A big box incl. a nice book on Italian Western. I made a one hour documentary about Sollima for the box. Unfortunately it is in Italian/German only. Sollima is a great story teller like the incident with van Cleef's horse on RESA (it had a hard-on and they couldn't film it), or the problems Volonte and Milian had with each other, which lead to a rather girlish fight (the Italians are good with shooting, but they don't like to box each other, adds Sergio..) - in which the only injured person appeared to be the girl from wardrobe who wanted to stop them...

It's interesting that some say RMR has an 'expensive' look, I'd say that shows the skill of Sollima & the crew as RMR actually had problems reagarding a much too low budget (Sollima's Producer Grimaldi couldn't do that show).

Of the trilogy it's my personal favorite. I guess merely because I love Mexican/desert themes like GIU LA TESTA, IL MERCENARIO & TEPEPA.. Also the soundtrack haunts me for 20 years now :).  Tomas Milian did sing the song himself in the film. In those days he also had a band and was a singer.

In general LA RESA DEI CONTI is regarded is the ultimate classic of the trilogy. But I think that is because it is such a classic story and it also belongs, like FAFDM & DJANGO, to the first big wave of the genre. Great film nevertheless. I'm not the biggest fan of the look of the film incl. wardrobe & design.

Which was much better in FACCIA A FACCIA. Probably the best of the series (minus Milian's wig, which is just impossible). FACCIA A FACCIA is fantastic in all aspects of film making. An unusual classy entry to a genre that produced in the end maybe 80% of bad films. Maybe a bit to demanding for the average western-audience...

So the trilogy is next to Leone's Dollar films the only exceptional one in the genre.
I still find it strange that SE SEI VIVO, SPARA (Django kill!) encounters such dislike here in this forum. Nobody
who really appreciates it ??

Seen it three times over the course of five years.
Never cared for it.
And good job on the box set. It's great. Had look over the doc once but of course couldn't understand a lot.

The glance that makes holes in the silver screen

Just watched this. A very entertaining, fast-paced, humor-driven Spaghetti Western. I think this is my second favorite non-Leone SW (behind My Name Is Nobody), but I haven't seen even a dozen of those so I'm not the person to trust in these things. I didn't understand this was a sequel until I read this thread; I didn't feel I was missing anything.

The script is funny, the plot is twisted enough but not too much and Milian is great in his role (I loved the scene with that shovel ;D). Somebody earlier in this thread mentioned the high production values...well quite frankly I thought the opposite, but sure they were high for a SW. Another flaw were IMO weak or unclear motives for some actions, but that could also have something to do with my slow brain...

Watched this again last night, and enjoyed it once again, could have had some more fleshed out story lines, but its a minor quibble  O0

Sergio Sollima's final Western is a sequel to The Big Gundown (1966). Tomas Milian's Cuchilio returns in Run, Man, Run! (1968), more lighthearted than its predecessor but no less entertaining.

Cuchilio (Tomas Milian) rescues revolutionary poet Ramirez (Jose Torres) from a Mexican jail. After bandits murder Ramirez, Cuchilio is entrusted to recover a Juarista gold stash in a Texas border town. A complicated race for the gold ensues, with government agents, Mexican bandits and a Salvation Army worker (Linda Veras) all vying for the money. To thwart his opponents, Cuchilio forms an alliance with Cassidy (Donald O'Brien), an American bounty hunter with his own agenda.

Run, Man, Run! loosely recalls The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with its convoluted treasure hunt and double-crossing anti-heroes. Sollima exchanges Gundown's politically-freighted seriousness for broad comedy. Cuchilio is both the progenitor and butt of jokes, whether pulling knives from his hair or having dynamite stuffed in his mouth. The subplot with Cuchilio's nagging fiancee (Chelo Alonso) proves more tiresome. Sollima's revolutionary setting mostly provides a colorful backdrop, akin to Sergio Corbucchi's A Professional Gun and Companeros.

But Run, Man, Run! never descends to They Call Me Trinity levels of silliness. The plot functions in time-honored Spaghetti fashion, each character forming alliances only to renege when convenient. Sollima stages handsome action scenes, from a horse chase in the mountains to the climactic nighttime showdown. With its lean narrative and surfeit of shootouts, Run, Man Run! is extremely entertaining.

Tomas Milian makes a much different Cuchilio here. No longer the crafty fugitive, he's now a lovable scamp with a heart. Stoic Donald O'Brien provides serviceable contrast. Linda Veras is amusingly prudish but Chelo Alonso's sultry whining proves annoying. Among the rogue's gallery of villains: Marco Gugliemi and Licnao Rossi as French mercenaries, Nello Pazafini as a bellowing bandit chief and Gianni Rizzo as Veras's slimy father. John Ireland puts in a brief cameo.

Run, Man, Run! may lack the complexity of Sollima's usual work but it's a fun ride all the same. Sometimes Western need only be light entertainment, and this Spaghetti hits the spot. 8/10

I believe it also may be one of the few Spaghetti Westerns that also have leitmotifs for the main characters, I know Linda Veras has one that I remember.

Don't know about Nicolai making that claim, but Sollima did. The interview is one of the extras in the Run Man Run DVD from Blue Underground.

Oops, then I most likely got it wrong ...
