Classic Westerns In 4K Coming to ARROW

Blood Money Collection watch on ARROW from 24th July
A key highlight this July on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW includes four classic Westerns in the Blood Money Collection. Featuring a wealth of key Euro-cult talent both behind and in front of the camera, Arrow Films is proud to present these four classic westerns in sparkling High Definition restorations, alongside a plethora of brand-new bonus materials.

In the mid-1960s, the runaway success of Sergio Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy gave rise to an explosion of similar productions. Filmmakers by the dozen sought to capitalise on this new, uniquely Italian take on the western, which was characterised by their deeply cynical outlook, morally compromised antiheroes and unflinching depictions of savage violence. This specially curated selection gathers together four outstanding examples of the genre from the height of its popularity, all centred around the theme of blood money: Find a Place to Die, $10,000 Blood Money, Matalo! Kill Him and Vengeance Is Mine.

$10,000 BLOOD MONEY
$10k blood Money ARROW
In Romolo Guerrieri‘s $10,000 Blood Money (1967; a.k.a. $10,000 for a Massacre), Gianni Garko – best known for his portrayal of supernatural gunslinger Sartana – takes on the part of another beloved western antihero, Django, who is on the trail of bandit Manuel Vasquez (Claudio Camaso, A Bay of Blood). But what started as a job for hire soon turns personal, with Django swearing vengeance against the unscrupulous outlaw.

FIND A PLACE TO DIE
Find A Place To Die ART on ARROW
In Giuliano Carnimeo’s Find a Place to Die (1968), Jeffrey Hunter (The Searchers) plays Joe Collins, a disgraced former soldier who assembles a ragtag band of scoundrels. They are lured into helping a woman (Pascale Petit, A Queen for Caesar) to rescue her prospector husband, who is trapped at their gold mine cave-in – though in reality, they have designs on the gold strike themselves.

MATALO! KILL HIM

In Cesare Canevari’s psychedelic Matalo! (Kill Him) (1970), double- and triple-crosses abound as a band of outlaws, having holed up in an isolated ghost town, set about terrorising travellers Ray (Lou Castel, Orgasmo) and Bridget (Ana María Mendoza, 7 Women for the MacGregors) – only to get more than they bargained for when Ray fights back, armed only with his weapon of choice: a bag full of boomerangs.

VENGEANCE IS MINE
Vengeance Is Mine ART ARROW
In Giovanni Fago’s Vengeance is Mine (1967; a.k.a. $100,000 for a Killing), Garko and Camaso once again lead the cast, this time as estranged half-brothers – one a Confederate soldier now riding with renegade outlaws, the other a bounty hunter tasked with bringing him in alive.

Blood Money Collection debuts on ARROW from 24th July.
