Moviedrome Mondays: Requiescant (1967)

Since I could not find a youtube video link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing director Carlo Lizzani’s 1967 spaghetti western Requiescant, readers will have to rely on Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was September 6, 1993 (read here). Not much to add here except to say that I agree with every single word of praise that Cox lavishes on this genuine spaghetti western gem.
