Trinity is STILL My Name

1971 …Continuavano a chiamarlo Trinità, Regia di E.B. Clucher

    You have bullets? I had a long discussion and I was running out of arguments

Trinity (Terence Hill) and his brother Bambino (Bud Spencer) promise to their dying father to undertake together at last a decent career as outlaws. So they come to a town where Parker, a local squire, sells weapons to Mexican rebels taking advantage of the local friars and subduing them to be the middle men in the transactions. The two use a misconception that they are federal agents, seeking to take advantage of the situation: Trinity seeks to conquer the beautiful daughter of a farmer and both brothers would then pocket the sum delivered by the Mexicans to the friars for the weapons. Eventually they go against Parker and his men in defense of the religious order.

    If that Lucifer shows up, tell him to go to hell

Trivia: The film has been the standard of absolute receipts in the 1971-72 season with 3.9 billion liras, which revalued according to inflation would be 29.3 million in current euro. However, considering the difference in the price tickets, then which was proportionately less expensive tnha today, for the same audience, the film would collect between 110 and 120 million Euros. With 14.979 million viewers this film currently holds the record for most tickets sold in the history of Italian cinema
