This Giallo is practically unknown, and that's a real shame as Puzzle is an outstanding example of the genre. Director Duccio Tessari made the excellent Giallo 'The Bloodstained Butterfly' three years before this film, and the two share the same keenness to buck as many plotting trends as possible; as while this film firmly fits into the Giallo in terms of style, the plot takes the focus away from common Giallo elements such as sex and murder and puts it more on the characters and an intriguing plot involving amnesia. The film is also known as 'Man Without Memory', and that is down the fact that the central character, Peter, has lost his memory. He's being treated in a hospital, and it's not long before a mysterious stranger turns up and accuses Peter of double-crossing him. We later learn that peter is really Edward, and he's married to the beautiful Sara. He finds out about his wife and travels to Italy in order to meet up with her; although she has chiselled out a new life for herself which involves a male friend named Reinhardt, and a young kid with a crush on her... Director Duccio Tessari uses the first half of the film to get the plot basics in place, and as a consequence it's not always exciting. However, the director manages to hold the audience's attention long enough for the film to begin revealing itself in the second act. Puzzle was scripted by Giallo luminary Ernesto Gastaldi, and the film represents one of his best works, which says a lot considering the ... Less

Not all of the slapstick works, but there are more hits than misses. Frankly I think the humor and production values are better here than all but the first of "Trinity" western-comedies. The English dubbing is not "awful," as one reviewer stated. It's actually better than in many spaghetti Westerns. I liked the attention to detail in the depiction of even minor characters, like the bank employees & dishonest doctor who encases one brother in a total body cast. While I agree the American distributors were guilty of giving this film an terrible "let's cash on on a better movie" title, I don't think seeing the prelude would have added much.The picture already seems a bit too long, with a throw in the kitchen sink approach to the screen writing ("Then's let's have them try this and fail, an then this..."), when a plot more focused on one or two criminal acts might have been better. I also watched this as part of the Mill Creek 20 pack, mostly to get Monte Hellman's "China 9, Liberty 32" and "The Big Gundown" I have only found one (so far) that was truly unwatchable ("Apache Blood"). My main complaint is being deprived, in most cases, of seeing the films in the original Techniscope widescreen process (similar to Superscope but invented at Technicolor's Italian lab), which, through setting the number of frames per inch of film higher in the camera, used only half as much film as Cinemascope or Panavision did. Some complained they could see more grain in the projected image in theaters, but in many cases that worked to the film's advantage, contributing to a gritty washed out look. As with Superscope (now called Super 35), the anamorphic squeeze was done in the lab on an optical printer, enabling the directors to use normal rather than expensive anamorphic lenses in shooting these movies. Unlike Techniscope, Superscope used a normal frame in the camera, so did not save any film stock. The price of film stock was a large part of the cost of making feature movies back then. Now, with digital video, it's not an issue. Less

CORRECTION on the opening text: *. . .not to compare TWO great artists.. .* Our apologies for that.WATCH THE VIDEO FROM THE VERY FIRST SECOND TO THE LASTREAD THIS DESCRIPTION FROM THE VERY FIRST WORD TO THE LAST.Having accomplished these, you now have every right to watch the video and post your comments ::Thanks to a great friend who created this video for us.NOTE 1:This video aims not to compare but to show the viewers how the interpretation of the song EBB TIDE has evolved from a 1968 rendition by an Italian Diva Mina Mazzini to a 1987 studio recording by the Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez. NOTE 2: The video featuring Mina Mazzini is the actual MTV being aired on TV back in the 60's as an ad material. (Director: Duccio Tessari) And hence, you are seein' the ITALIAN Diva MINA as how she looked like in the 60's in B&W. You may also check out her live rendition of this.NOTE 3: Asia's Songbird Regine V. didn't have an MTV for this; she only recorded this for her debut album titled REGINE back in 1987. And she has just celebrated her 20th year in the music industry this year as the most-valued Asian Diva . Hence, the audio you're hearin' now is by the 17 yr old Regine; and the Regine you are seein' on the video is from the footages of an MTV (Director: Louie Ignacio) for a song she recorded back in 2004 (album: COVERS Vol 1), and this is Regine in 2004. You may also check out other videos of Regine Velasquez paying tribute to barbara Streisand as one of the many influences to her 20 year music career; since Mina and Barbara are contemporaries. Note 4: Feel free to post comparative comments but make sure they won't go beyond what's ethically allowable and tolerable. Be as objective as possible. otherwise, I shall delete your comments. My apologies in advance. Note 5: ENJOY ! Recent pictures of Regine Velasquez are shown at the end of the video. Video Presentation courtesy of IsayGabriel Less

www.spaghetti-western.net Il ritorno di Ringo / The Return of Ringo / Ringo kommt zurück / Gnade spricht Gott - Amen mein Colt Italy 1965 Director: Duccio Tessari With Giuliano Gemma, Fernando Sancho, George Martin, Lorella de Luca, Nieves Navarro, Antonio Casas Screenplay: Duccio Tessari, Fernando Di Leo, Alfonso Balcazar Cinematography: Francisco Marín Music: Ennio Morricone The only 'official' sequel to Tessari's very popular A Pistol For Ringo, also starring Giuliano Gemma, this film is a loose retelling of the ancient greek story of The Odyssey. Gemma, as Montgomery Brown, plays the Odysseus / Ulysses role, returning from the civil war where he was presumed to have died, to find his house overrun by bandits and his wife engaged to one of the leaders, Paco Fuentes, played by the always devilish George Martin. In an attempt to discover if his wife, Hally, has remained faithful, he dyes his hair and takes on the disguise of a mestizo peasant, gradually gaining access to his old home and learning in the process that he has a daughter who is being used by Paco as a hold on Hally in order to make her compliant in his desire to marry her. Rallying the townspeople into action, Ringo sets about defeating the Fuentes brothers and winning back his family. Less

