Joe… cercati un posto per morire! (1968)

Find a Place to Die is a remake of the American western Garden of Evil. After a long fight with a gang of killers led by Chanto (Mario Dardanelli), Lisa (Pascale Petit) escapes with her life while her husband does not. She hires a former Confederate officer named Joe Collins (Jeffrey Hunter) and another gang to gain revenge. But all that gold that Lisa and her husband had found — plus her beauty — put everyone against each other.

There’s also the crazy character of Reverend Riley, a man of the cloth who doesn’t deny himself the pleasures of the flesh. Played by Alfredo Lastretti, he’s the best part of this movie.

Director Giuliano Carnimeo made Light the Fuse… Sartana Is Coming, Have a Nice Funeral on Me, Amigo… Sartana, Sartana’s Here… Trade Your Pistol for a Coffin and I Am Sartana, Your Angel of Death under the name Anthony Ascott, as well as They Call Him CemeteryThe Case of the Bloody Iris and Ratman. He co-wrote the film with Lamberto Benvenuti, who made The Legacy of Caine.

Sadly, a year after this movie, Hunter was injured in an explosion gone wrong making the crime movie Cry Chicago (¡Viva América!). On his way back to the U.S., he went into shock and couldn’t speak or move. Doctors could only find a displaced vertebra and a concussion, yet within seven months, he would suffer an intracranial hemorrhage while walking down the stairs at his home, crack his skull and die after brain surgery was not successful. He was only 42.
