Movie Info

Shakespeare is combined with the spaghetti western in this interesting offering. Though the language is modernized, the plot is basically the same as Hamlet. In this version, the hero does not die--instead he rides off into the sunset.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Hamlet (Quella sporca storia nel west)

½

It goes without saying that Hamlet fits the italo western genre conventions like a glove. A story of revenge and betrayal, with Castellari's strong and moody direction, Demasi's soundtrack, and a solid cast this one rises above other similar offers in the genre. The final confrontation lacks a better climax, but still a good flick on all fronts.
