Did You Know?

Trivia:
The original title of the film was "Duel in the Wind." Lee Van Cleef came up with the Italian title while discussing the movie with John Phillip Law who sighted the film was a "man to man" story. Van Cleef remarked, "Why don't they call it 'From Man to Man'?" The Italian producers liked how it sounded in Italian ("Da Uomo a Uomo") so much they used it. And then the film was subsequently retitled "Death Rides a Horse" in English speaking markets, which Law said he never liked.See more »

An Excellent Revenge Drivien Spaghetti Western., 12 January 2010
Author: JohnWelles from United Kingdom

"Death Rides a Horse" AKA "As Man to Man" (1967), directed by Giulio Petroni, is among the best Spaghetti Westerns. Leen, mean and with with plenty of action, it never slows down from the brilliantly executed murder and rape during a thunder-storm that sets in motion Bill Meceita

(John Phillip Law)trail of bloody vengeance. Of course the real star of this film is Lee Van Cleef. Tougth and savage, this master thespian can easily hold his own against scowling villains One-Eye (Mario Brega) or Walcott (Luigi Pistilli). The photography is fine and the screenplay by Luciano Vincenzoni is a mini-masterpiece of revenge-drama.

But now, the vices. Quite a few shots of "canyons" seem to have been filmed in quarry's, some of the supporting cast are weak, notably Carlo Pisacane and José Torres. Also, the one real weakness that detracts from this otherwise great movie is when, each time Bill sees someone who was involved in killing his father, there is a quick, red tinted flash-back showing what evil crime they had committed against his family. As there are five people to kill, this soon becomes rather monotonous.

Apart from the few flaws mentioned, this is a almost perfect example of a normal Spaghetti Western. A sheer joy to watch.
