Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The original Ringo films introduced another iconic hero to the spaghetti western; a clean-cut sharp shooter who was markedly different to Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name.

In A Pistol For Ringo, the eponymous hero, played by Giuliano Gemma (Day of Anger, Tenebrae), infiltrates a ranch of Mexican bandits to save a beautiful hostage (Nieves Navarro, Death Walks on High Heels). In The Return Of Ringo, the gunslinger, now a veteran of war, disguises himself as a Mexican in order to take revenge on outlaws who have stolen his property and taken his wife.

Hugely successful upon their original release, thanks in part to the skilled direction of Duccio Tessari (The Bloodstained Butterfly, Death Occurred Last Night), the Ringo films proved influential on the Italian western, spawning numerous unofficial sequels, due to their gripping set-pieces and unforgettable musical scoring by Ennio Morricone. Arrow Video is proud to present both films in sumptuous new restorations that truly brings their stylish cinematography to life.

Excellent Italian Westerns!

This was my first taste of Italian Westerns (outside of the classic Clint Eastwood films by Leone). Wow! These blew me away! The first film is almost a romantic-action-comedy-western. What a hoot! Thoroughly enjoyed it. The second film is a slow-burn revenge story that is so tonally different than the first one, that it took me by surprise the first time I saw it. Definitely will revisit this one later. The disc is stacked with excellent supplements which really helped me appreciate the genre and films. This disc is highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of the genre, or even though who want to 'test the waters' of this fascinating piece of Western Cinema history.
