Interesting Spaghetti Western Murder Mystery
30 September 2006 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

"Il Venditore Di Morte" aka. "Price Of Death" is an unusual mixture of Spaghetti Western and Murder Mystery. The interesting idea and two great actors, Klaus Kinski and Gianni Garko, make it an entertaining and interesting movie.

After a prostitute and a bartender are killed in a robbery in a little town's saloon somewhere in the Old West, a thug named Chester Conoway (Kinski) is arrested and immediately sentenced to death. Paid by the young lady who owns the saloon, and who despises Conoway, but believes in his innocence, Conoway's lawyer hires the famous gunman and tracker Mr. Silver (Garko) to prove his innocence. Silver soon doubts the town's people's believe that the two dead people were victims of a violent holdup, and starts to think that the robbery was just committed to draw the attention off the true reason of the murders. Price Of Death also has a subplot about the murder of a Mexican girl.

The idea of making a Spaghetti Western with the plot of a murder mystery is quite unusual and interesting, furthermore "Price Of Death" also has its humorous moments. The movie is also worth watching for its two stars, Gianni Garko (who is credited as John Garko in this movie), and Klaus Kinski, who is a great enrichment for this film, although his performance in "Price of death" is far from his best performances, and he actually doesn't say a lot. The answers to the movie's mysteries are unfortunately quite predictable, but the film is still fun and worth watching. As a Spaghetti Western fan, I recommend this to others, I can't guarantee that everybody is gonna like it, but I did. 6/10
