Same copy - and pretty much same sort of feelings about this. Gave it 3 stars in the poll which seems fair.
It’s got a cat n’ mouse, buddy-ish, older wiser man/young buck thing going, with the role of cat getting regularly reversed and double-cross a-plenty, as Owl (John Ireland) and Johnny Sweet (Mark Damon) chase some $200,000 in gold ingots via an uneasy alliance with a couple of mexi-baddies, and later a gang of ‘em led by Sir Fernando. At one point ol’ mexi-Eddie Fajardo gets slugged and his ‘partner’ says GBU-stylee “The men in this world are of two kinds - ones that look at gold and ones that take it”.
The Dollars homage continues as there’s a pocket watch (with a history) thrown into the mix as well. (Must remember to mention this on the Pocket watch thread.)
There’s loads of regular spag-ugly faces to cheer our way through a decent enough yarn, and a great double-dealing femme-fatally mexi-bitch in the rather shapely form of Monica Randall as Maria to cheer us further.
On a side note - the database comment is wrong about Owl being a bounty hunter hired to find the outlaw Johnny. Neither of them play these roles.
It’s been a while since anyone posted… I wonder whether there’s a better version out there yet? The full-screen, subbed version is ok, but the few night scenes were a bit painful to watch.
Worth a look though hombres…
