Mill Creek Entertainment has added the DVD release of 4 Vengeful Western Films to its Mar. 1 release calendar.
Priced at just $9.98, this classic collection of Spaghetti Westerns kicks off with director Jaime Jesús Balcázar’s 1966 tale of betrayal and revenge, 4 Dollars of Revenge.
Robert Wood (Battle of the Bulge, Pray to God and Dig Your Grave, The Lustful Amazons, etc.) stars as Capt. Dexter, a Union army captain with political ambitions whose last assignment is to deliver a stash of Confederate gold to the U.S. Treasury. But it’s a set up, his men are slaughtered, the gold is stolen and he is charged, found guilty and sentenced to prison for life for masterminding the heist.
Not so fast, Capt. Dexter has other ideas, makes good his escape from prison and rides out for revenge … no mercy for those who set him up!
3 Dollars of Lead (aka: Damned Pistols of Dallas) is a 1964 gem from filmmaker José María Zabalza (Rebels of Arizona, Bullets Over Dallas, etc.). Clay Stone (Fred Beir — The Organization, Fort Courageous, etc.) is just minding his own business as a stage coach passenger when “Fast Draw” (Ángel Álvarez) and his gang rob him and his fellow passengers, including the lovely Katy Dior (Evi Marandi). That was a big mistake, you don’t rob a gunslinger! He hunts down the gang … one by one!
Next up is 7 Dollars to Kill (aka: Seven Dollars on the Red) from director Alberto Cardone and starring Anthony Steffen (Viva! Django, Sabata the Killer, Arizona Colt Returns … and many more) as the survivor of a bloody massacre, who goes in search of his son and the ruthless El Cachal (Fernando Sancho)!
And last, but not least, Mill Creek Entertainment rounds out the 4 Vengeful Western Films collection with director Luigi Batzella’s 1971 film, Paid in Blood, starring Jeff Cameron (Pray to God and Dig Your Grave, Four Came to Kill Sartana, God Is My Colt .45, etc.) sets out for revenge when his brother is robbed and murdered while withdrawing money from the local bank to pay for a big wedding. Suspicion quickly falls on the cheap dancehall girl, Cora (played by the legendary Krista Nell), who was Jeff’s brother’s bride-to-be. Is she behind the plan, or is she just a patsy? Our hero has to sort this out … who does he trust, who does he kill!
