Trivia

Fourth western starring Terence Hill and Bud Spencer. The earlier oaters they starred in were "God Forgives... I Don't!" aka "Blood River" [God Forgives... I Don't! (1967)], "Ace High" [Ace High (1968)], and "Boot Hill" [Boot Hill (1969)]. Apart from small parts in the Italian sword-and-sandle epic "Hannibal" [Hannibal (1959)] billed under their birth names, at the time of this movie, Hill and Spencer had actually never co-starred together in a movie which wasn't a western.

User Reviews

the greatest comedy/western ever made!
5 April 2003 | by kvblshempSee all my reviews

Action! Laughs! Beans! Filth! Flies! Sweat! B.O.!...It's all here in this terrific film about two half brothers (Hill and Spencer) who team up to save a helpless group of mormon farmers from marauding mexican banditos and a ruthless gang of ranchers. the entire cast is outstanding and never disappoints in keeping the viewers interested and entertained. the sound effects crew deserved an academy award, as one can practically feel the pain with every punch and slap! The climactic fight scene is the one which all fight scenes should be measured by (poor Mezcal!). It is absolutely hilarious! Tobias would be honored if you'd share their meager meal with them. Buy this title, "Trinity is still my name" and "My name is Nobody." All are classics for the archives.
