50th Anniversary of “Boot Hill”


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the premier of Boot Hill directed by Giusepp Colizzi and starring Terence Hill, Bud Spencer, Woody Strode and an early appearance by Luca Montefiori (aka George Eastman). The story tells of Honey Fisher who has become a powerful man in this small Western town that has grown up around gold-prospecting mining claims. Fisher and his gang have managed, through swindling, murder, and terror, to gain leases on the important gold-yielding land in the area. A state commissioner comes to town to review the leases, which are crucial to Fisher's power. Cat Stevens and Hutch Bessy join forces with circus performers and townsfolk led by Stevens' friend Finch to fight against Fisher and his henchmen.
