Two more reviews from Optimum’s upcoming Western Classics collection (due in September), and this time they are both Westerns and of the Italian variety:
Man of the East (1972) – a light hearted Terence Hill film sees him playing a post Englishman sent to the Old West by his father to be made into a man. The script needed a little tweaking but Hill is always enjoyable and this is recommended to his fans. The film is not yet released in the US but available from Scandinavia and the Netherlands, and rumoured to be due from Koch Media in Germany later this year.
The Hills Run Red (1966) – a more serious Western from the genre’s boom year, this has not the most original storyline but the script is solid as is the direction while Henry Silva gives an outstanding performance. Previously released in the US on an identical DVD.
