SAVAGE GRINGO (Antonio Roman and, uncredited, Mario Bava, 1966) **1/2
24 April 2010 | by MARIO GAUCISee all my reviews

I managed to acquire this rare Spaghetti Western just in time for my ongoing Bava retrospective: in fact, I opted to start with it since this was one of only three titles I had never watched before. I wish I had the time to read through Tim Lucas' chapter on the film in his long-in-coming (and, thus, appropriately massive) Bava biography – especially given his uncredited contribution here when, reportedly, he actually replaced Roman quite early into shooting! Anyway, this is one of four Spaghetti Westerns made by this cult figure and, having now checked out all of them, I can safely say it is the most satisfying (if still far from a key work for either director or genre); obviously, while Bava tried his hand at most any type of film within the "Euro-Cult" stable, he was clearly at his most comfortable (or, if you like, inspired) when handling fantasy/horror/thriller elements! Apart from the trademark inventive camera-work, one thing which alerts one to Bava's involvement is the presence of both hero and villain: one is the star of his previous Spaghetti Western entry, THE ROAD TO FORT ALAMO (1964; which was pretty decent in itself), i.e. brawny Ken Clark (hence, the U.S. moniker for this is more than a bit misleading!) and the other, Piero Lulli, would play a major role in one of the director's best films – KILL, BABY…KILL! (1966). Though usually one of the main assets, the score for this one is no great shakes – nor is there a particular emphasis on violence (nevertheless, the action set-pieces are above-par for the course); what we do get is a reasonably engaging (if thoroughly unsurprising, even in making the heroine out to be something of a conniver) plot which keeps moving, thus allowing one little time to ponder on its potential shortcomings!
