"Those must be the real bandits!"

Mr. Mouse and I had to go to Best Buy this weekend for something and as we were standing there in the checkout line, we spotted what may be one of our best buys (har har) ever: a 5-disc DVD set of spaghetti Westerns, twenty movies, over 32 viewing hours, all for $6.99.  We watched the first movie last night - a gem entitled Beyond the Law and starring Lee Van Cleef and Antonio Sabato*.  Mr. Mouse is mostly excited because these movies are all short, between 85 and 114 minutes; I'm happy because other stars include Jack Palance, Klaus Kinski and William Shatner.
* Father of General Hospital's former hunk, Antonio Sabato Jr.  And boy howdee, do those two Antonios ever look alike!


  1. I've seen sets like that, but have never bought one. Let me know how it works out for you. I like a decent Western.

  2. Beyond the Law was pretty good ... and made even better by comparison to the second one we've watched, Apache Blood (a/k/a Pursuit). At 85 minutes it was still too long and absolutely ranks up there as one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Had a decent twist at the end but just terrible (check the IMDB reviews!). Still, for $0.35 per movie, I shouldn't complain.
