50th Anniversary of the premier of God Forgives… I Don’t

It was 50 years ago today that we saw the first pairing of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer. The duo was paired by accident when Peter Martell broke a toe the kicking a chair after they had arrived in Spain to begin filming. Peter was replaced by Terence Hill and the rest, as they say, is history. The duo would go on to make eighteen more westerns and adventure films with a heavy slant toward comedy. Before that they made a trio of action westerns: “God Forgives…I Don’t”, “Ace High” and “Boot Hill”. The working title for “God Forgives…I Don’t” was “The Dog, the Cat and the Fox”. The film became the most successful film in Italy in 1967.

The killing of a sheriff gives Cat a clue to track down the outlaws: in fact, following a group of bandits, he arrives at their lair, but is captured. Earp, who was also on the right track, is unable to leave Cat and recover the precious booty, because of a disagreement between the two. While fighting, they are again captured by the bandits, and enduring all manners of torture because they have hidden the stolen money.
