Average and slow-moving Chorizo/Schnitzel Western co-produced by Spain and Germany
9 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

In Glory , ¨the fastest growing city in the West , only the fastest guns square off in¨ , as population pay to see a man kill gunfighters . Today, founder's day they'll pay to see a man kill another man . There appears former rancher Clint Brenner (Lex Barker) and the younger Reese (Pierre Brice) , his equal in skill at gun-fighting to participate in ¨Brenner versus Deakes¨ duel . Both of them help farmer Seth Grande (George Rigaud) free the locals of Manitoba town Glory City from land baron Jack Villaine's (Gerard Tichy) and his hoodlums (Antonio Molino Rojo, Aldo Sambrell) who rule a kingdom of terror. Needing money , both of whom arrange a showdown for paid entrance and the winner take all . They're got to face a gunfight once more to live up to their legend once more to win just once more time and more money . The two gunmen get a friendship on the job but ignore they'll be pitted as adversaries in the town's founder's day popular duel by last-minute blind substitution . The excitement starts at the duel when the hands point straight up . They've nothing like'em together in a duel but in the heat and hate of the small town nothing can tear'em apart . Thus, a little town square will become the scenario of the most spectacular duel ever attempted . Two men who faced many guns together , now face each other . In Glory You Either Ended Up In The Money.. Or In The Ground! Who will survive and what will be left of them? .

Die Weiße Hölle Von Manitoba or Sfida a Glory City is a Paella/Schnitzel Western produced by Miguel Echarri and Artur Brauner , it concerns upon a gun-battle pits among two individualist characters . It is an average story with excessive dialog and in Tortilla Western sub-genre style , but the movie follows more the US models than Spaghetti wake . As it results to be a familiar film , with no much violence , exception some brief shootouts . It's a serious German/Spanish Western with particular character studio about two gunslingers become friends, but also seeking money and unable to avoid their reputation and the duel-challenges . The film was starred by two intimate actors , Pierre Brice , famous Winnitou , and his endearing partner Old Shatterhand /Lex Barker , both of whom unforgettable starring of German Karl May series . The lion's share of the acting meat deservedly goes to George Rigaud and Gerard Ticy , the good guy and bad guy respectively . Many other familiar faces from Chorizo/Spaghetti , there appears ordinary secondaries in Spanish/Italian Western such as Aldo Sambrell , Carlos Casaravilla , Luis Barboo , Santiago Ontañon , Angel Del Pozo and Victor Israel , among others . Furthermore , three secondary players from Leone's A fistful of dollars as Marianne Koch , Wolfgang Lukschy and Antonio Molino Rojo . Acceptable cinematography by Federico G. Laraya , filmed on location in Almeria , Andalucía, and Balcázar western village, Barcelona, Cataluña , Spain . Atmospheric musical score by Angel Arteaga following American style more than Morricone sounds . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Sheldon Reynolds . He produced and directed some episodes about Sherlock Holmes , as he acquired a license to produce and direct adaptations of the Sherlock stories, and successfully formed a consortium which acquired the rights at auction. Reynolds also filmed some thriller as ¨Assignment kill¨ , ¨Carnival's killer¨ and ¨Foreign intrigue¨ . ¨A place called Glory¨ resulted to be his only and mediocre Western .
