It's a political allegory, not a factual film. It bears absolutely zero resemblance to the real-life assassination of Garfield.

I know that the score (very nice, by the way) is from Bacalov; but does anyone know if the singer is Edda Dell'Orso? It sounds to me a lot like her, but as far as I can see she is not credited anywhere.

Well, I haven't heard any opinions on whether the singer is (or is not) Edda dell'Orso..... Sad

Just watched this. Not a great movie, maybe not even a good one. First off: it's not a Western, it's a political thriller, secondly: it's a boring thriller. Too many characters, none of which are interesting. The movie dies when he president dies.

The most interesting thing was to notice the OUATITW sets (even the mirror was still on "sweetwater" wall!).

5/10

I basically agree the sets were interesting (liked seeing an Almerian railroad trestle, though an iron one would be anachronistic ) and the gunfight by candle light innovative.

Yeah, it was, but not anymore the second time around. Wink

Almost two years later, I am still waiting for some opinions about this.....

Rather than wait so long, why didn't you just sit on a plane and go ask Edda Dell'Orso in person? Kiss

That may be my next step if everything else fails, especially if some kind soul pays for the airfare. I may even try contacting Luis Enriquez Bacalov, I think I saw his contact e-mail somewhere.

Meanwhile, and until such time that someone submits irrefutable proof against my assertion, I hereby declare the beautiful voice in The Price of Power as being EDDA's.  Cheesy Evil

The Western genre is fluid enough for me to accomodate it as both.

Well, I'm afraid that I may have to change my view. Some kind sould in a different forum pointed out to me that
"The original CAM non-commercial lp credits "4+4 di Nora Orlandi" on the label, a vocal group similar to "I Cantori Moderni di Allessandroni", so a different voice here."

Mystery solved.  Smiley
