50th Anniversary of the premier of “The Buzzards and Crows Will Dig Your Grave”

Today we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the premier of “And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave” directed by Juan Bosch and starring Craig Hill, Fermando Sancho and Maria Pia Conte. The film tells that the aftermath of the Civil War many men have turned to banditry. Wells Fargo is forced to hire bounty hunters to protect their business, but these professionals aren't much better than the robbers they're hunting down. One of them, Jeff Sullivan (Craig Hill), buys the freedom of a convicted robber, Dan Barker (Ángel Aranda) in the hope that the man will lead him to the bandit masterminding the robberies, a guy called Kovacs (Frank Brana). In the course of the events the two men learn to respect each other and when they eventually arrive at the bandits' hideout, they will both have to make an important decision ...
