I see that for a few of Weissers "reviews" we're even lucky to get a sentence about the plot and he seems to revel in boring useless information like other genres/tv series that certain actors have appeared in and keeps repeating himself,for instance for all of the reviews  for the 3 sw's starring Edd Byrnes(all good btw Wink ) he says that he is a "U.S. television star of the long-running Warner Bros '77 Sunset Strip series" and for Craig Hill he can't resist keep mentioning Whirlybirds.No wonder the book is mega-thick!!

he does the same for Adios Sabata. The review is mostly a biography of singer/actor Dean reed.

anyway... here is a double whammy of Weisser's lies...


In his Grand Duel review (the big showdown) Weisser says that the young pup which LVC is keen on protecting is actually named "Newland" (in the movie its Philip) and the actor who potrays him is Horst Frank.

actually...Horst Frank plays the main villian David. Philip (or as weisser puts him "newland") is played by Peter O' Brein.

whats funny is that Horst Frank appears in many more spaghetti westerns and weisser actually gets his name right in the rest of the book.

You get more of an idea of a sw's plot from somewhere like the Eurotrash site where at least you get a whole paragraph.
In For A Few Dollars Less,Weisser calls the Indio character Blackie-he's actually called El Messicano.Black is the name of the banker.

The best book by far i've seen is still Howard Hughes"Once Upon A Time In The Italian West"(his Pocket Essentials guide is also excellent covering 33 films) .It doesn't cover every single sw title but instead has very long and detailed chapters on 20 key films but within these chapters there are many paragraphs and sentences  referencing several dozen other sw's.It really is a compulsive and extremely readable cover to cover book.I borrowed Fraylings old book from the early 1980's about sw's but this is very dull read in comparison and he limits himself far too much to Leone.

As well as the Gianni Garko Holy Ghost debacle it looks like Weisser has made a clanger with another sw-Death Played The Flute.
I watched this last night(Firecracker, high on crapometer but also entertaining  Roll Eyes ) and it was screened under the title "Requiem For A Bounty Killer".In Weissers book he has an entry for Death Played The Flute for 1970,directed by Elo Pannaccio but theres also another entry for "Requiem For A Bounty Killer" for 1972,directed by Mark Welles but it seems that this is just an English name Pannaccio went by!
    Heres the imdb link:-

"Requiem For A Bounty Killer" for 1972,
somebody made a porno out of this by using clips from the film and inserting sex scenes in it Roll Eyes

I mention it on my "crap reviews" thread. You can find it somewhere in Weisser's book. not sure of the title.

Yeah i meant to mention this:-
Porno-Erotic Western(1978)
They replaced Pannaccio/Welles directors credit with i guess the fictitious Gerard B Lennox and inserted hard core sex scenes.Sounds like a version to avoid Sad

I'm not sure if this isn't another Weisser gaff about being the same movie but with added porn because the credits don't tally!!! Shocked
But Gerard B Lennox is just another pseudonym for Pannaccio it seems.

Porno Erotico Westerm alas, passed me by about the end of the '80's on a local channel. I've beem looking for it ever since. What I remember are some close-ups of Gordon Mitchell.

Looks like Alex Cox has been reading to much of weisser's book for information...

In his ITV4 intro for "The grand duel" (aka "the big showdown") he says that the Philip vermeer character is played by german actor Horst Frank Grin

Weisser's pack of lies is contaminating one of the most well known spaghetti fans out there.

I'd better be careful with Cox's 10,000 Ways To Die then! Roll Eyes
Has anyone else been reading this?-its quite a different approach to any other sw book i've read and Cox goes to great lengths to analyse(perhaps too much) every single iota of Italian westerns and you definately need to have seen every film he discusses because he makes several references to the lesser knowns films like Arizona Colt or Minnesota Clay.

The latest gaff i've spotted is with Matalo.Weisser suggests that Castel is hired by Wells Fargo to kill 3 bandits who have robbed a stagecoach of its gold.Theres absolutely no reference or evidence of this-the first we see of him is him lying half dead in the desert and is rescued by a blond haired woman and lead thirstily into the ghost town where he gets the crap beaten out of him by bad guys he's supposedly meant to kill.
Also the betrayed outlaw Bart -Weisser claims he's dumped in a river when really he's left lying dead or dying in the desert. Shocked

My latest find is Weissers plot description for Sartana Kills Them All:-
"The story remains a cluttered tale of vigilante justice as Sartana attempts to stop a mysterious gang of gun traffickers who are raiding Cavalry forts and stealing weapons"
OK there are vigilante types in pursuit of Sartana who is himself like 3 other parties trying to get his hands on $100,000 from a robbery but there aren't any "mysterious gangs",no gun traffickers in sight nor any Cavalry forts showing up in the film.In fact the only thing Weisser gets right is Sartana's name which ain't that difficult considering the title? Grin
