Sartana’s Here… Trade Your Pistol for a Coffin (1970)

Guiliano Carnimeo directs George Hilton, Charles Southwood and Erika Blanc in this spaghetti western where Sartana and a dandy circle a gold shipment everyone wants a piece of.

Regular Sartana actor Gianni Garko is replaced by a bland nobody. Erika Blanc does noticeable work as the town’s flame haired Madame in the wings. Charles Southwood’s parasol sporting white hat is a strange enough presence in the action legs but he can’t carry the character off in close-up. An overly complicated plot loses the attention, Franco de Masi’s rhythmic guitar score does all the heavy lifting in terms of excitement. Wearying otherwise.
