This looked like a lost gem: Charles Bronson starring in a black and white Cinemascope Western early in his career!
It starts out quite good with well staged action and a HIGH NOON style drama (I.e. cowardly townsfolk turn against lawman).
But, it soon turns into a predictable melodrama with a predictable climax
Low budget production doesn't help matters.

 Worth a look.
Bluray on Olive Films.

5/10

This should be added to the American Westerns index

 Fwiw I don't think the different versions of GBU are definitive " director's cuts" either.
MY version would be the BEST one!
😅

I've already commented on the quality of the film  in previous posts.
The various versions are pretty similar.
I don't think it's a " butchered masterpiece"

Afaik the version released in theaters was prepared by Sam.
So, yes it's the DC.

They should have left the theatrical version alone.
It is the " director's cut".

Another great bluray from Arrow.

Can't say the same for this retread of a wagon train worth of SW tropes.
The openng scene is the best but even that is marred by the inappropriately lovely music.( reminiscent of DYS)
4^10

The second RINGO film he
from the great Arrow bluray.
Not really a sequel but a much more engaging character for Gemma.

Way above average Italian Western.
Seems to be partly based on.the latter part of Homer'  ODDYSEY!

Another great bluray from Arrow!

Well made film with excellent production values.
Made in a semi- serious manner with realistic action and brutal violence.
I always liked Gemma but for some reason he didn't click with me in this character.
The villains were cliches and the women beautiful.
Great title song by Morricone.

Better than average Italian Western but only an average Western

Just a heads up that this I is now on bluray.
Beautiful print and, best of all its in STEREO!

The day I watched this several states were pummeled by tornadoes!
Weird.

The last of the wonderful Arrow Releasing " Vengeance" bluray set.

This could have been titled " Dr. Phibes Goes West".

The dubbing was quite good for a change and Kinski being the lead was a pleasant surprise.

Unxceptional.

5/10

Way above the average SW in quality.
It's a real movie, not a " spaghetti Western".
The script is so much better than 99 percent of these films.

Not surprised Stanton undrvalues it; he thinks PECOS BILL is ORIGINAL;)

Third film in the excellent Arrow " Vengeance Classics" set.

Wow! Where did this come from.
?!
Superbly made with a well constructed  and unpredictable script.
Extremely violent, excessively so.
But, I like that the film is played a
straight; no humor or fantastic gunplay.
Fine cast with many new faces.
A film that stands out among Italian westerns in many ways!.

Btw Kane looks alot like Dean Martin.
Ricky looks like John Phillip Law.
8/10
