Killer Kid (Leopoldo Savona, 1967)

Phil says that Marco Giusti says that Garrone "was likely the lone scriptwriter despite joint credit…"
I like to give Garrone credit, cos he comes in for a fair amount of stick at times and not everybody enjoys his films as much as I (I’m thinking No Graves on Boot Hill, Vendetta at Dawn and Django the Bastard here.)

That’s what sets this apart from other run-of-the-mill Mexi-Westerns (I’m not talking so much about the more famous ‘Zapata’ Westerns). It’s sincere rather than shallow for a change.

However, I like Garrone.

Garrone contributed to the screenplay.

One belated agree…

good to see KK getting some love ;D

Hey, it’s with Steffen and this means solid dusty fun.

I am watching a copy of the Koch media release and it is excellent so far. I might even say this could become a top 20 spaghetti western for me. I love the political aspect of it and Steffen is top notch in it.

Never mind the politics, this is the Fernando Sancho show! ;D
I love Freddy in this one.

he is great too. Probably his best role too.

Glad you’re enjoying Frank. One of my favorites


(Frank Talby) #72

I am too. Thank Phil for filling my coffers with Steffen movies. My opinion of has improved with each movie I have seen. Steffen gets knocked too easily and I find him enjoyable. He’s no Lee or Franco or Gianni but he’s good in his own way.


(Chris_Casey) #73

Yes! I happen to think that KILLER KID is a great film!
One of my favorite Steffen Westerns, to be sure.
I like Steffen a great deal and have never thought him to be the “wooden” actor that most people tag him to be.


(Spaghetti Monkey) #74

Only seen a few with Steffen, but i’d have to agree with you on this, so far.


(autephex) #75

Steffen is among my top tier of spaghetti regulars. I rate him above Garko


(Bad Lieutenant) #76

They’re both in a class of their own. Garko couldn’t pull off a Django the Bastard even if he’d been infected with a zombie virus. On the other hand Steffen would have made a horrible Sartana.
Apples and pears.


(Phil H) #77

Well I wouldn’t go that far but I have come to appreciate Steffen a lot more over the past few years. Not sure whether I have come to appreciate his subtle acting approach or just been worn down by weight of numbers in terms of films he made. Either way I do enjoy a good Tony picture these days and Killer Kid is certainly one of his very best.

Maybe true. I agree with your statements about Garko not playing a Bastard Django, but I would like to see Steffen attempt a Sartana. Would be very curious to see the result

I’ve liked Steffen since day 1… On the other hand, I don’t care much for Garko really. I’m not sure if its Garko or the roles he plays though… not my style

LOL nice way of putting it.

As for me, I love Steffen but Killer kid is merely “okay” with me. Its not one of my favorite Steffen westerns.

I can’t compare Garko to Steffen it’s not fair to either actor - they both have different styles and they each work in the movies they appeared in.
