No Pay To Play
21 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

After 77 Sunset Strip ended its TV run in 1963 Edd Byrnes who became the legendary teen idol Kookie from the show was having some trouble sustaining his 15 minutes of fame as most teen idols do. By 1967 he was off to Europe to see if spaghetti westerns would do for him what they did for Clint Eastwood. Any Gun Can Play bares some faint, but very faint resemblance to Clint's pasta epics.

Byrnes and Gilbert Roland are the only two names American fans will know in this cast. The nominal lead is George Hilton who really is from Uruguay and named Jorge Hill Acosta y Lara and he plays a bounty hunter who's after Roland and $300,000.00 Roland and his gang robbed, but that one of his own men stole what the stole and hid it. Edd Byrnes is the banker they stole it from, but he's got his own plans for the loot.

Any Gun Can Play has a real hard time making up its mind whether it is being played straight or it's going to be a satire on the genre. About 2/3 of the way through the film it switches gears, almost like a new team of writers were brought in.

I didn't really enjoy Gilbert Roland in this and that's hard for me because he's good no matter how bad the film is. But for his sake I hope his paychecks all cleared.
