Due Magnum .38 per una città di carogne (1975)

Literal English title: Two Magnum .38s For A City of Scum

The budget of this film must have been extraordinarily low. After all, the star is Dino Strano (otherwise known as Dean Stratford), an extremely unattractive man who somehow manages to have women (who happen to be prostitutes) fall in love with him and marvel at his skills in the bedroom. They are also very supportive of his writing career, which just can’t seem to take off.

Anyhow, one day he decides to kill his girlfriend’s pimp, and from there things go bad and he ends up getting beat up in a garage. So he buys two Magnum .38’s from a guy called “The Gypsy” who speaks with a strong southern Italian accent and . . . it’s time for revenge.

One thing about this film that is noteworthy: the score, by Bruno Nicolai, is absolutely brilliant. The same can’t be said for the rest of the film, but at least it is entertaining, which is more than can be said for a lot of things.

    “Il Vichingo venuto del sud: A very good Lando Buzzanca film about an Italian moving to Sweden Denmark.”
