Buy 'Grand Duel', not this!
on 3 July 2016
The quality of this earlier print, sold as Storm Rider, is terrible; think VHS quality! After watching it (and loving the film) I bought the Blue Underground version packaged as Grand Duel- it's NTSC but it's actually region free so plays fine in the UK. It's available now on Amazon for roughly the same price.
Of the film, once you've bought the right version, it's not only one of Lee Van Cleef's best but one of the best spaghetti westerns. You can read the plot in other reviews, the story is great, LVC is on top form but for me the villians made it- the Saxons are really creepy and theatrical and elevate the picture above its low budget tropes. Their theatricality also puts emphasis on visuals which helps with the poor dubbing that comes as standard with the genre.
