Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced by Italy and Spain , being well starred by two ordinary genre stars , Giuliano Gemma and Conrado San Martin
21 November 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Spaghetti with Chorizo Western starred by habitual actors , such as Giuliano Gemma , Conrado San Martin and Nieves Navarro . After three years of heavy physical labor in an infernal jail , the former Sheriff Ted Barnett -Giuliano Gemma- breaks out . Barnett was accused by three men and wrongly convicted to thirty years hard labor for the killing of his father . Ted sets out in pursuit the true murderers . He looks for those that had framed him , seeking vendetta . As Ted (Giuliano Gemma who recently died by car accident) freeing the town from a powerful owner (Conrado San Martin , a great friend to Sergio Leone , he played a lot of films for him , usually as secondary actor) and a corrupt Sheriff Douglas (Francisco Rabal , Luis Buñuel's customary's player) married to Ted's old girlfriend (Nieves Navarro or Susan Scott) , using both gunning down and shrewdness .

This Tortilla/Spaghetti Western is filled with action , thrills , horse riding , brawls and crossfire . This is a decent Spaghetti starred by Giuliano Gemma , a hero who after years of hard labor in a hellish prison in the desert , escapes from jail to seek revenge on the three men who framed him . Giuliano steals the show as a merciless revenger , executing thespian skills , bounds and leaps , twists and shooting and throughly enjoys himself . Recently deceased Giuliano Gemma is very fine in his ordinary role as a gunfighter who seeks vengeance against his eternal enemies , Conrado San Martin , Francisco Rabal , and their hoodlums . Giuliano Gemma , along with Anthony Steffen and Gianni Garco , resulted to be one of the greatest stars of the Spaghetti genre . Gemma in his beginning worked as a stunt-man , practiced many sports in his life, boxing, gymnastics, such as is well proved at the movie . Then the director, Duccio Tessari, gave him the first role as protagonist in the film " The Titani" and the first spaghetti western films where he often worked under the name of Montgomery Wood , playing Western as ¨A pistol for Ringo¨, ¨The return of Ringo¨ and others as ¨Adios Gringo¨, ¨Arizona Colt¨, ¨The price of power¨ , ¨Day of anger¨ and later ¨California¨. However, his first big opportunity came with the important Italian director, Luchino Visconti in ¨El Gatopardo¨ this was followed by important roles in "Angelica" , ¨Tenebre¨ , ¨Young Lions¨ and ¨The master touch¨. Then he played his most significant roles in ¨Il Deserto Dei Tartari¨ and ¨Il Prefetto Di Ferro¨ . While Conrado San Martin played in ¨Winchester Bill¨, ¨In a colt's shadow¨ and various Westerns directed by his friend Sergio Leone ; furthermore , he starred several Peplum and thrillers .

In the movie appears usual Western support actors as Spanish people : Nieves Navarro , Milo Quesada , Manuel Muñiz ¨Pajarito¨ ; as Italian players as Ivan Scratuglia . It's a co-production Spanish-Italian and shot on location in Zaragoza , Barcelona , Alfonso Balcazar studios and, of course ,Almeria , Spain . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction , excellent production design , and atmospheric cinematography by Francisco Marin , he creates a magnificent scenario on the little town and barren outdoors , dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun . The music original by Armando Trovajoli composes an agreeable Spaghetti soundtrack , being well conducted and splendid leitmotif ; it's full of enjoyable sounds and emotive score .

This Western was inspired by the known and classic novel titled ¨The count of Montecristo¨ written by Alexandre Dumas . Other Spaghetti freely based on famous novels and plays are the followings : ¨The Fury of Johnny Kid¨ based on Shakespeare , being directed by Gianni Puccini with Peter Lee Lawrence and Cristina Galbo from ¨Romeo and Giuletta¨ . Furthermore : ¨Johnny Hamlet¨(1968) by Enzo G Castellari ; ¨The return of Ringo¨ by Duccio Tessari also with Giuliano Gemma and inspired on the ¨Odyssey¨, ¨John Il Bastardo¨(1967) with John Richardson , based on books from Zorrilla and Moliere ; ¨Anche Nel West Céra Una Volta Dio ¨ (1968 )by Marino Girolami based on ¨Island of treasure¨ written by Robert Stevenson and ¨Apocalypse Joe¨ with Anthony Steffen based on Macbeth and Hamlet .

The flick also titled ¨Days of Vengeance" or "Long Days of Vengeance" or "The Deadliest Gunfight" or "Vendetta" was professionally directed by Stan Vance or Florestano Vancini . This Italian writer / filmmaker so consistently mixed the good with the mediocre that it became quite impossible to know what to expect from him next . His best films dealt with political events such as ¨The case Matteotti¨, ¨The long night in 43¨ and ¨Sicilian Jaque Mate ¨ . He usually worked with Giulianno Gemma , his fetish actor , such as ¨La Baraonda¨ , ¨Violenza Al sole ¨and this ¨Long days of vengeance¨ . Rating : Good Spaghetti Western , it will appeal to Giuliano Gemma fans .
