Good and agreeable Spaghetti Western that details the dissolution of a despotic cattle baron's family
19 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

A rebel father called Temple Cordeen (Joseph Cotten) and son (Gordon Scott) split over the hanging of a Yankee during post-Civil War . As a Civil War soldier named Lon Cordeen returns home to his father who can't accept the loss of the Confederates. Serious conflicts arouse which split the family . As Temple Cordeen swears vengeance on those who have taken his lands during war . And the journalist's daughter (Ilaria Occhini)seeks justice against Temple , whom she blames for his death .

Italian made spaghetti that contains thrills , action and lots of gratuitous gunplay . The picture with no much plot displays elements of Greek tragedy and a touching finale . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing shootouts, fights or stunts every few minutes . This Spaghetti was filmed in 1965 , a notorious year in the development of European western that almost doubled since former year with movies mostly filmed in Spain and Italy . It results to be a peculiar version about confrontation between father and sons ; theme to be treated in other Hollywood films such as ¨Broken Lance¨(1954) by Edward Dmytryck with Spencer Tracy as daddy and sons as Robert Wagner , Earl Holliman , Hugh O'Brian ; and previously in ¨House of strangers¨ (1949) by Joseph L Mankiewicz with Edward G Robinson , Luther Adler and Richard Conte . Joseph Cotten is magnificent as the ruthless wealthy owner who sadly contends his sons . Franco Nero , in a smaller part that you'd expected from his billing , in nevertheless excellent as a good guy who marries Temple's daughter . There appears several familiar faces from Spaghetti such as Franco Balducci , Romano Puppo , Giovanni Ivan Scratuglia and Giovanni Cianfriglia . It packs a mediocre cinematography by Alvaro Mancori , also producer , being necessary an urgent and perfect remastering . Musical score well composed and conducted by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino is impressive ; including catching leitmotif and enjoyable sounds from Western .

The motion picture was professionally directed by Albert Band and Mario Sequi . A veteran filmmaker, Albert Band is one of Hollywood's most prolific directors who started his career in the early 50s. He began financing a number of motion pictures through the seventies and eighties and helped his son, Charles Band, bring together his own production company, 'Empire Pictures', in the early eighties. Upon the collapse of Empire Pictures in the early nineties, Band continued to work with his son and help bring a number of low-budget and medium budget films to the Hollywood screen and direct to video releases. Band directed some Western such as ¨She came to the Valley¨, ¨Massacre at Grand Canyon¨, ¨The Young Guns¨ and this ¨The Tramplers ¨ at his best ; furthermore , he made terror , action and of all kind of genres .
