Watched it this afternoon
if i wasn't watching it in Italian i could have been forgiven for thinking it was a U.S. western of the 50's, also the soundtrack wasn't very spaghetti like (although Morricone and Leone helped change the style of both the same year)
It was ok for a watch but nothing special, nothing that would make you suspect it was a Bava film either.
I'm not dissmissing the film because i thought it was alright but after all, this is Mario Bava here.
But as Seb said, clocking it at just over 75 minutes helped it rather than making the film seem too short.
Check out the cactus 25-26 minutes in
I did enjoy it more than ROY COLT AND WINCHESTER JACK (which i saw when the image dvd came out, i've now another one in the Bava 2 boxset, so i will revisit again soon, is it any different to the image disc does anyone know?).
All i need to see now is NEBRASKA JIM then i would have seen all of Bava's three westerns.
