If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death (1968)

Couple of stagecoaches are robbed by two different gangs, a gang led by Morgan (Klaus Kinski) and another gang led by Lasky (William Berger). Both robberies go awry, Sartana kills all the Morgans men, except Morgan and Lasky's gang is killed by Lasky himself, but it turn out that the strongbox they robbed is full of stones and not gold. Morgan and Lasky team up to get Sartana out of their way.

I have to say that i didn't like this film. The main character was just too slick. Sort of poor man's version of the characters played usually by the great Lee Van Cleef. Kinski was as stable as ever, but that just was not enough to save the film. Lots of things happening all the time in this movie, everybody betraying everybody, everyone is after the gold. Sartana stepping in and killing the bad guys. It gets pretty confusing after a while...

Like i said this one was not my "bowl of spaghetti". Maybe i give it another spin sometime in future just to see if it gets any better when you have some kind of crasp of the story. Directed by Gianfranco Parolini.
