Started watching this one while doing other things, thinking I wouldn’t be paying much attention to it nay way, but after a while I started to pay more attention to what was happening in of the screens, forgetting the other with Office stuff.
Actually is one of those SW that ends better than it stars, the second part of it was quite good above my expectations, the film had real developed characters and a good storyline. I specially appreciated the subplot with the ex convict “pistolero”, whose bail out of prison, was paid by a widow, so that him could help her taking care of her farm 8must have been a common thing in those days as I’ve seen in other films), was pretty clever stuff and modern for a Spanish western of 1964.
Alex Nicol playing main character Brandy (great title) may not be an obvious choice, but I guess he did a good job, doesn’t had the hero looks? Yes true, but so didn’t Jimmy Stewart, of ourse Nicol is no Stewart, but for a pre-Leone SW, he was fine.
So not a bad SW, with a good story and some nice scenes, Bornau was kind of a arthouse director that to is luck (or no) only directed almost exploitation films. Brandy didn’t let me down a solid 3 stars for me, with the plus of having Maite Biasco a very lovely actress.
Coulnd’t understand the Italian title
