1967, MGM/Park Circus, 114 min, Italy, Dir: Giulio Petroni

Spaghetti Western stalwart Lee Van Cleef stars as an ex-convict chasing a group of thugs for money; John Philip Law is after the same gang for revenge. A one-of-a-kind blend of Western, horror and film noir with a clever flashback structure, and one of the most hallucinatory and haunting of all Italian oaters. In English.
