Day of Anger movie poster


This 1967 spaghetti western stars a master of that genre, Lee Van Cleef, as an aging gunfighter. In an effort to regain his fearsome reputation, Van Cleef shoots down a local Sheriff. He then finds he must deal with his young protégé, Giuliano Gemma, who happened to be the Sheriff's best friend. The climactic showdown finds Van Cleef facing down his former pupil, Gemma, with each man knowing the other's every move and thought. Also known as Day of Anger, this superior Italian oater was directed by onetime Sergio Leone assistant, Tonino Valerii.
