3 Halunken und ein Halleluja: Directed by Mario Bava. With Brett Halsey, Marilù Tolo, Charles Southwood, Teodoro Corrà. Two gunmen, a Native American con-woman and a priest-turned-gangster alternate between fighting and aiding each other over obtaining a treasure map that will lead them to buried gold.

“A rollicking spoof of the Spaghetti Western genre, u0026quot;Roy Colt u0026amp; Winchester Jacku0026quot; offers some fun for fans of the genre, although ultimately itu0026#39;s awfully silly stuff. American actors Brett Halsey and Charles Southwood star as the title characters, members of the same outlaw gang. Roy goes his own way, hoping that heu0026#39;ll be able to successfully go straight. But Roy, Jack, and others all end up on the trail of some hidden gold, with other people such as flamboyant villain u0026quot;The Reverendu0026quot; (Teodoro Corra) and self-serving, materialistic Indian prostitute Manila (Marilu Tolo) also playing key roles in the proceedings.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlthough a far cry from the best work of Italian maestro Mario Bava, itu0026#39;s still a definite curiosity that his admirers will want to check out. Itu0026#39;s a real change of pace for the filmmaker; rarely did he embrace comedy this thoroughly. While not always terribly funny – it does wear a little thin – it canu0026#39;t be denied that itu0026#39;s a very lively film that delivers some reasonably rousing action scenes. The performances are suited to the material. Halsey and Southwood have good chemistry; both are handsome, charismatic stars. Corra is way over the top as the effeminate bad guy who absolutely hates the feeling of being cold. But itu0026#39;s the gorgeous Tolo who often steals the show; her character really is something. In one hysterical sequence, she insists that Jack take a bath – in cold water – before sheu0026#39;ll agree to make love to him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBavasu0026#39; creation of visuals and camera work are typically stylish, helping to keep this modest diversion watchable for a decently paced 86 minutes. It definitely ends on a real high note.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSix out of 10.”
