Berger's lead role
10 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sartana in the Valley of Death (1970) I found was much better then most have reviewed. It was nice to see William Berger in his only SW lead role as Calloway. This is not a Sartana film as they tried to market it as to draw a larger crowd. I watched the 78 minute cut version which was not bad and most have viewed this version I am getting the original 98 minute version soon and will follow-up. The 78 minute people have to take in consideration that with 20 minutes gone we have problems like Calloway shooting in the ground and it blowing up also when Calloway meets with the one Craig brothers it was grossly edited and it rushes into Calloway going into the Sheriff's office.

The lead score "A King for a Day" by Augusto Martili at first made me laugh then it grew on me like cancer and got stuck in my head for three days. This song reminded me of a untalented Italian Elvis impersonator singing.

The main annoying problem, I had with the film one was everyone kept calling Berger's character Galloway and on the wanted poster it shows Calloway. All in all for a low budget SW it was a nice flick about Calloway, who is a gun for hire that wants 50% of the loot the Craig brothers stole and hide in order for him to break them out of jail. They decide to play cat and mouse games and double cross him in order to keep whats theirs. The opening scene of the movie shows how Calloway is worth every red cent and if you double cross him you die...
