Since I could not find a youtube video link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing director Sergio Sollima’s 1967 spaghetti western Face to Face, readers will have to rely on Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was August 29, 1993 (read here). While 1966’s The Big Gundown still ranks as my number one favorite of Sollima’s spaghetti westerns, Face to Face, not to mention Run, Man, Run! made the following year, prove to be every bit as electrifying. Speaking of which, it has been alleged that Sollima considered Face to Face to be his personal favorite of the bunch (read here). If any of you readers are interested, here is a link to my favorite Sergio Sollima films (read here).
