Arizona Colt 03/23/21

Wild East

CineSavant reviewer Lee Broughton rides in with a review of Michele Lupo’s attractive Spaghetti Western, in which every gunslinger is ruthless and greedy, even star Giuliano Gemma’s anti-heroic bounty killer of the title. Gemma goes nose to nose with Fernando Sancho’s villainous Mexican bandit. It’s nearly two hours of gunsmoke and sadism, and the womenfolk take their share of the punishment as well. Collateral damage comes in the shapely form of fan favorite Rosalba Neri while Arizona’s highly reluctant love interest is played by none other than Corinne Marchand, of Agnès Varda’s Cleo from 5 to 7. Also with Roberto Camardiel, Nello Pazzafini, Jose Manuel Martin and Andrea Bosic, on All-Region  Blu-ray from Wild East.
