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.
Featured Music: “Death Rides a Horse” by Ennio Morricone; “Ehi Amico C’è Sabata (Alternate Version 2)” by Marcello Giombini; “Parte Prima” by Luis Bacalov; and “Mystic and Severe” by Ennio Morricone.
