Lee, Daniel and Paul are back to tackle one of the greatest films in the Spaghetti Western genre (and one of the most depressing), in Sergio Corbucci’s “The Great Silence”. Listener comments and what they’ve watched as of late are also briefly touched upon in this briefer than usual episode. Make no mistake, however: a lot is discussed in regards to the film itself.

In this installment of the podcast’s Spaghetti Western series, Daniel and Paul each have a separate conversation with Lee about three non-Leone Lee Van Cleef outings. Covered in this episode are “Death Rides a Horse” (1967); “Sabata” (1969); and “The Grand Duel” (1972). Besides just going on about what a badass Van Cleef is in these films, common tropes and themes between the three films are talked about, and the general trends of the twilight years of the genre. A lot is talked about and there’s a bit more music than usual, so this is a long one. Strap yourselves in, kids.

The whole gang is back together to kick-off the podcast’s first look at Spaghetti westerns by talking about what is, perhaps, the second most well-known character of the genre, after Clint Eastwood’s Man with No Name. Yes, on tap is Sergio Corbucci’s “Django” (1966). The only true sequel, “Django Strikes Again” (1987), is also briefly talked about, and Lee gives some suggestions on which of the thirty or so unofficial sequels are worth checking out. Also covered: listener comments and Paul gets to play the There Can be Only One… Filmography game.
