If it was the RHV box it's an italian release. Damn fine movie both of those. Big budget excitement as opposed to what these movies usually got. Some fine action and good stunts one big setpiece involves a train. The fact that everything comes easy for the oldsters is part of the comedic aspects of the movie. 

Yeah that was the set AC. I've never really been comforable with comedic westerns and if I understand correctly these two lean towards more that area.

Yes, that is true, but they are quite extravagant productions that really show off what the genre is capable of had there been more like these.

I watched it last night after about 40 years since I saw it in the theathre. It is clearly inferior to Seven guns for the MacGregors, but nevertheless it is still very watchable. The musical score from Ennio Morricone is (as usual) pretty good. Most of the score is from Seven Guns... and a few fragments have been recycled from A Fistful of Dollars and Bullets don't argue, plust a couple of wonderful new themes. Here is a Youtube clip containing the Frank James (AKA "the Terror of the West") scene...priceless.

The TCM version is around 95 minutes long, so a few scenes must have been trimmed from the original. Also, witch exception of the opening scene (titles) which is in widescreen, the rest of the movie is in full screen (aaargghhh!!!). Nevertheless, I enjoyed it very much, but I hope at some time to get hold of the widescreen version.

6.5/10

amazon has the Italian disc and I believe ebay does as well. There was also a box set with three or four of the Ripley DVD's.
