Trivia

In the song that is sung over the opening credits, Sabata is referred to as a "nine-fingered man." This was a reference to actor Lee Van Cleef who was missing a portion of a middle finger, the result of an accident when building a playhouse for his daughter. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Sabata and the goons are about to play the "see-saw game" in the saloon, Sabata is seen putting on his gloves, then they pan out to a long shot of the entire saloon and he's gloveless. When they return to the close-up of Sabata, he's wearing the gloves again. See more »

Quotes

Second of the Sabata series starred by Lee Van Cleef and directed by Frank Kramer
13 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

This follow-up deals about Sabata who finds combating a mean businessman named McLintock( Albertini). The major Sabata unites forces with a Saloon owner, the lieutenant, (Reinar Schone). Furthermore his misfit and strange team : two acrobats , Nick Jordan and Vassili Karis and of course the old rogue with a drummer , Ignacio Spalla or Pedro Sanchez . Meanwhile Sabata gets involved with a Saloon girl ( gorgeous Annabella Incontrera) .

This offbeat Western comedy results to be the genuine sequel to ¨Sabata¨ (with Cleef, William Berger,Linda Veras and Franco Ressel), and it's full of intriguing touches, action Western, shootouts and is very amusing. This entertaining picture gets the humorous remarks from Western parody combined to features of Spaghetti such as violent antiheroes, excessive zooms, extreme nasties, violent gunfight with numerous murders. Appear usual secondary actors , habitual in Italian Western such as Gianni Rizzo, Alberto Dell'Acqua, Rick Boyd, Fortunato arena, Franco Fantasia , among others. And Pedro Sanchez who acted in the Sabata trilogy and which played in similar roles to the S.W. idol Fernando Sancho. The movie is well produced by Alberto Grimaldi ( Sergio Leone's Trilogy of dollars as producer). Atmospheric cinematography by Sandro Mancori. . Lively and jolly musical score with Ennio Morricone influence by Giombini. The motion picture is professionally directed by Gianfranco Paraolini, alias Frank Kramer. It's followed by ¨Indio Black¨ with Yul Brynner, Dean Reed and Gerard Herter. The flick will appeal to Lee Van Cleef fans and S.W. buffs.
