Deadly Spaghetti: The Goodest, the Baddest & the Ugliest Italian Westerns Ever Made
Author: John Le May
Publisher: CreateSpace Publishing
Throughout the 1960s and 1970s the Italian film industry cranked out over 600 "Spaghetti Westerns"- and for every Fistful of Dollars were a dozen pale imitations, some of them hilarious. Many of these lesser known Spaghettis are available in bargain bin DVD packs and stream for free on Amazon Prime. If ever you've wondered which are worth your time and which aren't, this is the book for you. Decipher the meaning of "April Morning" and see Lee Van Cleef bust a rap in Captain Apache! Check out the original Shanghai Noon in the form of the Shaw Brother's co-production Blood Money. Puzzle at the Acid-induced Hippie Western Matalo! See hearts ripped out of chests in The Fighting Fists of Shanghai Joe! Thrill to William Shatner in dual roles in White Comanche! Visit Robert Shaw, Telly Savalas and Martin Landau in A Town Called Hell! Split a few heads with Bud Spencer in Massacre at Fort Holman! See faces melt and Giuliano Gemma shoot down Aztec sorcerers in Tex and the Lords of the Deep! And watch Django go bananas in tropical Mexico in Django Strikes Again!
