Butifarra/Spaghetti/Snitchzel Western co-produced by Spain/Italy/Germany and filmed in Cataluña
This is a Paella/Ravioli Western about a classic theme , the usual confrontation between cattlemen and homesteaders . A strange and weary cowboy named Clint comes to defense peasants in their struggle against the nasty owners , as the gunfighter fighting to stifle the conflicts between homesteaders and cattlemen who hire hired hands . Clint Harrison (Jorge Martin) is a gunman who goes back to his little town he leaved years earlier to find that his mother and son have moved away to get away from his bad reputation . In order to make amends he tracks his family down and ends up in the middle of a war between a humble farmers as McKinley (Beni Deus) and a wealthy rancher called Walter Shannon (Walter Barnes) alongside his sons Don (Pinkas Braun) and Dave Shannon (Paolo Gozlino) and hoodlums (Fernando Sancho) who wish to get his hands on their lands even if it means murdering . Even though Clint promises his spouse (Marianne Koch of A fistful of dollars) to never use his gun again he is forced to when the rancher's hoodlums begin killing the farmers in a series of violent shootouts.
Acceptable and watchable tortilla Western in which a drifter resolves a conflict between a bunch of settlers and wealthy owner . Well crafted and passable Western realized in traditional style with an interesting screenplay written by Jose Antonio De La Loma and the same filmmaker Alfonso Balcazar , including memorable dialogue and some phrases in ¨Shane¨ style . Italian-Spanish-German co-production full of familiar drama , action , exaggerated characters, crossfire and lots of shots . The film packs father-son relationship , violence , shootouts , high body-count and and results to be quite entertaining . It's a middle-budget film with good actors , technicians, production values and pleasing results . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes . It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the starring Jorge Martin and his enemies Paolo Gozlino and Fernando Sancho . Acceptable acting by Jorge , ¨George¨ , Martin as a gunslinger that has been running from vengeful foes for years. The film is well starred by Spaghetti star as the Spanish George Martin who worked much for Alfonso Balcazar's factory such as ¨Clint the strange¨, ¨The return the Clint¨, ¨Oeste Nevada Joe¨, Thompson 1880¨ , ¨Taste of killing¨, ¨A pistol for Ringo and ¨The return of Ringo¨ . Furthermore , appears ordinary secondary of Spaghetti/Paella Western as Spanish players : Beni Deus , Miguel De La Riva , Xan Das Bolas ,Gustavo Re , Luis Barboo , as Italian actors : Renato Baldini , Paolo Gozlino , Remo De Angelis and many others . Special appearance by Spaghetti idol , Fernando Sancho as a cruelly baddie role as Mexican bandit is terrific , subsequently the would play similar role in other Spaghetti . The picture well photographed by Victor Monreal , though is necessary a fine remastering because the film-copy is washed-out . Mostly filmed in sweeping scenarios on location in Aragon Pyrinees , Lerida, and a Western village located in ¨Splugues De Llobregat¨ , it resulted to be the location where were shot lots of Western produced and directed by Catalan people as Alfonso Balcazar , J.J. Balcazar , Jose Antonio De La Loma , Juan Bosch, Ignacio F. Iquino and Julio Buchs , among others , because Almeria was too far and the landscapes bear remarkable resemblance . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction and excellent production design by the usual Juan Albert Soler , he creates a good scenario . Very enjoyable musical score by Nora Orlandi , including catching songs .
This motion picture also titled "Clint the Nevada's Loner" - USA , "Clint the Stranger" or ¨Nevada Clint¨was professionally directed by Alfonso Balcazar who managed to make a fluid , witty and agreeable SW . Allfonso alongside his brother Juan Jose Balcazar produced and directed a lot of Chorizo or Butifarra Western , most of them starred by Jorge Martin or Robert Woods ; such as 1972 The return of Clint , 1972 Judas... ¡Toma Monedas! , 1968 Sartana no Perdone or Sonora , 1967 With Death on Your Back, 1966 Dinamita Jim , 1965 Doc, Manos de Plata , 1965 Viva Carrancho , 1965 Five Thousand Dollars on One Ace .
