Yankee

Starring Philippe Leroy as Yankee and Adolfo Celi as Grande Concho.

Directed by Tinto Brass.

Shame this is Brass' only western because i thought it was quite good, good cinematography also and a nice melodic score.

I liked it as well,would have probably been even better if the producer hadn't interfered with it.

"In addition to wanting to make a comic-book movie, Brass endeavored also to take film grammar one step further by the use of visual synecdoche, inspired by Chinese and Japanese pictographic writing, in which a part is used to represent the whole. So instead of showing a gunman, he would show the tip of the gun barrel; instead of showing a horse approaching, he would show the horse’s ear; and so forth. Sadly, his ideas have largely been removed from the film, since the producer, horrified by the dailies, fired Brass just as he was completing the editing, and even got into a fistfight with him.

DISOWNERSHIP: The studio boss hired Juan Oliver to fix the movie and delete the bulk of the synecdoche. Brass sued the studio and won the right to delete his directorial credit from the movie. That’s why the original prints of the film were credited as “Un film di Antony Luc,” a play on the name of the co-producer. Finding that having a fake name and no director’s credit was impeding boxoffice sales, the producers reached a financial settlement whereby the film would be “Un film di Tinto Brass,” though there would still be no director credited."

this film was definitely a shocker when i first watched it.  really drives home Brass' overall mastery of the film medium. 
fun to play it for Brass erotica purists.
