Exploitation Retrospect | The Journal of Junk Culture and Fringe Media
Ruthless Four aka Ognuno Per Se (1968)
Review by Bruce Walsh

Giorgio Capitani directs this Spaghetti Western with an all-star (you might have heard of them) cast: Van Heflin as Sam Cooper, a gold prospector who hit the mother lode; and, George Hilton as Manolo Sanchez, the only guy Cooper could trust because he raised Sanchez after his parents were killed.

Then K2 turns up as the Blonde who "took care" of Sanchez after Cooper (?). Mistrust breeds desperation. Cooper recruits Gilbert Roland (as Mason, an ex-friend) to be a bodyguard.

This is a wonderful guide to greed, gold, and guns. A True Western with classic Italian gunfights.
