Movie Class by PizzaFLIX: The Spaghetti Western, aptly named for its Italian origin and extra marinara sauce for its gratuitous bloodshed. This genre came into prominence after the world-wide success of Sergio Leone’s A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS which introduced the Antihero to westerns. Played by Clint Eastwood as the “Man with No Name,” this character was morally ambiguous, not the heroic savior of traditional Hollywood westerns. These films were usually Italo-Spanish co-productions. Italy’s famed Cinecittà Studios handled technical production, directing and writing, and various film companies in Spain were used for the location shooting in the desert region of Almería which closely resembles the American West.

Sewing machine gun… Bad ass!
Very entertaining flick, classic spaghetti, great shootouts, great stunts, even a pretty good plot. Enjoy this one!
I love the 'Senger' sewing machine at the beginning…

Did…. Did he turn a sewing machine into a sub-machine gun? In the time when technology still not reaching that level? I just love how cheesy this turn out to be
This film holds true to the classic grindhouse genre. I can see this playing at any of the many grindhouse cinemas in NYC during the 70's.
why does this have so many dislikes
The lighting is mostly simple, the focus is sometimes off, but the overall framing and camera work (pans, zooms, etc.) elevates the whole movie.
A Master piece of the Spagetti Western
Parody, farce, sprinkled with Monty Python. Most fun because it didn't even try to be normal.
Nothing special . 5 out of 10
the lead looks like the guy from Django!!!
The anti-hero cowboy was first introduced in the mid-1950s by Director & Screen Writer Budd Boettecher & great Westerns Actor Randolph Scott. Sergio Leone in a documentary said his western movies were an omage to the western films he grew up watching.
Chinese laundry ain't have one Chinese person
"this is an invasion of my rights"??
