[quote=“mike siegel, post:425, topic:694”]His German TRINTIA is the only one I ever saw with Hill AND Spencer being the leads. Somehow the German
ADRIA distributor had an idea they would become big business as a team. Even the German title
is a reference to two guys (The left and the right hand of the devil). During the films initial (first) release usually Terence Hill is pictured without Spencer on the posters, the title refers to TRINITA only, not to them as a team…[/quote]
Yes, but Trinity refers to the number three: the film was supposed to have three protagonists instead of two in the original plans (see my Trinity article: http://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/A_Man_called_Trinity).
The title The Right and the left Hand of the Devil was used in Holland too (De Rechter- en de Linkerhand van de Duivel); in fact ‘Duivel (devil)’ was a recurring element in the Dutch movie titles of the two: The Four hands of the Devil (Trinity is still my Name), The Devil shows no Mercy (God forgives … I don’t). When they ran out of develish inspiration, they turned to Halelujah: Halelujah for a pair of Fists (Boot Hill)
