Cool Spaghetti full of fury , action , and portentous duels.
4 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

This clever and successful Spaghetti Western that owes a considerable debt to Leone deals with a miserable bastard named Scott (Giuliano Gemma) who runs errands and works menial jobs in a little town ; as he's mistreated , pushed and kicked by ruthless villagers . Then , there arrives an occasional mysterious visitor , a too smart bad guy , he's a two-fisted gunslinger named Frank (Lee Van Cleef) . He befriends Scott and acts as protector of the humiliated young who receives advice from the gunslinger and he becomes tough , surpassing his teacher . The gunfighter teams up with the hapless young man against the nasty townspeople mistreated him and then Scott carries out a personal vendetta . Later on , it takes place fateful happenings , as they never thought it could happen in their town .

The film displays psychological characters-in deep , shootouts , action Western and being enough entertaining . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as it is filled with fury , sadism , bloodbaths, and portentous close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . Gulianno Gemma is good as unfortunate bastard working in worst and dirtiest labors , and Lee van Cleef is cool as cruel gunslinger . As secondaries appear Jose Calvo (Silvanito in ' A fistful of dollars') and usual of Spaghetti as Benito Stefanelli (habitual master of arms), Andrea Bosic and Ricardo Palacios . Furthermore , Ivonne Sanson as brothel Madame , she was a known actress in Italian melodramas and an uncredited Al Mulock (he was one of the mythic trio at the beginning of 'One upon a time in the West' along with Jack Elam and Woody Strode) . The producers Alfonso Sansone and Chroscicki produced 'Day of Anger' with quite Budget . The picture is full of nice sound by Riz Ortalani and correctly photographed by Enzo Sarafian . The motion picture was well directed by Tonino Valeri who was Sergio Leone's assistant . Valerii managed to make a fluid , witty and agreeable SW . He proved his experience in Western such as ¨Bounty hunter¨ , ¨Death a President¨ , ¨A reason to live a reason to die¨ and his biggest hit : ¨My name is nobody¨ with Henry Fonda and Terence Hill .

This Spaghetti Western along with 'Da Uomo a Uomo (Giulio Petroni with Lee Van Cleef-John Philip Law)' led to recovery in the popularity of 'horse opera' after Leone hits . Both of them are masterpieces about gunslinger/disciple theme , and developing a paternal-filial relationship . Other films about this issue are the followings : 'All'ombra di un colt (65)' by Gianni Grimaldi with Conrado San Martin and Stephen Forsyth , 'Bandits (1967)' by Massimo Dallamano with Enrico Maria Salerno and Venantino Venantini and 'Beyond the Law (68)' by Giorgio Stegani with Lee Van Cleef and Alfonso Sabato.
