The Man Called Noon (1973)

Man Called Noon, The (1973, GBR/ITA/SPA) C-95m. SCOPE ** D: Peter Collinson. Starring Richard Crenna, Stephen Boyd, Rosanna Schiaffino, Farley Granger, Patty Shepard, Angel del Pozo, Howard Ross, Aldo Sambrell. Unusual European western about clever gunslinger Crenna, who, suffering from amnesia, tries to reconstruct his identity. Is he a killer? Elaborate camera angles, nice score by Luis Bacalov, but overall too self-conscious. Crenna is quite good, but one would still wish for a tougher hero like Clint Eastwood, for instance. Not bad, though, based on the novel by Louis L'Amour. Italian title: LO CHIAMAVANO MEZZOGIORNO. Spanish title: UN HOMBRE LLAMADO NOON.
