​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

ExFest #2 and #73 is the 1967 spaghetti western Death Rides a Horse. Bill (John Phillip Law) lost his entire family to a gang of thugs and has spent his life seeking revenge. Meantime, a stranger (Lee Van Cleef) is released from prison after 15 years and goes to seek revenge for his own reasons against the same thugs. They cross paths and find they have even more in common. Not a bad western at all - Van Cleef is solid if a tad stiff as the stranger while Law (or his dubber) is even stiffer. But it's still decent.
