Not that I've seen it, but isn't SONNY AND JED set on a snowy landsacape? There's also the Italian WHITE FANG flicks too.

It might have a scene in the snow but the rest of isn't snowbound.

That`s a terrific film (which I was able to see thanks to you, amigo!), love the isolated and bleak setting. Cut-Throats Nine is set in the snow, as Marc mentioned.  Track Of The Cat starring Robert Mitchum has an incredibly snow-bound atmosphere. The Great Silence is my favorite of the snowy westerns I`ve seen.  I`m sure I`ll think of some others...

I'll have to watch that one again.  It's been a while since I watched it and the only bits I can remember is Giordana's stalking and killing the bad guys in the forest like rambo.  :'(

I seem to remember a short chase scene in the snow in [amazondvd]RUN MAN RUN[/amazondvd] as well,really nice contrast to the heat and dust in the rest of the film.

Giordana and John Ireland have a good chemistry in this film, and I really liked the way they slowly became allies. I`ve mentioned it before, but I`m a big fan of Giordana, he does the tortured protagonist bit really well. [amazondvd]Taste Of Death[/amazondvd] has a genuine sense of snowy isolation, you can almost feel the wind cutting though you when you watch it. I love De Masi`s score too, actually had the Digitmovies cd before I got a copy of the film from you.

Gotta love westerns set in snowy landscapes. [amazondvd]Pale Rider[/amazondvd] was a snowy one. My two favourites are [amazondvd]The Great Silence[/amazondvd] and [amazondvd]Track of the Cat[/amazondvd]. [amazondvd]Track of the Cat[/amazondvd] is weird and stagey to begin with, but once set outdoors it's great, and Mitchum's bright red coat stands out nicely against the snow.

[amazondvd]Death Hunt[/amazondvd] with Charles Bronson. A little gem.

Not italian... But the ending of Altman's "[amazondvd]McCabe & Mrs. Miller[/amazondvd]" is snowbound... The whole snow thing and ending actually reminded me of [amazondvd]The Great Silence[/amazondvd] (my all time favorite western)...
I also wonder if the Leonard Cohen soundtrack/songs on this movie had an influence over Keoma (since Franco Nero mentionned Leonard Cohen in the dvd interview...)

[amazondvd]TASTE OF DEATH[/amazondvd] is excellent and i started a thread about it a short while ago.I'd be interested to know if theres a decent widescreen dvd available?

[amazondvd]A MAN CALLED SLEDGE[/amazondvd] also starts very memorably with a stagecoach heist in a blizzard. :-X
