Sir Chris Frayling provides a commentary for the middle film in the Dollars Trilogy, and as you might expect of a knight, it's dry but informative.

Frayling's primary source appears to be his own fantastic Leone biography "Something To Do With Death", and many anecdotes from the actors and technicians that appear in this book are repeated here.

In his spotting of biblical and painterly references he's perhaps a little too scholarly, but there's little to fault the wealth of Spaghetti Western knowledge he carries in his head. His scene by scene identification of filming locations, for instance, would be of great assistance to anyone planning a visit to Southern Spain in homage of the great Sergio.

In short - slightly dull but a good 'un.

A really impressive contribution from a commentator steeped in spaghetti western knowledge. I am not familiar with Frayling's previous work as the poster above me is and was blown away by how all-encompassing his expertise of Leone is, from casual reflections to intricately researched historical observations this commentary is filled to the brim with fascinating facts about the film and the entire genre as well as the time period it's set in. Recommended.
