Guilio Petroni displays his mastery of the spaghetti Western in "Death Rides a Horse" (1967). The story is that of John Phillip Law's Bill Meceita, who witnessed his family being killed by a gang of robbers as a child. When he comes of age, he rides out for revenge and on this way meets up with an ex-robber with a personal vendetta against the same gang. The movie revels in classic Western techniques such as long close-up shots, indiscriminate shooting and musical interludes. The ending is sure to leave the viewer gasping for breath.
