51thVVqKZGL._SY300_Light the Fuse… Sartana Is Coming was the fifth and final film in the official Sartana series. Gianni Garko played the role for the fourth time(George Hilton starred in the middle entry). A number of folks consider this one of the best in the spaghetti genre. Though a good one, not sure I go that far. We get our black clad hero and his awesome line of impossible weapons, a complicated plot, and the usual assortment of supporting characters.

The prize is a half million in gold and two million in counterfeit bills and everyone wants it. Wily roving gunslinger Sartana arrives in a small town looking for it. He’s beset by a group other treacherous characters, including a conniving widow named Senora Belle Manassas(Nieves Navarro, billed as Susan Scott),images fellow gunslinger Grand Full(spaghetti vet Piero Lulli), an unhinged General Monk(José Jaspe), and Sheriff Manassas(Massimo Serato), all looking to get their greedy hands on said fortune.

We get shifting alliances as the prize draws near, the violence and usual gun play of spaghettis to give us a satisfying watch.
