[quote=“Tom B., post:14, topic:670”]In my opinion the comedy westerns is what killed the Spaghetti western genre.
I love the Trinity films but when they started a subgenre of Spaghetti westerns they
took away all the relevance of the hard hitting films of the genre. Even the characters
like Ringo, Sabata and Sartana were satirized to the point the genre couldn’t make a
comeback. The hard hitting films of the late 1970s were as good as any in the genre.
If Mannaja, Silver Saddle and Keoma couldn’t revitalize the genre, nothing will.
I think the Golden Age of Spaghetti Westerns started with A Fistful Of Dollars and ended with My Name Is Nobody. Of course there are exceptions, I’m sure there are some comedy SWs I haven’t seen yet that will make me cringe, and Keoma and Mannaja are classics.
