Rivets On The Poster


Following the international hits GRAND SLAM and MACHINE GUN McCAIN, director Giuliano Montaldo set his sights on a different kind of project, a feature for RAI-TV that remains one of the most unique and criminally underseen thrillers of the ‘70s: At the local cinema, an audience watches a Spaghetti Western matinee. During the film’s on-screen climactic duel, a bullet is fired into a patron. With no leads and a theater full of suspects, police investigators lock the doors, put everyone back in their seats and run the movie again. But will this shot in the dark reveal the real killer? Flavio Bucci (SUSPIRIA), Tony Kendall (THE LORELEY’S GRASP) and Giuliano Gemma (TENEBRE) co-star in this “original, intelligent and spooky” (Ninja Dixon) shocker written by Oscar® nominee Nicola Badalucco (THE DAMNED), now scanned in 2K from RAI-TV vault film elements with Special Features that include one of the final interviews with Guiliano Montaldo.
