too bland
13 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 38 minute documentary from 1968 narrated by Frank Wolff, is a very simplified overview of Italian Westerns. It also has behind-the-scene footage of various Westerns, interviews with their respectable directors, and it's impact on Italian life. Then it seems to dissolve into a travelogue for Italy itself, before telling of twists on westerns. I found this film to be way too bland and basic to be that enjoyable. Good only as a curiosity, I believe this was made for American TV. This documentary can be found as an extra on the "Run, Man, Run" disk of the Blue Underground Spahetti Western DVD collection.

My Grade: D+
