The Last Killer

The Last Killer -sometimes called Django, the Last Killer, is a 1968 Spaghetti Western. It stars George Eastman, in his first film, and Anthony Ghidra. Giuseppe Vari directs. It's a bit slow to develop, but I enjoyed watching it. This reminds me a bit of Day of Anger. Of course, that one has Lee Van Cleef, and this one doesn't, but, then, nothing's perfect.

youtube has it online: says it's
a nice little western, well-directed and well-acted, both Ghidra and Eastman are excellent. Eastman calls it one of his favourite westerns. According to him, Serbian actor Ghidra was initially chosen for his face, but to many people's surprise, he turned out to be an excellent actor, one of the better within the genre.
