TRAILER - THE MERCENARY (1968) aka A PROFESSIONAL GUN
He sells death to the highest bidder! Franco Nero is a badass with a machine gun in another Carbucci classic. Walking around to another brilliant Ennio Morricone score, Nero plays a professional soldier for hire. He is employed by a group of revolutionaries to help them defeat both a Colonel and his men, and a wicked sadist named Curly played by Jack Palance (no relation to his character in the Billy Crystal crap fest). This film falls into the Zapata sub-genre of Westerns and joins THE GREAT SILENCE and DJANGO as Carbucci's best work.
See you on forty deuce,
