Quotes

Holy Joe: [reading the Englishman's last letter] I don't know whether I'll find rich green grass or tough weeds up there. But, if there's rich grass, praise be to God! If there's nothing but weeds... praise be to God. The only thing I'll miss is your friendship. For the rest, I have no regrets.

Surprisingly entertaining
29 October 2002 | by gordodj2000See all my reviews

I saw this film as the opening film at a drive-in many years ago, and found it to be more entertaining and enjoyable than the feature, which I don't even recall. If this is available on home video, it is a Must-See, especially for fans of Spaghetti Westerns.
