STRANIERO…FATTI IL SEGNO DELLA CROCE! (Demofilo Fidani, 1967) *1/2
24 November 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

The directorial debut of Miles Deem…er…Demofilo Fidani is worthy of his reputation as “the Ed Wood of Spaghetti Westerns”: ineptly shot, with no flair for the genre and where scenes just plod along without any sense of pace or timing! Even so, I’d say it’s a slight step up from my previous encounter with his work – SAVAGE GUNS (1971).

Three cast members in the film also made their screen debuts here: Charles Southwood – later star of similar fare like Mario Bava’s ROY COLT AND WINCHESTER JACK (1970) – is a wooden lead, to be sure; the gorgeous Cristina Penz (who’s unfortunately saddled with the broadly characterized role of the duplicitous virgin bride-cum-gang boss’ moll); and Fabio Testi (later a popular star of “Euro-Cult” fare who occasionally dabbled in Art-house cinema) as one of the villainous henchmen. The mostly anonymous cast is redeemed somewhat by the presence of Ettore Manni as “The Cripple”, a vengeful father after a gang of outlaws who murdered his son, currently hiding behind the persona of the town drunk.

A sequence involving an egg-shooting contest (featuring camera operator Aristide Massaccesi aka Joe D’Amato as a Sicilian cowboy(!), complete with twangy musical motif!) is as silly as it sounds – but the film’s metaphorical use of children in the initial bank robbery mayhem curiously prefigures Sam Peckinpah’s THE WILD BUNCH (1969)! Even so, the bandit’s getaway is accompanied by an upbeat, yodeling theme that is cringe-inducingly inappropriate! However, we’re treated to a couple of anachronistic novelties worthy of James Bond: the hero has a gun hidden inside his water canister, while Manni himself holds an ‘arsenal’ of bullet-shooting crutches! Finally, I’d intended to follow this up with a handful of other more respectable examples within the genre but thought better of it (since my viewing schedule for the rest of the month is all taken up).
