Enrico Maria Salerno,
Nice Italian Westerm with tragic atmosphere ,wonderful musical score and special appearance by the great Fernando Sancho
For 10.000 dollars Django , a bounty hunter (Gary Hudson or Gianni Garco , usual player on Sartana personage , another famous hero of S.W.) swears to chase Manuel (Claudio Camaso) who has kidnapped the daughter (Adriana Ambesi) of a baron land . As Django along with his faithful friend , a likable photographer named Fidelio looking for evil Manuel . But his lover (a saloon-girl played by Loredana Nusciak)is killed and Django seeks vengeance . Meanwhile the daughter who suffers Stockholm syndrome falls in love with Manuel .
Acceptable twilight Spaghetti Western with interesting dialogue by the usual Ernesto Gastaldi , splendid cinematography by Zanni and memorable musical score by Nora Orlandi . It's a typical Spaghetti Western in which blends the common scenarios , as invincible and tough antiheroes, difficult and fast showdowns with numerous deceases , impulsive and quick zooms , musical score with Morricone influence . The picture has a certain remembrance to ¨For a fistful dollars more¨(Sergio Leone) regarding the avenging theme and including Manuel character who bears remarkable resemblance to Indio role (Gian Maria Volonte) , furthermore Claudio Camaso was brother of Volonte and holding physical likeness and similar playing . Besides, good set decoration filmed in Elios studios and of course Almeria (Spain) . Also has resemblance with ¨Django¨ (Sergio Corbucci) referring the Salooon girl character equally interpreted by Loredana Nusciak. The highlights of the movie result to be the following : when the hero wakes up from the beach along with a corpse , Django living in a photography back room studio decorated against posters captioning ¨Wanted : Dead or alive¨ , the phantom village full of dust and wind and Django buried until neck , among others . ¨Ten thousand dollars blood money¨ was shot at the same time to ¨For one hundred thousand dollars per killing (Giovanni Fago)¨ with similar artist and technician team and also starred by Gianni Garco , Claudio Camaso and Fernando Sancho . The motion picture finely produced by Mino Loy ,Luciano and Sergio Martino brothers was well directed by Romolo Guerrieri who also made other S.W . Romolo is a good craftsman who has directed all type of genres such as post-nuke Sci-fi as ¨ The last warrior¨, Italian crime or Poliziottesco as "Young, Violent, Dangerous" , ¨City under siege¨ , "Ring of Death" and western as ¨Johnny Yuma¨ and ¨Seven guns for Timothy¨ again with Fernando Sancho . Rating : Better than average Spaghetti Western .
