Quotes

[first lines]
Paco: Psst. Hey - c'mere.
[the Stranger walks over to him]
Paco: Get out, and don't stop 'till you're out of town ten miles.
The Stranger: Why?
Paco: Ten miles!
The Stranger: Look, I'm tired and I wanna sleep.
[Paco pulls a switchblade on him]
The Stranger: Ten miles. Trouble is, my horse out there is even more tired than I am. I don't think I can get the poor fella to take another step. And I don't want any trouble. 'Kay, boss?

FOR WHAT IT IS...
20 June 2004 | by QBSNIDERLOESSee all my reviews

Personally, I enjoyed all three of the Anthony (Stranger) movies...I I took them as satire of the Eastwood trilogy...Eastwood smokes cheroots, Anthony rolls cigarettes that unravel in his mouth...Eastwood wears a poncho, Anthony a ratty serape...Eastwoods kills with his six gun, bad guys take Anthony's six gun so he kills with a shotgun...Eastwood is direct, Anthony is sneaky...the list could go on and on...the Anthony trilogy is to the Eastwood trilogy as the James Coborn (Our Man Flint) were to the Sean Connery (James Bond) movies...high quality the Stranger movies were not, campy fun they were...how can you not like a ratty little scoundrel like the stranger, who's always losing his pistol and getting beat up, who looks like a skid row derelict, but somehow, manages to kill all the bad guys in the most inventive of ways...what's not to like...
