Roy Colt and Winchester Jack (1970)

Directors: Mario Bava
Genre: Western/Comedy

"Horror maestro Mario Bava (Black Sunday) tries something new with this zany satire of Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy. Roy Colt (Four Times that Night's Brett Halsey) and Winchester Jack (Charles Southwood) are two roguish cowboys whose gang isn't very successful at earning a dishonest dollar. Fed up with starving, the two friends decide to go their separate ways, with Roy vowing to find an honest job. But he changes his mind after arriving in Carson City where he is made sheriff and entrusted with the replica of a stolen treasure map leading to a fortune in buried gold! Who will reach the gold first? Will it be Roy? The Reverend (5 Dolls for and August Moon's Teodoro Corra), a Russian outlaw with a fistful of dynamite? Jack and his gang? The Jewish desperado Bernstein (Mauro Bosco)? Or perhaps Mahila (Marilu Tolo), the mercenary Native American seductress desired by the Old West's Most Wanted? The answer may surprise you as the Maestro of Italian Horror takes them all on a date with a skull and an open grave in an ancient Indian burial ground!" - from DVD Pacific

My oppinion:
I didn't have high expectations to this one after reading some bad reviews on the net, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. After all, I'm a big fan of Spaghetti Westerns. I ended up feeling pretty pleased with it. Sure, it's not among the best spaghetti westerns out there, not even close, but I found it to be somewhat entertaining nonetheless. I especially enjoyed the reverend character and the scenes in the brothel were crazy and fun. Some of the humour comes out as pretty silly and dumb though.
All in all, I think it's worth seeing for fans of Spaghetti Westerns and Bava fans, just don't expect a masterpiece, because that it is not...

My rating:
