"ONE OF THE BEST SPAGHETTI WESTERNS!"
--Craig Ledbetter The Good, The Bad and the Violent



original Italian title REQUIEM PER UN GRINGO (1967)
also known as REQUIEM FOR DJANGO and DUEL IN THE ECLIPSE

director Jose Luis Merino and Eugenio Martin
starring Lang Jeffries Femi Benussi Fernando Sancho Carlo Gaddi Aldo Sambrell Marisa Paredes


Ross Logan is a gunfighter who vows vengeance for his murdered brother at the hands of Porfirio Carranza and his outlaw gang. While the plot would become rather typical of the Spaghetti Western genre, this one has a lot to recommend. Bounty hunter Ross Logan (played by Canadian Lang Jeffries) is a mesmerizing character: book-smart, stoic and resilient. Besides being a top-notch marksman, he has a strong interest in astrology and meteorological conditions. Ross uses these 'sciences' to his advantage against the less-educated varmints of the West, allowing him to operate in a - seemingly - supernatural zone [for example, he has an advantage in a gunfight by calculation of an upcoming eclipse].

The movie is full of 'Sergio Leone' macho brooding, lots of gunfights with spectacular kills (great stunt work), scuzzy close ups, beautiful women [some of the most attractive to appear in a Euro Western], stunning cinematography from Mario Pacheco and a pulsating musical score from underrated Angelo Lavagnino.
