Le Pistole Non Discutono Western Collection (1963 - 1972)

5 film, 5 disc collection of lesser known and variably interesting Spaghetti Westerns. Ripley Home Video R0 Italian boxset.

The Films

In Brief:

Anyone famous involved? The popular Spaghetti Western actor Tomas Milian stars alongside a variety of interesting character actors including Horst Frank, Rod Cameron, Paul Muller and Richard Harrison. All five films include soundtracks by the genre legend Ennio Morricone.
Who is it for?
This set is really for existing genre fans - containing a pair of very interesting early genre entries as well as the decent and enjoyable MacGregor films and the rather poor Providence. For those who dislike the comedy entries, Duello Nel Texas and Pistole non Discutono come recommended on their own. Spaghetti Western newcomers should probably watch some of the better known genre entries first before embarking on this set.
