Djurado (Giovanni Narzisi / 1967)

I have not found a topic for the film, so I open one time. :wink:

Weak movie with a very cheap look.
Montgomery Clark is like a mixture of Giuliano Gemma and George Ardisson. The music fits unfortunately not in a SW. In addition, the film is unbalanced to me. There are a lot harder scenes, but also many light-hearted action.

Certainly there are worse movies in this genre. And surely one must remember the low budget. But overall not my kind of SW.

I have seen a Fandub. Source is an Italian television recording. With selectable English subtitles. The picture quality is ok. Unfortunately, there are some image jumps. But on the whole acceptable. Thanks to another SW fan. :wink:

The name Montgomery was quite popular in those days: Montgomery Wood, Montgomery Ford, Montgomery Clark …

Makes you wonder what this fellah might have been doing in the sixties…

Never heard of the guy either
According to IMDB he didn’t have a prosperous career, only a handful of movies, sometimes listed as the actor who played ‘the piano player’ (usually not a major role in a movie)

Its performance is not outstanding. So an exceptional acting talent he did not. And for a SW he has a more youthful face. No stubble, no dirty face … as usual.

Average one in all departments, and the lead does have a bit of a baby style face.

Hello friends, this film is a little gem! Hart, some funny and good actors! A cool Pistolero, the whole enlivened by looking like a gravedigger who drinks like beer too! And Luis Induni as a villain!
You should absolutely get it!

A little gem ? Really ? I think not really.
I think the actors are an big problem.
But nice to see you here. :wink:

I think so, was very surprised…
Nice to see you too!

I hope the people unterstand my bad Scool English :stuck_out_tongue:


(The Stranger) #11

Many here do not speak perfect English.
Stay cool, my English is probably worse than yours. :wink:

The Stranger’s first entry here pretty much sums up my feelings about this one. Clark comes across as a cheap Gemma substitute but lacks Bello Giuliano’s class. I couldn’t help feeling that this was one of those movies where the producers secured the cash before they actually had a script or any real idea of what they would make.

Some whacky character names didn’t help either although they did at least raise a smile. Kangaroo? Tucan? Golden Poker? ;D

I saw this ‘hidden gem’ recently. I felt like a prospector who thought he’d found a gold nugget, but when he rubbed off the dirt it turned out to be a turd.

A charmless hero, the most trite of scripts, anonymous direction, sub-standard action, lousy acting…

I quite liked the theme tune, but after it was played countless times, even that began to grate.
