I'm surprised no one has come forward with a tribute (he died on Nov. 12th). Do I gather, then, that the consensus of this board is that he was beneath comment?

His death has been mentioned and discussed on other boards which cover the gamut of Euro cinema.

One of my favorite directors of the SW genre! His films "Blindman" and "Get Mean" came out of left field, but were extremely entertaining!

RIP

Alright! I just picked up Baldi's "Hate Thy Neighbor." I havent seen it yet, but it looks really good!
Anyone else seen this film?

It was just average to me. An awesomely inventive credits sequence though. Some good scenes but much better than DJANGO THE LAST KILLER, the film it's paired with on the WE dvd. Some interesting duel scenes with men fighting with long metal claw weapons. Still just an average western though. Not bad but not that great.

THE FORGOTTEN PISTOLERO is my favorite Baldi western.

A very nice man. KOCH-Media, the German DVD-Label I used to work for, interviewed him just two years ago. I made a 42 min. documentary out of that , THE WESTERN WORLD OF FERDINANDO BALDI, which is included on the German SE DVD for BLINDMAN. He gave great insights on how he was influencial on Terence Hill's career, on TEXAS ADDIO, working in Almeria, on his relationship with Tony Anthony and especially on the making of the underrated BLINDMAN.
