Movie Info

Genre specialist Mario Bava takes a rare trip out to the plains in this rousing comedy-Western that turns the work of iconic spaghetti Western specialist Sergio Leone on its head. When Roy Colt (Brett Halsey) and Winchester Jack (Charles Southwood) fail to make a living at living dishonestly, Roy resolves to dissolve the partnership and earn an honest dollar in Carson City. Unexpectedly greeted upon arrival at Carson City with a badge and a gun, newfound sheriff Roy gets that old familiar feeling when the nervous citizens entrust him with a replica of a stolen treasure map that is said to lead to a bounty of buried gold. Unfortunately for Roy, the mysterious Reverend Teodoro Corra, a dynamite-toting Russian outlaw; his old partner Jack; a Jewish desperado named Berenstein (Mauro Bosco); and a wanted Native American seductress (Maril¨ Tolo) are also gunning for the gold. By the time Roy reaches the Indian burial ground where the gold is said to be buried, it's anyone's guess as to who will get the gold first. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Difficult to sit through and is roundly considered one of Bava's worst films.

Audience Reviews for Roy Colt e Winchester Jack (Roy Colt and Winchester Jack)

There are some great things about Roy Colt & Winchester Jack, but there are a lot more bad things about it. Mario Bava (who proves that westerns are not his bag) sets up some damn great shots, some that would rival Sergio Leone given a good cinematographer. But the music, overall flimsy plot (I know that Bava was never strong in that department, but this is abuse) and from out of left field Benny Hill-like whorehouse scene just kind of do it in. Too much comedy to be taken seriously--despite how silly "The Reverend" was. And not to sound like a sexist dick, but if some native girl is running off with my gold, I'm going to turn her skull into an ashtray instead of playing grabass with my buddy. But that's just me...

I'm so clean that it's disgusting.

In 1870 California it is the wild west and gold is flowing. Roy Colt and Winchester Jack are close friends, but they find themselves on the opposite side of the law and the opposite side of a girl's heart. They will work together to get out of some bad situations and finally have a final duel over the gold and girl.

"You killed the driver? Now I have to drive too!"

Mario Bava, director of Kill, Baby, Kill; A Bay of Blood; The Evil Eye; Black Sunday; Blood Brides; Planet of the Vampires; Black Sabbath; and Blood and Black Lace, delivers Roy Colt and Winchester Jack. The storyline for this picture is interesting and unfolds well. I enjoyed the dialogue and thought the acting was solid. The cast includes Brett Halsey, Mariluo Tolo, Charles Southwood, and Federico Boido.

"We herby elect you sheriff."

I came across this Mario Bava film and couldn't wait to watch a rare non-horror film by Bava. I thought the film was very well done and entertaining. If you're a fan of the slapstick fun classic westerns, this is a must see. I felt this was better than many of Bava's horror films. I recommend giving this a shot.

"Sometimes I scare myself."

Grade: B

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect out of this Western entry in the Mario Bava boxset, but I have to admit that as far as the genre goes, this one was pretty watchable. Definitely not what I'd expect from Bava during the normal run of things, but it's interesting to see that he dipped his toe into all manner of cinema during his career.

Worth a look.
