Tonino Valerii's "I Giorni Dell'Ira" aka. "Day Of Anger" is an excellent Spaghetti Western with great actors and one of the genre's best Non-Moricone scores. Furthermore, "Day Of Anger" contains some of the most remarkable lines in Spaghetti Western dialogue.

Scott (Giuliano Gemma), the illegitimate son of a prostitute, lives as an outcast of society in a town called Clifton, where he is responsible for the garbage removal. The only people who treat him like a human being are the prostitutes from the local bordello, a vagabond, and an old stableman and former Sheriff called Murph, who taught him how to draw a gun fast. One day, however, a mysterious gunman called Frank Talby (the great Lee Van Cleef) comes to town, and begins to teach Scott some self-respect. Scott, who now calls himself Scott Mary (because his Mother's first name was Mary), follows Talby, who leaves town after shooting a man in self-defense and getting acquitted at court. But Talby, who teaches Scott one lesson after another for his life as a gunslinger, still got unfinished business with the "good" people of Clifton. And Scott Mary, who is given a gun by Talby, is just too happy to follow Talby back to Clifton and demand the respect he deserves from the people who oppressed him for years.

The acting in "Day Of Anger" is excellent, Lee Van Cleef is brilliant as always, Giuliano Gemma is great too. The supporting actors are also very good, I specially liked Al Mulock as an outlaw, and Benito Steffanelli as a hired killer. The excellent score by Riz Ortolani is one of the genre's best non-Morricone soundtracks, the cinematography is also great. The dialogue is superb, lines like the ten lessons taught by Talby (one of them is the title of this review) are unforgettable film history.

"Day Of Anger", an excellent and particularly moving Spaghetti Western, is a must-see for us fans of the genre, but also highly recommended to everybody else. 9 out of 10! Great!
