Pic of the Day

Today's image is an Italian poster from the criminally underrated Sergio Corbucci's classic 1970 Spaghetti Western Vamos a matar, compañeros, or simply Compañeros as it's known here in the U.S. Set during a Mexican revolution, this film stars Franco Nero (Django, Keoma), Tomas Milian (The Big Gundown, Don't Torture a Duckling), Fernando Rey (star of many of Luis Buñuel's films, including the same year's Tristana alongside Nero), and Jack Palance (Contempt, Shane) in perhaps his most memorable role, this film features many brilliant performances and one of Ennio Morricone's best scores. An absolute must-see for genre fans and film buffs.
