Have a Good Funeral, My Friend... Sartana
Will Pay

Directors: Giuliano Carnimeo
Starring: Gianni Garko

Genre: Spaghetti Western


"After witnessing a brutal massacre, the legendary hero Sartana is ready to do some investigating. Almost everyone in the tiny town of Indian Creek seems eager to buy up the property left behind by the murder victims, and one of them could well be behind the killings. The sheriff himself is not above suspicion, so Sartana must uncover the culprit all on his own."- from absurd-online

My oppinion:
This is the first Sartana movie I ever saw, and I liked it. And what a title! Our "hero" Sartana is a man with many tricks up his sleeve. Especially the things he can do with a special-made deck of cards are very amazing and amusing. He's also a bit of a tough guy, lighting his cigar with the burning fuse of dynamite. This one isn't as action packed as many other spaghettis, but I never got bored and there are some really brilliant action scenes as well. It's really more of a murder mystery kind of movie, but with all of the necessary spaghetti western elements. Another thing worth mentioning is the nice score done by Bruno Nicolai. Even though I really enjoyed it, it does have its downsides as well. The plot was a bit confusing and messy at certain points, where I wasn't really sure who was doing what and what was going on, but that really didn't matter all that much to me. I'm looking forward to seeing more Sartana movies after this one. Recommended for spaghetti fans!
