ok banjo as promised the first film reviewed.

chaplin meets python meets cartoons in the west!
petroni's strange version of the west starring tomas milian. the narritive is simple providence (milian) has captured hurricane smith (gregg palmer) and claims the reward. then the whole film revolves around them trying to out do one another. its a comedy SW, their are silly bits that don't work but their are also really funny moments that do. milian really shows his comedy talents as a chaplin type. his visual humour and timing is 1st class. moments in this film made me laugh out loud. of course if helps if you have a drink. for those who like their SW serious then this is not for you.
i had heard a lot of bad thinks about this film, but i really enjoyed it. completely mad. great stuff... onto the sequel.

Came across this still for the providence sequel on a Carol Andre website couple of days ago.



I personally havn't seen any of the 'Providence' films... but I was stunned to how close Milian comes to chaplin in this photo!

I couldn't decide whether I liked the first one or not, but I muttered in my review that I would still no doubt like to see the sequel!

Arizona Colts review:-

LIFE IS TOUGH, EH PROVIDENCE?-I really enjoyed this one a lot although it's a bit of a strange film. So much of it reminded me of Warner Bros. Looney Tunes as the film plays out like a live action cartoon which somewhat echoes BLAZING SADDLES that saw release two years later. Some of the jokes seemed to be aimed at italian sensibilities. As comedy is not universal, what may be funny to one culture will not be funny to another. Still the film was never boring and I was entertained for the duration of the picture and I hope the sequel sees release soon.

"La vita, a volte, molto dura, vero Provvidenza?" aka Life Is Tough, Eh Providence? (1972) Director: Giulio Petroni, with  Tomas Milian, and Gregg Palmer. Comedy Spaghetti with Milian playing Chaplin's "Little Tramp" as a Bounty Hunter named Providence, who has a con game a la GBU & Skin Game where he frees his bounty, and re cashes him in. Gregg Palmer playing outlaw Hurricane Smith turns the tables on Providence at least once, too much Chaplin shtick, too much slap shick, too much long.   5/10
