I watched this last week and think I made no mention of it here on the board so far. When the main theme started repeating itself in my head over the last few days it functioned as a reminder to make a topic of it; so here it is.
This is an alright flick about a pistolero’s quest for a hidden pile of money. He gets a silver dollar from a dying army officer and needs to find two other dollars. All three dollars have clues on them on the whereabouts of said pile of money. Naturally a mean bastard of a gang leader has one of the other dollars. Thown in the mix is the pistolero’s Mexican sidekick who has plans of his own.
The film moves along in a predictable way, but it’s a fun watch nevertheless. Nice characters and a laidback atmosphere because of the smooth and catchy score.
I’ve watched the German dvd, of which it is stated in the database that the picture quality is atrocious. I don’t agree. Sure it ain’t great, but it’s very watchable and widescreen too. And definitely not as bad as some other German dvd’s I have.
