As was common with many Spaghetti westerns, the Italian actors in Vivi O, Preferibilmente, Morti were billed with more English-sounding names to try and make the film more appealing to American audiences. As such, leading lady Sydne Rome was billed here as Karen Blake - even though she is from Akron, Ohio and "Sydne Rome" is her real name. See more »
On the heels of the success of the Robert Redford/Paul Newman smash hit came this Italian knock off called Cassidy Sundance and Butch the Kid which is about as funny as this comic western gets. Two cowboys are offered three hundred thousand dollars as an inheritance provided the quarrelling duo can live together for six months. Duccio Tessari is widely considered to be one of the founders of the spaghetti western genre but he hasn't been given a lot to work with from this cast or screenplay. At best it can be viewed as a precurser to the wildly successful Terence Hill & Bud Spencer slapstick Trinity films. Barely worth a look for even hardcore genre addicts.
