your right. Let me put a disclaimer on the first post.
Not to be too pedantic, but could you stop using "your right" for "you're right"? At least fix the title of this thread.......

The latest Weisser blooper for IN A COLTS SHADOW,a minor one but still a blooper.

Weisser's incorrectly states the town boss as being played by Conrado Sanmartin when in fact it was regular sw slimeball Franco Ressel. Grin

I was just looking at Weissers review of Garringo just after writing my short piece elsewhere.

Garringo "is ordered to bring the madman(Johnny) in,dead or alive"  and a little further on  "brings killer Johnny in.Dead"

Sorry,Weisser but Johnny's "friends" have already littered Johhny's body full of bullets before Garringo even gets the chance. Grin

Why not change the title of this thread to No Pity for Tom?

Well if there are plenty enough mugs like myself,FC,and Marco Leone who've bought the book at 30 apiece i suspect that Poor Tom is doing very well out of it thank you very much! Grin

Fortunately for Tom due to the dreadful quality of my dvd i wasn't able to see any bloopers in his review for No Graves On Boot Hill.

Well this next complete Weisser lie is totally unforgivable!

About Edoardo Mulargia's The Rewards Yours,The Mans Mine,Weissers says "in this film,Mulargia tells the story of a bounty hunter(Robert Woods) who agrees to capture an outlaw "live" but,unfortunately,he is forced to shoot the wanted man" and goes on to say "it's well worth the wait"

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

In actual fact Woods plays an alcoholic wanted man with a $10,000 bounty on his head who  is pursued by 5 bounty killers. Cheesy

This is what Mr Weisser says about Ben and Charlie.

Their wanderings have brought them to Desert City where they are mistaken for dangerous criminals.Enjoying the attention and notoriety,they encourage the scam  until an unscrupulous sheriff falsifies evidence(to protect himself) and puts them in prison.They manage to escape from jail and expose the sheriff,but in the end(after they lose all their ill gotten money and fame),Ben and Charlie are content in knowing "that they are rich in friendship"It almost makes your teeth hurt.Too sweet.

LIES,LIES,LIES!!!

Ben and Charlie are certainly robbing banks and casino's but there's no mistaken identity nor are they seeking "attention or notoriety",just the money.Neither is there a sheriff who puts them until jail so obviously they don't have to expose anyone.
They may lose their "ill gotten money" in the end,but Charlie is too busy throttling Ben to realise "that they are rich in friendship".

Too Sweet ?  Huh!! Too much bullsh*t.  Grin

Weissers summary about Rafael Romero Marchents CRY FOR REVENGE(1968) 

Two bounty hunters Johnny and Fred agree to help the widow Reed avenge her husbands death at the hands of a vicious,but elusive,outlaw gang

I don't think so!!! Grin

The widow Reed murdered her own husband ,there is absolutely no contact between her and the bounty hunters,and from the beginning wants the sheriff to run them out of town forever. Azn

Weissers also wrongly credits the musical score to Riz Ortolani instead of the true composer Marcello Giombini. Cheesy

Of Riccardo Freda's DEATH AT OWELL ROCK,Weisser states that :-

The witnesses(to a murder) are afraid to talk .They've all been threatened by town boss Harry Boyd.Eventually,Doc Lester befriends Lawrence(son of the murdered man) and together they confront the evil Boyd

Very strange!!! Grin Grin Grin

Harry Boyd is a quick on the draw drifter who helps Lawrence,and that Doc Lester was the man who murdered Lawrences family. Cheesy

Also we're told by Weisser that Mark Damon made many sw's including the very odd LET THEM REST(aka Requiescant).

Odder still that Damon never was in LET THEM REST but instead starred in Lizzani's other sw JOHNNY YUMA. Grin

A COFFIN FOR THE SHERIFF

Weisser's take:

Director Mario Caiano seems fascinated with the "sheriff against town boss" theme, especially if the sheriff is debilitated (I.E., town drunk becomes lawman in Ride and Kill) or indolent (Train for Durango) or fatefully preoccupied (Bullets don't Argue).

This time , it's the sheriff with the checkered past (Anthony Steffen) against the always ("I'm a respectable businessman") oily Eduardo Fajardo. Initially, the scared townspeople side with Russell (Fajardo) but eventually they come to the aid of the sheriff.

Bull$hit

In reality Steffen's character isn't even a town sheriff. He's a U.S. Marshall that infiltrates a gang of bank robbers to destroy the gang from the inside.
Fajardo doesn't play an "oliy businessman" but instead is one of the bank robbers. He's name isn't even Russell! Grin
The town's people come to the aid of nobody, in fact, they are just helpless victims kept in the background.

What's worse is Weisser even lies about another movie in this review.
Train for Durango doesn't have a Sheriff in sight Grin. And if you flip to page 326 you'll find that he doesn't mention a sheriff in his review of Train for Durango.

How surprising! Roll Eyes
................................................................
Not Weisser's fault but even the title is strange. The only Sheriff in the film is a minor character and is killed off towards the end, but nobody supplied him with a coffin(?). Why does the title (the original Italian title is the same) emphasize so much on the sheriff?

For once Weissers synopsis of I CAME,I SAW, SHOT(1968) isn't far of the mark but $400,000 is stolen from the bank and not $300,000   Cheesy

Of $5000 ON THE ACE(1965) Weissers says Clayton ( a gambler having acquired the rights to half a ranch) is greeted by siblings David and Helen and they welcome him,secretly hoping that he will help them in their ongoing conflict with the land grabbing  town boss,an attorney named Burke(Helmut Schmidt).

In actual fact the siblings couldn't be more unwelcoming to Claytons and Helen spends most of the movie trying to get Attorney Dundee(not Burke) to help get rid of him. Cheesy

And  Helmut Schmidt plays a bully boy called Jimmy Nero. Grin
