Cry Onion

Attempting to spice up this lamentable slapstick Western, those responsible for the dubbing have foisted an inappropriate James Stewart drawl on freckle-faced Franco Nero (a gormless, onion-eating fanatic who refuses to sell a patch of land to Balsam, an oil baron with a dart-firing mechanical hand), while his juvenile sidesick spouts Al Pacino Brooklynese. Nero spends most of the movie throwing onions at the baddies, or rendering them unconscious with his malodorous breath.

I remember seeing this movie as a teen in the 70s in Puerto Rico. I would like to see it again to see if I laugh as much now as I did then. I have not met anyone else that even knew what I was talking about. Glad to see it wasn't a dream as one of my friends said.
