Without a doubt my favorite Sartana, among my favorite spags period
By means of a kick-off of Last Caress’s WESTERN MONTH I rewatched and reviewed the Hilton Sartana
It was a pleasant rewatch. I had not watched a Sartana in a couple of years, so I can’t say in what place it’ll be on my Sartana list, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be bottom.
Actually, I was pleasantly surprised. Hilton lacks some of Garko’s badass image, but he does a pretty good job here
I planned to rewatch all Sartana’s in the next couple of weeks, probably in reverse (or random) order (I think A Cloud of Dust … will be next, because it’s closest in spirit to this one)
I always confuse this and Fistful of Death for some reason.
Must be something about the title …
Jonathan, any information about the film’s original runtime?
92 min is the longest available version, but I think the Anica.it site gave it with 99 min.
Submitted to the Committee for the Theatrical Review on 20 July 1970, rated ALL with no cuts, checked film length 2530 metres: 92 minutes is correct!
Bruckner says 2720 m though. Is that from Anica?
Most probably Bruckner’s source is Anica: it seems reasonable to suppose that in some cases their data concerning film lengths refer to provisional pre-release cuts, because otherwise there is no explanation for so many errors/inaccuracies.
Ahh, now the first time you give an explanation for all these deviations. A possible one.
Just watched this for the first time (Wild East DVD). I thought it was pretty good and very well shot.
While updating my file for this movie with Umberto Di Grazia, I ran across:
And as mentioned in another thread.
He plays Hoagie who the DB has as Armando Calvo
And Maurizio Mannoia…
Second best of the official Sartana films for me. Watched this last night and realised I need to revise my alternative top 20.
So it is part of the BluRay box, just wanna make sure everyone gets that box
See the BluRay news topic…
