Dear Members, pls. help me out with two filmtitles- who proves to be the expert who can find 2 filmtitles of two movies which are among the very best spaghetti westerns ever made. I lost my collection books while moving to Aruba in the dutch caribbean and would like to have these titles so I can buy the DVD's for my collection.
this one starts with a red background with in white color horses running and men shooting. This is really done in a Sergio Leone like style although I have never seen any proof of his involvement in the making of this movie- but I think he was. It was an early spaghetti western from probably 1964 or 1965. The opening scene has a man tied to a railroad and a train getting closer, similar to a scene in " A bullet for the General" but even better shot and early in the movie. The man has a round funny, sunbrown face, likeble, heavy set. There are no famous stars in this movie but I do feel that Leone was involved in the making of this movie. It was an excellent spaghetti western and I am so sorry that I lost the title name. I want the name badly so I can try to buy it on DVD. Any help is appreciated!! ( the movie title Johnny Hamlet is in my mind but I am really not sure!)
In the opening scene Lee van Cleef frees a prisoner from a heavy labor camp and ties the prisoner behind
his famous beatiful black horse. The scene shows, shot from below on the ground, Lee van Cleef high on his horse
with a beautiful blue sky and sun as background. The prisoner as I remember could be either Guliana Gemma or Thomas Milian. Also an excellent spaghetti western which I would like to ad to my collection if it is available on DVD.
Who is the expert with enough knowledge and memory to help me with the titles???
I have been a fanatic of these westerns since I saw " For a Fistful of Dollars" and saw lines of people waiting in front of a cinema in Paris, I saw the special posters and billboard, sensed that this was something very special and different and decided to enter without having planned to go to the movies.. I will never forget the sensational feeling I had when seeing the posters and billboard of Clint Eastwood and after the movie I knew I was hooked on the spaghetti westerns which I still enjoy today.
My best to all fans and sure hope to receive a reply to my questions.
