hilarious
3 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

The Man from the East. My husband and I along with another couple saw this movie when it was originally released at the theater in the 1970's. We have never forgotten it. We all thought it was extremely hilarious! We have been trying to find in on video for the last 10 years because we thought it was one of Terence Hill's best, and we are big fans of his. We hope it will be released soon on video.
