Directed by Sergio Corbucci • 1968 • Italy
Starring Franco Nero, Tony Musante, Jack Palance
Spaghetti-western master Sergio Corbucci makes a bold, leftist political statement with this thrilling tale of revolution set in Mexico. The director’s frequent collaborator Franco Nero stars as Sergei Kowalski, a cynical Polish mercenary, who joins up with Paco Roman (Tony Musante), a Mexican rebel hiding out as a rodeo clown. Together, the pair plot an uprising against a ruthless general—but they’ll have to contend with a killer (Jack Palance) out for revenge along the way.
