Wild East presents two Spaghetti Westerns featuring German actor Peter Lee Lawrence (a.k.a. Karl Hirenbach). In Hands Up, Dead Man! You're Under Arrest (1971) Lawrence plays Sando Kid, who, during the Civil War, watches helplessly as Union Captain Grayson guns down wounded Confederate soldiers who have already surrendered. Years later, after joining the Texas Rangers, Kid goes undercover to exact revenge on Grayson, who is strong-arming innocent ranchers into selling their land in order to make a killing from the railroad that will need right of way once the tracks are laid. Entertaining genre favorite Aldo Sambrell plays Grayson with Espartaco Santoni (Lisa And The Devil) as Dollar, a bounty hunter ranger who helps Kid in the final showdown with Grayson's gang.
The inept Leon Klimovsky is credited director, but the film was actually helmed by its producer, Sergio Bergonzelli. The rollicking score is by Allesandro Allesandroni, Ennio Morricone's whistler from Fistful Of Dollars and many others.
In Revenge of the Resurrected (1973), Lawrence plays a sketch artist named Kit, who witnesses the murders of a stagecoach full of people, including his father. Although the killers are masked, each has a distinctive feature to his clothing that Kit sketches in order to later identify the gang, all of whom are prominent citizens of a nearby town. Kit assumes the secret identity of "The Resurrected" and posts note accusing each killer one by one until they all expose themselves.
Prolific director Rafael Romero Marchant co-scripted the screenplay with Spanish actor Luis Gaspar with an assist from Ernesto Gastaldi (My Name Is Nobody, The Price of Power, Once Upon A Time . . . In America and many more).
Sit back and enjoy these two fast-moving Westerns in their anamorphic uncut Euro versions.
