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 in 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.
