it ain't no john wayne western

Looks like this one had many names over the years -- the DVD case says "Dead for a Dollar", but apparently it's also known as "Trusting is Good, Shooting is Better!", as well as various titles in various countries. I saw the 91 minute DVD version, which has English dubbing, thank goodness. Stars Jorge Acosta Y Lara aka George Hilton, born in Uruguay, as Glenn Reno, on a mission. "The Colonel" is played by John Ireland, who has quite the interesting story on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ireland_(actor) Such a rambling plot, although it looks like there are about fifteen minutes missing in the version I saw. Everyone seems to be searching for the buried loot. Shooting. Killings. Digging. Great outdoor scenery. Written by Tito Carpi. Directed by Osvaldo Civirani... looks like his brother Walter was the camera-man on all his projects, a family affair. Moves crazy slow. I wonder if the original script was any more exciting than what we hear in English in the dubbed version. Sound and picture quality are terrible, but it does seem to be a copy of a copy....?
