Swedish Fistful-poster

The violent content of A Fistful of Dollars must have made quite an impact in 1964, I think particularly to those who were familiar with the many television-westerns of those days.

In Sweden the theatrical release of Fistful was somewhat censored, but the film obviously still made an impact.

The poster says:

“One of the strongest westerns ever made!”

“Terribly strong!”, “Absolutely not for the faint-hearted!”

“A town where everybody is rich…or dead!”

“A film that strikes hard!”
