Guest reviewer Lee Broughton is back with an in-depth look at Franco Solinas and Sergio Corbucci’s ‘committed’ political Spaghetti western, a large-scale drama about revolution, compromise and opportunism. Tony Musante is an honest peasant, Franco Nero a Polish military advisor, and Jack Palance a memorable villain; the music score is by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai. Also with Giovanna Ralli and produced by Alberto Grimaldi, straight from Leone’s ‘Dollars’ films. On Region B Blu-ray from 88 Films.
