AN EARLY AND FINE EXAMPLE OF ITS GENRE., 29 April 2001
Author: ALAN MOUNT (mounty-2) from CARDIFF, WALES

GUNFIGHT AT RED SANDS(US title)may well be the first of the so-called "spaghetti westerns" predating A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS by a year.Richard Harrison is effective as the hero,Gringo,who is not the sort of plains superman that future heroes of this genre would become but a family man who is eager to the right thing by his murdered father but does not strive to become a grim angel of vengeance to do so.Early staples of Italian western convention are already in place like the twitching henchman,good/bad girl and above all the soaring music and theme song.Good stuff and worthy of seeking out.
