[quote=“Reverend Danite, post:2, topic:1394”]Three Silver Dollars - a very cheap and tacky film with the worst quicksand I’ve ever seen.
Lorenzo Robledo doesn’t last long again (altho’ you don’t see him actually killed - it happens either offscreen or in a cut?). And Charles Southwood actually says summat like “What’s a beautiful girl like you doin’ in a place like this?” at one point, so originality is not high on the list … but even so, despite it’s almost lightweight buddy-ish tone between the two main male characters, it delivered something pleasing and entertaining and had a good female lead (?) and tried to be a bit twisty-turny towards the end. 3 outa 5 for entertainment (on a good day).
That’s a bit I wrote a few days ago in ‘last western …’ thread … to add my two-penneth to the mix. I enjoyed it but I have got a high quality widescreen print of it tho’ :).[/quote]
Haha. I picked up on the same quote (what’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this) too when I posted about this in the Last Western Watched thread as well. It was at about that moment when I came to consider this a trash classic (for me). Doesn’t the female lead just want to get back to her farm in Tennessee or something? It is a loopy film but I really enjoyed it. Ivano Staccioli has the most irrelevent role I can remember in a Spag. A true Red Herring.
And BL, I’m right with you. The music stuck in my head for days as well (and not in a bad way).
Like the Rev, I saw a pretty nice looking version. I much prefer Charles Southwood in this type of role rather than as a Russian noble or a joker named Sabbath.
