Raise Your Hands, Dead Man, You're Under Arrest (Leon Klimovsky, 1971) **
14 November 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This Spaghetti Western from Spanish horror director Klimovsky begins in the Civil War, then proceeds to your typical Western town; it does include an offbeat score, which blends a lively main theme with a flurry of vaguely ominous sounds.

The hero – called Sando Kid(?!) and played by Peter Lee Lawrence – is as bland as they come (and too boyish to convince); he's helped by a stuttering priest/ex-soldier pal and a rambunctious ranger/bounty-hunter (whose presence is always threatening to have some import on the central plot, but it never actually does!). The villain (typically, he wants to run citizens off their rightful land through terrorism for his own profit) is genre regular Aldo Sanbrell, his 'moll' "Euro-Cult" starlet Helga Line'; of course, Lawrence and friends won't stand for this (Sanbrell had actually met them during the war, where they were once again fighting on opposite sides…but he's conveniently erased all memory of his callous massacre of the wounded enemy at a time when hostilities had already ceased!).

As with many oaters in this vein, the film is a harmless time-waster but instantly forgettable; even at a mere day's distance from its viewing, I can barely recall other significant plot details or genuinely memorable sequences, action or otherwise – I do know that the priest, comically, gives absolution to Sambrell's fallen gunmen at the climax!
