3 film, 3 disc collection of the Sabata series of Spaghetti Westerns. Song/MGM R1 USA boxset.
all the Spaghetti West's gun toting anti-heros, Sabata is one of the
least known. With just six title-role films, and a couple of cameos, he is hardly an equal to
the likes of Django or Sartana. But the three films included here are
all fun and entertaining, chock-full of clever tricks and action packed
finalés. Although never reaching the peak of some of the other
1960 euro-Westerns, this set is recommended for fans looking for a less
intense visit to the Old West.
boxset provides impressive, original scope widescreen and fully uncut
prints of the three Alberto Grimaldi produced Sabata films. Although
the lack of extras is not surprising considering that most of the lead
cast are no longer alive to be interviewed, and the set does retail for
a budget price, the lack of original trailers (apparently on the
Japanese DVDs) is rather disappointing.
