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 »
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 »
I give you my word.
It's pretty difficult to cash that.

This has to be one of the most entertaining, funniest and fun to watch movies I've seen in a while! As a lover of spaghetti westerns and a big fan of Lee van Cleef, I was excited about catching this on TV. Not the kind of movie you have the chance to watch usually, at least where I live. I expected just one more SW, but no -"É tornato Sabata" offers something more. It is quirky, it is sometimes bordering the realms of surreal; and it's a lot of fun to watch. But funny, also -in fact, it's something of a comedy-western, with the agreeable bit of cheesiness that you can find in some of these movies -movies made only to entertain people and provide a good time. This movie does that not only by way of the plot -the charismatic and mysterious hero Sabata arrives in a town ruled by a local tyrant who imposes abusive taxes, with the action that ensues- but also and especially thanks to the amusing dialogues and performances of the whole cast, of which I especially enjoyed Lee van Cleef -once again showing what a talented, sadly underrated actor he was, but also how much he enjoyed his work-, and Pedro Sánchez, here listed as Ignazio Spalla.
Gianfranco Parolini directs the movie, paying very good attention to most of the unwritten rules or principles of spaghetti westerns, following Sergio Leone's extreme close-ups or sometimes slightly overdone facial expressions or sound effects.
Going back to the plot, I have to add that it contains enough fun and clever twists to be quite original and worth watching closely.
I rate this 9/10. Enjoy!
