From anomie to spaghetti: Monte Hellman leaves his existential American west for Leone territory (the film was Italian financed and shot in Spain) in this 1978 story of a gunman (Fabio Testi) hired to kill a farmer obstructing the construction of a new railroad line; the gun backs off when he falls in love with the intended target’s wife, but the wife decides to finish the job for him. Made at the end of the Italian spaghetti-western cycle, the film never achieved U.S. commercial booking, though some critics see it as the genre’s final flowering. With Jenny Agutter and, in a small role, Mr. Western Machismo himself, Sam Peckinpah; the cinematography is by Fellini’s Giuseppe Rotunno.
