Jeffrey Hunter guides Pascale Petit to her gold mine and fends off bandits, 5 October 2013
Author: msroz from United States

"Find a Place to Die" is a rugged western. It's technically a spaghetti western, but it doesn't have abundant helpings of the typical trappings of a spaghetti western. It's more an adventure-type western.

One outstanding feature of it, beside the sturdy presence and star appeal of Jeffrey Hunter, is the landscapes we see and also the decayed ruins in those landscapes at times. The settings alone are enough to hold one's interest. They are supposed to be rough, hostile, partly desert, partly mountainous territory in northern Mexico.

Pascale Petit and her husband, the always effective Piero Lulli, have a gold mine 2 days from a small village. Lulli meets with an accident and Petit goes for help. She induces Hunter to help and he assembles a band of 3 other men. The bandit Chato and his gang are the chief danger they face, but there are also internal rivalries and hidden plans. An adventurous trek ultimately turns into the inevitable confrontation with Chato.

The IMDb rating makes this somewhat below average (5.4) and I agree. It doesn't have a great deal of plot to it and the music is not special. The characters are not especially original either. One song sung in the film is too modern for its time (the 1870s).

Objectively, while it's not that good a movie, I have to say that subjectively I liked it well enough. It moves along well, has variety, has some odd enough characters in it and has the atmospheric settings. The reddish coloration of the film seems strangely attractive.

It's by no means a top-grade spaghetti western but those western fans with tolerant tastes and those who are completists will appreciate it. I did. So will fans of Jeffrey Hunter.
