Hossien stars as a leather-clad killer, drawn into a tragic kidnap/murder plot by his former flame Michelle Mercier. An almost totally visual film with perhaps not more than two dozen lines of dialogue. Written by
I'm certainly the first one not to join the incredible chorus of praises.But seriously folks !Robert Hossein's forte has always been the thriller,the film noir, and several of his efforts are really worthwhile ,particularly " Toi Le Venin" "Le Jeu De La Vérité" and "La Mort D'Un Tueur";westerns are a different matter.
Just before this spaghetti-western (it's rather a French fries western ,by the way) ,he and his star Michèle Mercier hit the big time with the five "Angélique Marquise Des Anges" movies .
"Une Corde Un Colt" is a bad idea gone wrong;in France it got unanimous thumbs down .The cast is essentially French and (for a French),it's impossible to believe in their "characters" .The production is the poorest of all Hossein movies ,being thin and lacking any real positive (or negative) energy.A "visual " western it may be (with a dozen of lines),and they even hire "Angélique"'s cameraman ,Henri Persin,but there's nothing really visually beautiful to film.
André Hossein,Robert's brother ,provides the score,as usual,and it's rather nice,although a bit anachronistic ,sounding late fifties/early sixties
