Lee Van Cleef,
Long before the Terminator, Sabata (this time Yul Brynner in his only spaghetti western) uttered the infamous words, "I'll be back." This is the second of Gianfranco Parolini's Sabata trilogy, but it is not a sequel, as the characters and story are different. Like the first, it is also written by Renato Izzo, who went on to write the video nasty Night Train Murders after finishing the trilogy.
Brynner had the cool look that probably got him the Westworld gig a few years later.
Ignazio Spalla is back from the fist film, but with a different name (Escudo). Maybe he changed it to hide.
Sabata joins Escudo and revolutionaries trying to overthrow Austrian Archduke Maximillion, who ruled over Mexico as an imperial dictator; of course, Sabata was only after gold. Others were as well, so it was not a walk in the park.
It is fortunate that the Archduke had plenty of soldiers to sacrifice to the cause.
Well, Lee Van Cleef, Ignazio Spalla, and Aldo Canti will be back in the final Sabata film.
