Decent Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced between Italy and Spain with ordinary actors as Berger , Fajardo and Bodalo
18 December 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Ringo or Jack Balman (Austrian actor resident in Italy named William Berger) is a tidy and rapid gunfighter . At the beginning take place a series of stagecoach robberies between Silver City and Tombstone . There occurs the theft of a passenger whose $ 200 had them hidden in their clothes . A 200-grand in stolen booty is at stake and Ringo gets blamed . Ringo is detained and imprisoned in Silver City , but he escapes and goes to Tombstone to discover the guilty . In Tombstone meets a saloon girl (Adriana Ambesi) that ties to her bed to get for information . He finds out a group of powerful local people (Spanish secondaries: Eduardo Fajardo , Jose Bodalo , Francisco Moran , Jorge Rigaud) carry out the robberies , as the Mayor , the sheriff , the saloon owner and shop keeper .

This acceptable Western contains an interesting but twisted plot , violence , double crosses , shoot'em up and results to be quite entertaining , though drags at times , balancing in ups and downs . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some violence , crossfire or stunts every few minutes . The movie gets the usual Western issues, such as avenger antiheroes , violent facing off , exaggerated baddies , soundtrack with Morricone influence , among them . It's a thrilling western with breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist William Berger against the heartless enemies formed by a Spanish all-star-cast such as Eduardo Fajardo , Francisco Moran , Jorge Rigaud , Armando Calvo and the great Jose Bodalo of Django . There is a very odd implementation of shots in the camera work during some particular scenes as well as a lot of twists and turns , as the film approaches its climax , as in the final and the unusual conclusion . Austrian William Berger in his first Western , is fine , as he ravages the screen , hit and run and kills . Fair-haired Austrian leading man Berger appeared in many Spaghetti westerns between 1966 and 1987 such as "Sartana in the Valley of Death" , "They Call Him Cemetery" , "Fast hand" , ¨Noose for Django¨, "Jaider's Gang" , among others . He also played several Western as a secondary actor as he had got fame and fortune with his unforgettable co-starring in ¨Sabata¨ as the banjo man , ¨Face to face¨, ¨Keoma¨ , ¨California¨ and ¨Tex¨. He had a reputation for being a rebel and a vociferous anti-establishment figure . Berger's career was also at times interrupted by drug abuse . La Grande Notte di Ringo" is predominantly an Italian film rather than a Spanish one , but the Spaniard participation is important , as here appears a lot of Spanish secondaries , ordinary players in Spaghetti/Chorizo or Paella Western such as Armando Calvo , Paco Morán ,Antonio Molino Rojo , Antonio Moreno and of course the always excellent Eduardo Fajardo . Colorful cinematography by usual Emilio Foriscot , he creates a magnificent scenario on the little town and barren outdoors , dirty landscapes under a shimmer sun ; being filmed on location Manzanares Del Real , La Pedriza , Colmenar Viejo (Madrid) and Lacio (Rome) . The music original by Carlo Rustichelli composes an agreeable Spaghetti soundtrack , being well conducted and including a splendid leitmotif ; it's full of enjoyable sounds and emotive score

The motion picture was professionally written and produced by Eduardo Manzanos Brochero and his production company ¨Copercines¨ . Eduardo Manzanos started producing ¨Il Coyote¨ and ¨The Jiusticia De Coyote¨ by Joaquin Romero Marchent with Abel Salazar and Gloria Marin . After that , he produced with his company Copercines ¨Vengeance of Zorro¨ and ¨L'Ombra Di Zorro¨ (1962) by Joaquin Marchent with Frank Latimore . Eduardo Manzanos built a Western little town in Hoyo De Manzanares (Madrid) with sets by Jaime Perez Cubero and Jose Luis Galicia , today almost scrawny or sadly disappeared ; the village was called ¨Golden City¨ where filmed several Western as the classic ¨Fistful of dollars¨ and ¨For a fistful of dollars more¨ ; furthermore there was shot : ¨Welcome Padre Murray¨ , ¨Brandy¨ , various Zorros and this one . Manzanos Brochero produced various films for Marchent brothers as Joaquin Romero Marchent : ¨Cabalgando Hacia Muerte¨ , ¨Three good men¨; and Rafael Marchent : ¨Quien Grita vengeance¨, ¨Two crosses in Danger Pass¨ ; and for Italian directors as ¨Sabor Odio¨ by Umberto Lenzi¨ , ¨Winchester 1 between 1000¨ by Primo Zeglio , ¨At the end of the rainbow¨ by Aldo Florio and ¨Taste for vengeance¨ or "Cowards Don't Pray" and this one . "Ringo's Big Night" was compellingly realized by Mario Maffei , he is an assistant director , known for Rufufú , Girl with a suitcase , Boccaccio 70 , Inglorious bastards , among others .
