Of Rafael Romero Marchents HANDS OF A GUNMAN,Weisser says Craig Hill is Galen Stark,a notorious outlaw who tries to settle down to a peaceful family life with his new bride Laura ,in a rural New Mexican community.However,the bounty hunters won't leave him alone.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin

Craig Hill is actually Dan Murphy but uses Richard Markey as an alias,and has been married for 4 years so his bride is hardly new.

No bounty hunters in sight i'm afraid,just a bunch of local ruffians called Castle,and a Sheriff Rogers who's trying to retrieve his kidnapped son from Murphy. Cheesy

For Mario Costa's THE BEAST Weisser tells us that Klaus Kinski is a sex crazed outlaw,Machete,who rapes and ravages his way across the west.

 Grin Grin Grin

In actual fact Kinski plays Crazy Johnny and Machete is the leader of a gang of Mexican bandits. Cheesy

Weissers write up for DON'T WAIT DJANGO...SHOOT!(1969):-

Django is hired by Mary and her father to avenge the death of Uncle Burke,an old cattle rancher,killed by wealthy land baron Don Alvarez and his henchmen.While Django and Diego are busy tracking down gang members Navarro and Chico,kingpin Don Alvarez raids the ranch,kidnapping Mary and killing her father.
In an odd plot twist,another band of outlaws led by a Mexican named Nico robs and kills Alvarez.Nico is about to rape Mary when Django rescues her and eliminates the intruding villain 


Though for once this description does bear a smiggen of resemblence Grin to the actual storyline here are the corrections:-

1.The murdered "cattle rancher"(its horses actually Cheesy) isn't Mary's uncle but is in fact her father and Mary is also Django's sister so no- one has been "hired".The "father" is in fact Uncle Don.
2.Django's partner is called Barrica and not Diego.
3.There isn't an outlaw called Nico,but Don Alvero hires someone called Hondo to do his dirty work ,and at no point does Hondo attempt to rape Mary.
4.What this review(ha ha) doesn't reveal is the $10,000 which everybody is trying to get their hands on.

Weissers "review" for MAN WHO CRIED REVENGE:-

Another variation on the "vengeance for a slaughtered family" theme with Steffen playing an avenging vigilante,Drake.He is searching for the 3 men who raped and killed his wife.However,he finds nothing but trouble.These men are in positionss of power and are "protected" by a wealthy land baron,but eventually he eliminates them one by one

Yeah Steffens in it alright,but theres no "slaughtered family",in fact his wife is very much alive!

Steffens character is actually Davy Flanagan who's suffering from amnesia following the Civil War and he's seeking vengeance on someone who stole his wife and identity.

Even though his plots are usually off you can't blame him for name changes. They always depend on which print he saw.

C'mon buddy,in this case it must be totally obvious to everybody that Weisser has never seen this movie and the name Drake is as much a fabrication as the rest of his write up.

I agree but sometimes (not very often) he gets the plot just about right but the names totally wrong. In those instances he must have seen another version of the movie. Either that or the synopsis he stole from was 99% accurate.

Just watched Leon Klimovskys RAISE YOUR HANDS...YOU'RE UNDER ARREST of which surprisingly Weissers synopsis is reasonably accurate.

However my doubts as to whether Weisser has actually seen this himself are raised by the complete lack of Aldo Sambrells name in the casting or synopsis Shocked Shocked Shocked .In fact Sambrells very substantial role as the  land baron Clayton(who Weisser calls Mancini) is creditted to Espartaco Santoni.In truth Santoni plays the black clad ranger called Dollar.

If I recall correctly, Weisser didn't like it.

Yes he made a detrimental comment about Leon Klimovskys westerns in general,but as i said if Weiser had really seen that particular western how could he possibly overlook Aldo Sambrell? Angry

With Gianni Crea's ON THE THIRD DAY ARRIVED THE CROW Weisser for once succeeds in a reasonably accurate synopsis but lets himself down badly by claiming that William Berger(The Crow) also  plays Crows  brother. Grin

I read a review of this film on imdb by someone who invested in a dvd of this on the strength of Berger playing a dual role as stated by Weisser. Angry

Crows brother was actually played by Dean Stratford. Roll Eyes

Of Umberto Lenzi's ALL OUT aka COPPERFACE(1968)  Weisser states John Ireland is the bounty hunter and Mark Damon is the misunderstood outlaw with a price on his head.There are other strange characters with names like the Owl and Copperface.

Ireland is actually the man called the Owl,and he is not a bounty hunter but in fact trying to clear the name of his brother framed for stolen gold. Grin

And Damon is no outlaw only as stated  in the movie"a gunman and a card shark". Cheesy

The only wanted men in the film are Mexicans Paco and Gomez. Roll Eyes

Of Sergio Merrole's TASTE OF DEATH(1968) Weisser says:-

cattle thieves take refuge in (and then take over) a Colorado mountain town.Retired sheriff Bill Ransom(John Ireland) finally decides to do something about about the hostile subjugation.He and his step-son Tony(Giovanna Petrucci) wage war on Scaif(Andrea Giordana) and the outlaws.When Tony is killed,the townspeople finally take up arms against the intruders.

The final showdown is particularly unique in the shrouded snow-covered silence of the Rockies


Sheriff Bill Ransom is actually played by Raymond Pellegrin who "decides to do something about it" immediately costing him his life. Grin

Tony was played by Andrea Giordana,Scaif by Bruno Corazzari and John Ireland played the part of Tonys real father as a member of Scaifs gang. Grin Grin

Tony is never killed. Grin Grin Grin

According to Howard Hughes this was shot in the Abruzzo National Park,near Rome.NOT the Rockies. Grin Grin Grin Grin

NIGHT OF THE SERPENT


Weisser clearly didn't see this movie. His review is a total fabrication with not even a tiny bit of truth in it.

I'll break this down... (what he wrote is in Italics)


"The Serpent" is a notorious bandit (Luigi Pistilli) who wreaks havoc on silver city when, attempting a bank robbery,he and his gang are trapped inside a saloon

Actually Luigi Pistilli plays a corrupt mexican soldier/lawmen who plots to kill a child for his inheritance. There is no bank robbery that EVER takes place in the film nor is there anybody called "The Serpent". Oh! and the setting is a mexican pueblo town (the same set as the mexican town in FIVE MAN ARMY) that doesn't seem to have a name. Hardly a "silver city".

The plot synopsis sounds similar to ADIOS HOMBRE

No it doesn't because the false synopsis you gave this film doesn't sound anything like "Adios Hombre".
