Arizona Colts  review:-

GOD FORGIVES, I DONíT- 1967-Guiseppi Colliziís first western was a huge hit in Italy and starred Terence Hill and Bud Spencer together for the first time playing it straight save for a couple of scenes. Here, they lay the blueprint for the TRINITY films and their numerous numbskull comedies to follow. Frank Wolff is noteworthy as the maniacal Bill San Antonio. Quite a bit of violence and shortly thereafter, Hill would forsake violent movies forever focusing his career doing family friendly movies. Unlike Spencer however, Hill could carry a movie on his own. Followed by two lesser sequels.

Well I've just ordered this from xploited so I'll wait for the (FINALLY) widescreen one. That's great it's on US television though.

This was damn good.

I think this is Frank Wolff's best spaghetti role as the talkative villain.

Had the two other "Cat Stevens" entries been as good as this one, I wouldn't be the only one to consider Giuseppe Colizzi one of the top directors of the genre.

This trilogy is also one of the few of the genre with actual continuity.
In the beginning of ACE HIGH (the sequel to this film) their is a mention of the deceased villain from the first movie and the money aquired from GFID is put into a bank. Making Hill and Spencer the same characters.

I would very much like to see the cut "comedy version" of GOD FORGIVES...I DON'T.
As I can't see how this was made into a comedy.

Well I watched this up until it froze & blue screened my computer (just after they find the gold)  Cry.

I agree with everyones assessment, its pretty good, I enjoyed the cinematography which was great. Frank Wolff is a tad too talkative but you can let it slide for the most part.

That's seems to be the only way you can watch it properly (Silenzio and Banjo didn't have a problem with their copies).

I wave the flag for poor Colizzi for decades (he made only 5 films before he died at the age of 53, as I recall..).
Even the Italians do not rate him high, partly because he was overshadowed by the succuss of the Barboni films I presume.

His visual style was special, content-wise he had great ideas to make westerns a bit differently than the others.
It was him who urged Carlo Pedersoli to act in DIO PERDONA, IO NO - he couldn't find a 2nd lead that big & heavy and still capable of doing the action scenes (Carlo was an ex-athlete, the unbeaten Italian swimchampion and an idol in the 50's before he became a song composer, publicist and TV-producer. His father-in-law was Giuseppe Amato, producer of some of the greatest films ever produced in Italy, LA DOLCE VITA & LADRI DI BICICLETTE among others).

I can't agree that the sequels were less good. On the contrary, his style developped and he became more secure directing - after all DIO PERDONA was his debut film as director. I QUATTRO DELL'AVE MARIA appears to be a bit long on DVD these days. That's partly because of the missing silverscreen. I saw it a couple of times in the cinema, it belongs there and suffers the most of his films when not seen in a theatre. BOOT HILL is a cult film. Not a strong cult that follows it, but over the years I met people who got the fact that it is one of the most unusual entries of the genre. With that purely visual first 20 minutes, almost no dialogue at all, Rusticchelli's jazzy experimental score. A lot of great things attached to it. But surely not for general taste. Colizzi is not so much interested in stories (except for maybe the first one, which is why that one is easier to like), he cares more for scenes, like Hawks' in HATARI! or RIO BRAVO.