www.spaghetti-western.net Per un pugno di dollari / A Fistful of Dollars / Für eine Handvoll Dollar Italy / Spain / West Germany 1964 Director: Sergio Leone With Clint Eastwood, Gian Maria Volonte, José Calvo, Marianne Koch, Mario Brega, Aldo Sambrell, Benito Stefanelli Screenplay: Sergio Leone, Victor Andre Cantena, Fernando di Leo, Jamie Comas, Duccio Tessari Cinematography: Massimo Dallamano Music: Ennio Morricone By the time Sergio Leone made this film, Italians had already produced about 20 films ironically labelled "spaghetti westerns." Leone approached the genre with great love and humor. Although the plot was admittedly borrowed from Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961), Leone managed to create a work of his own that would serve as a model for many films to come. Clint Eastwood plays a cynical gunfighter who comes to a small border town and offers his services to two rivaling gangs. Neither gang is aware of his double play, and each thinks it is using him, but the stranger will outwit them both. The picture was the first installment in a cycle commonly known as the "Dollars" trilogy. Later, United Artists, who distributed it in the US, coined another term for it: the "Man With No Name" trilogy. While not as impressive as its follow-ups For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966), A Fistful of Dollars contains all of Leone's eventual trademarks: taciturn characters, precise framing, extreme close-ups, and the haunting music of Ennio ...

Seeking to avenge the murder of his close friend Miguel de la Serna, the strong and swashbuckling Diego de la Vega (Alain Delon) takes on his name and masquerades as the weak and ineffectual governor of the New World territory of Nuova Aragon. For many generations, the land has been harshly ruled by a military dictatorship, most recently by the evil Colonel Huerta (Stanley Baker), the man behind Diego's friend's slaying. Not believing the seemingly weak new governor to be a threat, Huerta and his soldiers continue their greedy, cruel exploitation of the good people of Nuova Aragon, despite the fight for justice mounted by the monk Brother Francisco (Giampiero Albertini) and the beautiful aristocrat Hortensia (Ottavia Piccolo). But hope is on the horizon with Diego's transformation into Zorro, a dashing, black-clad masked outlaw-hero who defends the people of the land against tyranny and lets his presence be known by leaving his mark on the scene--a sword-slash of the letter "Z." Concocting an elaborate scheme as Diego to outwit as Huerta and also raising his sword as Zorro to defeat Huerta's men, Diego/Zorro, a man with two guises, leads the people of Nuova Aragon in a fight for their freedom. Revenge and justice are ultimately served in a climactic duel between Huerta and Zorro. nnCopyrights: Somerville HousennDirector: Duccio Tessari nnCast: Alain Delon, Ottavia Piccolo, Enzo Cerusico, Stanley Baker, Moustache, Marino Masé, Giampiero AlbertininnRunning Time: 120 minutesnnFormat: Widescreen 1.85:1 nnRating: PGnnCountry: France/ItalynnLanguage: EnglishnnTotal Running Time: 124 minutesnnAvailability: USA and Canada Less

LE DERNIER JOUR DE LA COLÈRE–I GIORNI DELL’ IRA Un film de Tonino Valerii(co-réalisateur avec Sergio Leone de : Mon Nom est Personne)Musique : Riz Ortolani Avec Lee Van Cleef & Giuliano Gemma. Le film contient certaines parties en vostf puisqu’il s’agit d’une version intégrale restaurée intégrant des parties jamais doublées. SYNOPSIS : Souffre-douleur de la petite ville de Clifton, Scott(Giuliano Gemma),est méprisé par la population qui le charge des pires corvées. Jusqu'au jour où Talby(Lee Van Cleef),un redoutable pistolero,arrive en ville et prend la défense de Scott. Ce dernier lui voue alors une admiration sans bornes et ne le quitte plus d'une semelle. Talby le prend sous son aile et décide de faire de lui un tueur. LEE VAN CLEEF-(9/01/1925 à Somerville-16/12/1989 à Oxnard, U.S.A),acteur américain connu pour ses rôles dans des westerns. A servi dans la Navy durant la 2ème Guerre mondiale. Il était un spécialiste des rôles de méchant(Le train sifflera trois fois). Suite à un grave accident de voiture, il mit fin à sa carrière et fut redécouvert par Sergio Leone pour "Et pour quelques dollars de plus". Ce premier grand rôle marquera le début de sa seconde carrière dans le cinéma. Il devint une star internationale dans les années 70. GIULIANO GEMMA- (2/09/1938 à Rome,Italie), débute au cinéma avec une apparition dans Ben Hur,puis dans Le Guépard de Visconti. En France,il incarne Nicolas dans la série des Angélique. Le succès viendra en 1965 quand il tourne sous la direction de Duccio Tessari un Italian western culte "Un pistolet pour Ringo". L'engouement suscité par ce film engendrera une suite intitulée "Le retour de Ringo". Cet acteur doté d'un indéniable charisme,participera à de nombreuses productions du genre. Giuliano a abordé divers genres(notamment des films en duo avec Bud Spencer). Il obtiendra son plus grand rôle dans Le Désert des Tartares(1976),de Valerio Zurlini, adapté du roman de Dino Buzzati.
