SPAGHETTI-HEROES: DJANGO, SARTANA, RINGO book is now out in Germany !

260 Page, english & german lang, color,

From the book:
"RINGO – A man who was one of the most notorious gunfighters of the Old West and whose name is legendary. A name which frequently inspired countless writers and film directors to come up with new exciting stories. A gun man who didn’t always ride on the side of the law in his lifetime and who became a hero in the western movies.
DJANGO – The man with the coffin. The lone wolf who fought for survival in rough and violent times. The relentless avenging angel who rode side by side with an invisible companion – Death…
SARTANA – The traveling salesman selling death. The gentleman among the ruthless killers of the West. The elegant gambler with the deft fingers whose cards were shuffled by the devil himself....

They are the most famous heroes of that film genre which was both doomed and smiled at by the critics and drove members of the Boards of Film Censors up the wall, and which still opened new ways for the western film in Europe and made it popular again: They are the heroes of the Spaghetti Western.
Ringo, Django and Sartana finally gave a name to that taciturn stranger – and each of these names became legend!

RINGO – No man was faster with a gun.
DJANGO – He was the toughest hero in the history of the western film..
SARTANA – His game was killing – his stakes were six cartridges and a life.
They were hard, cruel, adamant. Around them was a touch of Death.

This book tells the exciting story of these heroes and their companions, „Gringo“ and „Rocco“. It takes the reader along on an exciting and entertaining trip to accompany the heroes of the Spaghetti Western on their most dangerous adventures. Numerous impressive, action packed and rare pictures enhance this book which will give the fans of the Italian western an opportunity to meet „their“ favourite screen hero again and thrill those movie lovers who couldn’t cotton up with the Spaghetti Western yet. In any case, however, this book is a unique, ostensive, and essential work of reference on the Spaghetti Western, and western film lovers and those who want to become fans of the western genre are going to enjoy it!"
