Most folks hold Barboni’s original two films in high regard I supposed, great childhood memories on my end at least, watching these on TV afternoon programming :slight_smile: Welcome to the site, amigo

Yes, I still enjoy them and consider them the best of the comedy westerns. Faint praise I know.
I also found them excellent entry fodder for my kids when introducing them to spaghettis.

Welcome to the ‘SWDB’, Stephen.

Yeah, I love ‘They Call Me Trinity’, and ‘Trinity is Still My Name’…excellent fun featuring Hill and Spencer at their comedic best… :cowboy_hat_face:

Welcome to the site. Absolutely! The Trinity movies, along with My Name is Nobody are the best of the humorous SWs.

Yes welcome Stephen. @LankyGringo summed up my sediments exactly!!! Three fantastic films right there. I think you would be hard pressed to actually find someone on this site who doesn’t enjoy the first two Trinity films.

Ahem … I can’t watch them anymore, though I liked them when I was a young teenager.

Tried recently with the first movie for nostalgia, but gave up after about 30 minutes - Sorry!

Well than I stand corrected :laughing:

Amigo, on this site, we respect other peoples opinions…the ‘SWDB’ would be as boring as hell if we all thought the same. :wink:

I saw the German version of the first Trinità movie, Die rechte und die linke Hand des Teufels (“the right hand and the left hand of the devil”), in the cinema around 1980, when I had just crossed the threshold of being a teenager. Even then, I didn’t find this kind of (brutish) humor appealing, I was simply bored. Some decades later I watched the Italian and English versions of the Trinità films, and although I found the absence of the German dubbing’s corny jokes very beneficial, my original assessment didn’t change. Not my cup of tea, but, as the French say: « À chacun son goût. »

it would be about time though for restored versions of these films to hit international markets. Might be an opportunity to re-assess the films and their impact… but for the most part not in the best hands, in terms of license-holders the world over

I’ve actually always avoided these films as I couldn’t stand Terrence Hill in My Name is Nobody. Probably the unfunniest ‘comedy’ I’ve seen. I don’t mind him in his serious roles but I have absolutely no desire to check out any more of his comedies :joy:
