Did You Know?

In the film, Scott Mary's mule is called Sartana; a common name for a gunslinger character in other spaghetti western films.See more »
Scott Mary:Doc Holliday was the best shot in all the west. Him... not his pistol.
Murph Allan Short:Him... and his pistol! There can be an experience of a lifetime in a gun. But it's not enough to be able to draw faster than the other guy if the other guy knows a trick that you don't know. In my day, we had to either learn the tricks... or we gave work to the gravediggers.

Cool Spaghetti full of fury , action, and portentous duels., 4 November 2008
Author: ma-cortes

This clever and successful Spaghetti Western that owes a considerable debt to Leone deals about a miserable bastard named Scott(Giuliano Gemma), he's mistreated, pushed and kicked by village people . Then arrives an occasional mysterious visitor, a too smart bad guy, he's a tough gunslinger named Frank(Lee Van Cleef). He befriends Scott and acts as protector of the humiliated young . The gunfighter teams up with the hapless young man against the persons mistreated him and then Scott carries out a personal vendetta .

The film displays psychological characters-in deep, shootouts,action Western and being enough entertaining. The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti, as is full of 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 is well directed by Tonino Valerii 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 My name is nobody¨.

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 are a masterpieces about gunslinger/disciple theme, and developing a paternal-filial relationship. Another films about this issue are the following : '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.
