ITALY , Spain | 111 minutes | 1967

The legendary pairing of Tomas Milian and Gian Maria Volonte, a thought-provoking comment on revolution, plus Morricone at his absolute best.
In a word: epic. A tubercular professor travels to the American Southwest for his health, where he meets a ruthless outlaw. Together, they become embroiled in the Mexican revolution, a war zone where morality quickly becomes the biggest challenge. The clash between intellect and instinct sets the stage for a fascinating meditation on human nature, violence and evil. To be seen again and again.
