NOTES
A former Union officer (Holden) enlists a motley crew of killers to take his revenge on an outlaw who massacred his family. William Holden and Ernest Borgnine are reunited - and Woody Strode and Susan Hayward join them - to recreate the magic of The Wild Bunch: though inferior to its reference model, THE REVENGERS (1972) can be remembered for its wild violence and for the masterly touch of director Daniel Mann, as well as for the terrific symphonic score provided by outsider Italian orchestra leader Pino Calvi, whose activity for the screen oddly enough was very limited. Since the original master tapes have been culpably and definitely lost, the CD has been obtained from a good vinyl copy of the LP issued by CBS in the '70s: the sound quality is quite good and makes justice to this minor classic of western music.

MAIN ACTORS William Holden & Ernest Borgnine
