Dollar for the Dead

Once upon a time on TNT.


Western

Rod Lott
Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.

My Name Is Nobody

All good, no bad, no ugly.


Western

Rod Lott
Thanks to his Academy Award-winning swan song of On Golden Pond, we don't automatically associate Henry Fonda with Westerns, but the legendary actor made nearly two dozen of them, perhaps none more more memorable than Sergio Leone's 1968 epic, Once Upon the Time in the West.

The Big Gundown

A spaghetti feast


Western

Rod Lott
Italian-made yet America-set, The Big Gundown is the second spaghetti Western in a row I've seen in which a man is silenced by having a soapy shaving brush shoved into his mouth. For the record, the first was the recently re-released My Name Is Nobody, a 1973 film as fine as this 1966 one.
