Italian version of Butch & Sundance; not really, but sort of
Released in 1970 and directed by Rafael Romero Marchent, "Sartana Kills Them All" chronicles the misadventures of a duo of fun-lovin' outlaws, Sartana (Gianni Garko) and Marcos (Guglielmo Spoletini), who are on the hunt for a large sum of loot, which they know is missing from a robbery. They hook up with a vengeful beauty (María Silva) as a sheriff (Luis Induni ) & his deputies pursue them.
While "Sartana Kills Them All" isn't part of the original five Sartana films, it came out right on their heels and features the same actor in the title role. The print I viewed was widescreen and is a surprisingly decent presentation for such an obscure Spaghetti Western. In any case, the film plays out like a low-budget Italo "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969) with Gianni Garko in the Redford role, albeit without Redford's Hollywood good looks (sorta akin to Klaus Kinski), and Spoletini as a kind of Mexican version of Butch Cassidy.
One part that was great was the disabled & disturbed confederate veteran and his four redneck sons from hell, which is reminiscent of the five scary brothers in the mining camp in "Ride the High Country" (1962). María Silva's beauty shines and Spoletini is thoroughly charismatic.
The film runs roughly 84 minutes and was presumably shot in Spain.
