The Mercenary: Classic 70s Spaghetti Western

The Belcourt's Sergio Corbucci sampling continues with The Mercenary: "Amid the tumult of the Mexican Revolution, a Polish mercenary (Franco Nero) and a Mexican guerilla (Tony Musante) join forces against a rich colonel (Eduardo Fajardo) and a sadistic American out for revenge (Jack Palance). Sergio Corbucci's tale of revolution, similar to Leone's DUCK, YOU SUCKER, emphasizes the tension between greed and idealism as motivating factors in times of upheaval.  Corbucci essentially remade the film with many of the same actors in similar roles two years later under the title COMPAÑEROS." Check out the fantastic trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbvUrq72T74
