I got this at Wal Mart and it comes with a bunch of movies I haven't seen. I'm wondering if you have seen any of them. Here's 4 that I will definitely watch because they look Italian-

Boot Hill- Bud Spencer Terrence Hill
Any Gun Can Play- George Hilton
Savage Guns- Robert Woods
This Man Can't Die- Guy Madison

These 3 Im thinking of watching because of the lead actor-

One Eyed Jacks- Marlon Brando
Dan Candy's Law- Donald Sutherland
Joshua- Fred Williamson

The next 11 I don't plan on watching without a recommendation-

The Last Rites of Ransom Pride
Day of the Wolves
Deadwood '76
The Law of .45s
Dead Aim
Rawhide- Lou Gerhig
Savage Journey
The Hanged Man
Cry Blood Apache
Buffalo Stampede

The last 2 I've already seen- Kid Vengeance and God's Gun.

I'll post what Ive watched from this pack on this thread.

Boot Hill- boring, but it has its moments, and there's a great cast. I especially enjoyed the villain's performance played by Victor Buono. I recognize him as Jim Ignatowski's dad on the show Taxi.
Horrible full screen print.

Any Gun Can Play- fun movie with George Hilton, Gilbert Roland and Edd Byrnes.
Decent 2:35 print.

out of those movies i've only heard of One Eyed Jacks & Joshua.some obscure titles there. try and seek out Cut Throats 9, i believe that's on a 20 pack western release somewhere.

I read your thoughts on Cut Throats. Sounds interesting. I'll have to try and find it. I love dark westerns. (except Four of the Apocalypse, that one really sucked)

Savage Guns- I've seen plenty of good spaghetti westerns, and also some bad ones. But this is the first time I've run into one that's so bad it's good. There are some positives to speak of, like a good lead actor Robert Woods and a good music score. But the movie itself is very weird. Here's an example- the hero had a trauma early in his life where his parents are killed. After the villains unload at least 100 bullets from their six shooters (I'm not exaggerating), they leave the house. The young boy is hiding under the table looking at his dead mother and he notices that the door is opening and closing (from the wind?). Now fastforward to the present day and he is a fully grown man who freaks out and gets the shakes every time he sees a door open.

This is a really insane movie and I recommend it.

Bad but watchable pic quality 1.85.

This Man Can't Die- nothing special about this one, but not bad. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the badass lead actor Guy Madison. The song that plays in the opening and ending credits is really really good, but the rest of the music is lifted from other movies, mainly Fistful of Dollars and A Few Dollars more. There is one scene that needs to be mentioned. A group of prostitutes has a fight with a group of bandits and the bandits rip the womens clothes off so they can suck on their boobs during the fight.

Decent looking full screen print.
