Rub me the wrong way, and I'll go off in your face

I could have asked Lizzani: I met him two saturdays ago walking in the vicinity of his home here in Rome. I asked him about his autobiography announced in July but still nowhere to be found in the bookshops.

Is their a chance you'll see him again?

I don't know, he's late in his 80's.

  Seems like this one causes opinions at both ends of the spectrum, and I guess I fall on the positive side.  Not a great SW, but I did enjoy it.  Thomas Hunter just seems out of place with his constant screaming and overacting.  Dan Duryea, don't quite know what to make of this, an odd addition for sure.  SPOILER  So was he working for the army? SPOILER  The high point was definitely Henry Silva as the pyschpathic gunslinger with a maniacal laugh.  And any movie with Nicoletta Machiavelli is ok by me.

  The action scenes were good including the big showdown at the end in abandoned Austin although I did laugh at Duryea's "I'm right here, yellow bellies!" line.  And I think Hunter may be one of the more abused spaghetti anti-heroes.  All those beatings and stabbings, that tattoo scene was just wrong. 

  I did have a question about the music by the famous Leo Nichols.  It was an average score, but it's different from what I heard in The Hills Run Red trailer.  Anybody know what music that is?

  Anyhoo, I'd give this one a 6/10.  Better than a lot of second-tier spaghettis I've seen, but not great.  Worth renting for sure if you're wavering. O0

What about me?

Just watched.
Alex Cox made a good observation that the film is clearly. inspired by ONE EYED JACKS.
Interesting that the hero is Confederate thief and the initial villains are Union soldiers.
Very violent and surprisingly devoid of humour or ' characters'.

I really like the Morricone score- I have the ost.
