Beans and Spaghetti with a touch of gunpowder
12 April 2005 | by yonhopeSee all my reviews

Hi, Everyone, This is a very good comedy Western with some great scenes. The faces are wonderful. There is a scene with two very tough bad guys who are dressed in black. One guy looks like Gilbert Roland with a little touch of Robert Goulet. The other looks like either side of a Buffalo nickel.

Beans served in a nice hideaway restaurant under a cow. A Sheriff on crutches. A bath scene with an ending different from Janet Leigh in Psycho.

One reason to watch this for film students in addition to the obvious entertainment is to watch Farley Granger. I first saw this at a drive-in theater when it came out. I was surprised to see Farley doing so well as a bad guy. He had played bad guys before, but in the past his bad guys were vulnerable and confused types. (I recommend Strangers on a Train and Rope.) Murderers, but likable. Here he is a really bad guy. He is great.

Many wonderful scenes in this gem. The bean scenes are not as good as Blazing Saddles, but still very good. The fight scenes are very enjoyable. Bud Spencer is especially fun when he is responding to someone saying, "Good evening, Sheriff." As viewers we find out hints as to Trinity and his brother's childhood. I would like to see a movie based on their mom and them as young 'uns.

My 99 cent DVD was pretty good quality. The music is OK throughout.

Check out the other Farley Granger films, especially when he was young.
