havent seen it yet. now that we figured out that we were talking about 2 different Carnimeo films with the same alternative title, i’ve split the topics


(ephedrino) #3

Incorrect! The canteen opening scene is from the Hilton Sartana whereas They Call me Halleluja opens with Hilton using a machine gun disguised as a sewing machine. So you’re still both talking about C’E SARTANA… VENDI LA PISTOLA E COMPRATI LA BARA.

Not sure if the imdb is correct saying that both films share the same English alternative title.

what a confusion. but i think now i moved to posts right

FISTFUL OF LEAD is C’E SARTANA… VENDI LA PISTOLA E COMPRATI LA BARA, not THEY CALL ME HALLELUJAH


(Sebastian) #6

Which film is this thread about? I have already voted for They Call Me Hallelujah on another thread. There seems to be some confusion here. I don’t want to vote for the wrong film.
Either way couldn’t this thread be scrapped since I think there are threads for both these films elsewhere with the option to vote on both. (So I don’t need to vote anyway).

BTW the correct (?) thread for They Call Me Halleluja has a spelling mistake (they calle me Halleluja…sic). Can this be corrected. Otherwise people’s searches may be fruitless.

And @ Korano: Yes it is, awesome film but it’s a comedic one which is not for all tastes.


(korano) #12

Thanks Bill. I honestly don’t mind comedic elements.


(MunchhausenPL) #13

Could someone close this topic and correct the word “calle” in the title of this onehttp://www.spaghetti-western.net/forum/index.php/topic,137.0.html? We need to make some cleaning on the forum :slight_smile:

My take after seeing this great film.


(Stanton) #15

For me Cipriani’s beautiful score is one of the merits of this entertaining flic. Especially the percussive dominated parts. The first sequence, which is the best Carnimeo ever shot, is ennobled by the combination of the wonderful music with the tele lens shots.

Another highlight is the (fake?) russian dance of Southwood, which brings him back to life after he was filled with water, and suddenly turns into an attack on his guards.
If you like this hilarious scene, there is a good chance you will enjoy the complete thing in all its amazing sillyness.

(T.H) #17

Im not much for these comedy SW’s, but this one was ok. Had some terrible stupid moments, like the sewing machine gun and as you allready mentioned, the dancing scene.


(ENNIOO) #18

Was not to keen first time round, but had some fun with it the second time.
I agree with Stanton re the score.


(Stanton) #19

And in the sequel a similar score by Cipriani is the only interesting aspect.

I haven’t seen this one but i’ve seen and enjoyed the sequel. It was veeery stupid but surprisingly enjoyable. I guess i’m not that harsh when it comes to some of comedy-SWs - i can like’em when they’re stupid, but i can’t take’em when they’re boring or feature nothing but neverending, badly choreographed and directed fistfights.
