Crispy salad Italian/Spanish jammed with Spaghetti/Ravioli and Paella/Chorizo Western
'All'Ombra Di colt (65)' by Gianni Grimaldi starred Conrado San Martin and Stephen Forsyth is an acceptable Spaghetti full of fury , action, and portentous duels . It deals with two gunfighters partners , as an elder Pistolero named Duke (Conrado San Martin) , forbids his disciple Steve Blane (Stephen Forsyth) from courting his daughter . But the notorious young gunfighter flees along with the daughter and rides into town , Providence . He hasn't come looking for trouble , but trouble finds him around every corner . The reformed Gunfighter is on his way to a sleepy town in the hope of peace but problems ensue . Meanwhile , the angry father along with his girlfriend (Helga Line) are on his trail and the town's hothead gunmen are scheming to see just how fast Steve is . But as always Steve's reputation has already cast its shadow , this time in the form of vengeful father hot on his trail and two local corrupt owners Jackson (Franco Ressel) and Burn . At the end the aging gunslinger, rides into the strange town and eventually he and Steve face off on the central square .
The film displays psychological characters-in deep , shootouts , action Western and being enough entertaining . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as is full of fury , sadism , bloodbath s, and portentous close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . Spectacular final takes place on the downtown when protagonists contend face to face and surrounded by nasties . Stephen Forsyth is passable as an unfortunate young seeking forgiveness and forgetfulness , and Conrado San Martin is cool as a veteran gunslinger . As secondaries appear Jose Calvo (Silvanito in ' A fistful of dollars') as a sheriff and usual of Spaghetti as Tito Garcia , Rafael Albaicin , Xan Das Bolas , Hugo Blanco , a brief acting of Aldo Sambrell and Sancho Gracia still acting and recently played 800 bullets . The picture is plenty of nice sound by Nino Fidenco who composes one of his best soundtracks , including an evocative leitmotif . Atmospheric cinematography correctly photographed by Julio Ortas , though is necessary a right remastering . Filmed on location in Colmenar Viejo , Manzanares Del Real and La Pedriza (Madrid) with good production design from Teddy Villalva and Carlo Leva . The motion picture was well written and directed by Giovanni Grimaldi . Giovanni managed to make a fluid ,witty and agreeable SW . He proved his experience in Western such as ¨Starblack¨ , ¨ Il Bello, Il Brutto, Il Cretino' and as screenwriter ¨Four dollars for vengeance¨ , among others .
Other films dealing with the gunslinger/disciple theme and developing a paternal-filial among them are the following : 'Bandits (1967)' by Massimo Dallamano with Enrico Maria Salerno and Venantino Venantini and 'Beyond the Law(68)' by Giorgio Stegani with Lee Van Cleef and Alfonso Sabato ¨. And the best are ¨Día de Ira¨ or I Giorni Dell'Ira (original title) with Lee Van Cleef and Giuliano Gemma , this Spaghetti Western along with 'Da Uomo a Uomo¨ by Giulio Petroni with Lee Van Cleef-John Philip Law led to recovery in the popularity of 'horse opera' after Leone hits , both of them are masterpieces about relationship .
