Ah, poor Ballantine, who died in the moment of our triumph. So artistic! So generous! And the most honest of us all. I weep for him! May his good soul go to heaven and then be greeted by our Lord above. Wait! This now means there's only four of us! So we divide his share between us, huh?

Sabata is now in the Mexican revolution as Yul Brynner. Is it possible to this movie be a bad flick? I don't think so. It seems to me that Parolini gave a lot of liberty for Brynner to play the part well. First he doesn't try to imitate Lee Van Cleef, because he's almost playing the part of Chris from "The Magnificent Seven" (the set is the Mexican revolution, he has to help the Mexicans and he wears only black; oops!). As for the direction, Parolini proves here that he is in the spaghetti western genre just like Duccio Tessari and Sergio Corbucci: not a great director, but at least a man with a style (and let's face it: in this particular genre the guy has got to be at least good to have his trademarks and shit like that). All in all a very good example of how the spaghetti western wasn't so bad as the critics like to say. Great use of the Techniscope widescreen photography (it has more zooms than the films of Mario Bava and Leone together, but they are very well done) by director of photography Alessandro Mancori. Well, I guess this is all.
