    I have always loved Van Cleef films more than Eastwood. Van Cleef did films that Eastwood did later with identical story lines. I guess it is just a matter of personal preference. Van Cleef is more dashing and noble in my opinion. If you like the "dollars" films you will like this too I think. Great to see TCM showing his films.

    Under rated "Spaghetti" western with the master of the genre Lee Van Cleef in the lead role as a one time outlaw (Ryan) mixed up with a gang that use him as a scape goat for a robbery and the slaughter of the family that had the money. After 15 years in a prison farm he seeks his revenge and encounters the only family survivor a then young boy (John Phillip Law) whom he had rescued at the time as he wasn't like the other outlaws. The boy is now a young man and crack quick on the draw ace with pistol and rifle seeking personal revenge. This provides the background to the journey of finding the outlaws and systematically dealing with them.The outlaws have now made money and become respectable, so the bull at a gate young gun must learn more subtle ways from the master on how to catch the prey and exact revenge..serve it cold, pity you can only exact that revenge and kill off the bandits once as the young gun could exact revenge multiple times. Subplot is the outlaws are up to their old tricks to get more money and try to use their old scape goat Ryan to carry the can. He of course is on to them and eventually the master and young gun team up to chase them to a small village in mexico where the villagers have also been at the mercy of the outlaws for many years. A last stand is made, who survives and who gets the loot - you will have to watch to see, but this is well worth the time. Great western action, great lead actors, plenty of shooting and the master composer (Ennio Morricone) providing the musical score. The DVD is generally found relatively cheap so is an absolute bargain for what you get from this movie. Definitely one of the best spaghetti western made.
