Violent and decently made Spaghetti Western with two main actors : Anthony Steffen and William Berger
2 February 2018 | by miguellopezcortesSee all my reviews

This is an exciting film , plenty action , thrills , fights , and starked outdoors from El Lacio , Rome and De Paolis Studios . Two pistoleros called Johnny Brandon (Anthony Steffen) and Everett 'Bible' Murdock (William Berger) join forces to take down dangerous bandits , murderers and other scums . Brandon/Steffen is similar to Django , a fast-draw and silent gunfighter . Everett/William Berger is nicknamed The Preacher and dressed in black in Sartana- Sabata style , like a ¨Death Angel¨ , and he is wielding a six-barrel gun . They are two killer bounty hunters taking out outlaws who are wanted with fine prices on their heads in a small Western border town. The duo of bounty hunters take off an evil and mighty landowner (Riccardo Garrone) who carries out smuggling illegal of Mexican immigrants and confronting the hoodlums (Giancarlo Sisti, Roberto Messina , Emilio Messina) that work for him .

Enjoyable Western follows the Sergio Leone wake , as it is proceeded in Spaghetti models . It's a moving western with breathtaking gunfight between the protagonists Anthony Steffen , William Berger against the heartless Riccardo Garrone , in addition a stirring ending fight in which takes place an impressive duel among three contenders in ¨The good , the bad , and the ugly¨ style . Acceptable action sequences with rousing attacks and spectacularly paced confrontation . Charismatic performance for the whole casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , Anthony Steffen is good as Brandon . Anthony Steffen may be a name best remembered by Spaghetti Western aficionados, but in his day, from the mid-'60s to the early '70s, Steffen was one of the most popular actors of the genre - at the time cheap B movies, now revered cult classics . The handsome, Italian-born - actually at the Brazilian embassy in Rome - Antonio Luiz de Teffè von Hoonholtz began working in films as a studio messenger for Vittorio De Sica . From there, Steffen began acting in sword-and-sandal epics, later moving onto the Western genre , where he found his niche . Unlike fellow Spaghetti star Clint Eastwood, however, Steffen never became a top international box-office attraction .His acting is often accused of being wooden, but in many manners is ideally suited to playing the steely-faced gunslinger synonymous with the genre . His others successes include features as ¨Seven Dollars to Kill¨, ¨The last Mohican¨ or ¨The last Tomahawk¨, ¨Train for Durango¨, ¨Gentleman Jo¨ , ¨¨Stranger in Paso Bravo¨, ¨Garringo¨, ¨Four dollars for Django¨, ¨Shango¨, ¨Arizona colt¨, ¨Apocalypse Joe¨ and several others . Although he played other genres as Terror and Gialli , such as : ¨An angel for Satan¨ and ¨The night Evelyn came out of the grave¨ . And William Berger , the fair-haired Austrian leading man, who appeared in many spaghetti westerns between 1966 and 1987. He had a reputation for being a rebel and a vociferous anti-establishment figure . However , Berger's career was also at times interrupted by drug abuse. He played known Westerns as Face to face (1967), Keoma (1976) , Fast hand , The band of Jaider , Sabata , Chuncho , El Cisco , Today We Kill , Tomorrow We Die! , A Name That Cried Revenge. There appears as secondaries the habitual in Italian Western such as : Mario Brega , Giancarlo Sisti , Riccardo Garrone , and two gorgeous Eurothash girls : Nicoletta Machiavelli and Mariangela Giordano .

The musician Vasili Kojucharov and Elsio Mancuso compose a nice soundtrack in Morricole style and well conducted , this turns out to be one of the most memorable parts of the movie; as it's full of enjoyable sounds and haunting musical background . The soundtrack and songs contribute tremendously to the atmosphere of the film, including an emotive leitmotif, the music score is perhaps the best aspect of this movie . And adequate and atmospheric cinematography in Eastmancolor and CinemaScope by Franco Villa . The motion picture titled ¨Une langue file de croix ¨or ¨Una lunga fila di Croix¨ or ¨Una larga fila de cruces¨ was well filmed by Sergio Garrone and with lots of zooms , difficult angles , foregrounds , and backgrounds . Sergio's direction is finely crafted , here he is more inclined toward violence and packs some thrills and action , but especially this exciting Western contains moving shoot'em ups and some gloomy scenes when a lot of Mexican people are massacred . Sergio serves as a classic example of a journeyman Italian exploitation filmmaker and freelance screenwriter . As Garrone penned a great number of screenplays and lack-luster films , working from the 60s in all kind of genres and B movies . He directed this embarrassing western , genre in which he would not only excel but one where he would spent much of the rest of his career . Sergio went on to helm several other spaghetti Westerns , many of them Spanish co-productions, that include Tre Croci Per Non Morire (1968) , Quel Maledetto Giorno Della Resa Dei Conti (1971) , Deguello (1966) also starred by Jack Stuart , Huracan Sobre Mexico (1967) and his greatest notoriety was the peculiar outing : Django il Bastardo (1969) . In 1974 Garrone directed the horror features as Le Amanti del Mostro (1974) and La mano Che Nutre la Morte (1974) , both of which performed Klaus Kinski . He made and wrote for everything from inferior sex comedies as La Clinica Dell'Amore (1976) , El Periscopio (1979) by José Ramón Larraz , to even Giallo , mystery thrillers such as : L'ultimo harem , La Pagella , Blonde Köder Kür den Mörder (1969) or Killer's Gold . Later on , Sergio Garrone directed nasty Naziexploitation or Porno-Nazis as Lager SSadis Kastrat Kommandantur (1976) and SS Lager 5: L'inferno Delle Donne (1977). And after writing the violent/erotic WIPs (women-in-prison) : Hell Behind the Bars (1984) and Detenute Violente (1984)
