The most notable non-Leone Italian oater, Sergio Corbucci's cult classic has a shonky script, gloriously grubby sets and an eye for gaudy, blood-bathed images. Franco Nero is the Clint-alike dragging a coffin into a war between Mexican Banditos and a Ku Klux Klan-style outfit, working them both to get the gold.

It's A Fistful Of Dollars without the wit and Nero's anti-hero is embarrassingly verbose. But the action is energetic and extremely influential, the ear-slicing scene inspiring the sadism of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.
