The formula of ritual
14 October 2005 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

A Yankee officer returns from war to find his wife and son murdered by a band of killers. A toy drummer is the only remaining memory for him, because they burnt down his house. The officer takes the toy drummer with him as a symbol of his vengeance. He lets him play every time he found one of the murderers, and kills one by one. This extremely simple story serves as a formula of ritual. 1971, there had been several years in which the Italian western had formed its typical clichés, and I believe writer/director/producer Mario Gariazzo is quite aware that he uses them all. Ty Hardin as the officer uses masks so nobody knows who he is. An excellent cast supports him. Rick Boyd, Lee Burton and Ken Wood are familiar faces from earlier westerns. Gordon Mitchell is the deputy sheriff, and Craig Hill gets the role of a circus director with a Kaiser Wilhelm mustache. Beautiful Edda Di Benedetto appears as an Indian girl who helps the avenger. Despite some confusion probably due to the cuts (copies in most countries are 20 minutes shorter than the Italian original) and lack of original music (soundtrack mostly borrowed from "I Crudeli"), this is a good revenge western movie for the fans of the genre.
