                                                   "I'm your pallbearer"

 Gianni Garko stars here as Sartana.  Now I'm not sure if this Sartana has any relation to the Sartana in the other bunch of movies they used his name in but here it seems like Sartana has some supernatural powers working for him and it's not up until the very end that we find out if this is true or not.  This adds certain spooky horror-elements to the film and even has our main man returning from the dead like a zombie or something.  Klaus Kinski shows up for a bit as a knife-flinging assassin who wears bells on his boots(which seems like a bad-idea for a guy who needs to sneak up on people a lot).  You also get the stereotypical cackling old man, a creepy casket-maker/gravedigger guy and the leader of the Mexican bandits(Fernando Sancho) plays this same role in just about every other spaghetti-western out there.  There's some good stylish action in this one even if it coulda gave us some more Kinski goodness.  AKA GUNFIGHTERS DIE HARDER
