50th Anniversary God Made Them, I Kill Them

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the release of “God Made Them, I Kill Them”, written by Fernando Di Leo, directed by Paolo Bianchi and starring Dean Reed and Peter Martell. The story is about a gunman who is hired by the people of Wells City  to protect the town’s god shipments, which are being robbed on a consistent basis by a gang of outlaws.
