Find a Place to Die (1968) watch uncut


Directed by:  Giuliano Carnimeo
Stars:  Jeffrey Hunter, Pascale Petit and Giovanni Pallavicino
Language: English
Country: Italy

Also known as:  Joe… cercati un posto per morire!

Description:  An outcast Confederate soldier redeems himself by defending a woman against bandits willing to kill for her goldmine claim.

When a man is partially buried in an avalanche, his younger wife rides to the nearest town, bringing back a handful of dubious characters to the couple’s gold mine, which happens to be in the middle of land controlled by a very dangerous bandit known as Chato.

No doubt inspired in part by Henry Hathaway’s classic Garden Of Evil, Find A Place To Die stands apart from other Italian westerns in that it’s dark and very atmospheric, without any of the flamboyant flourishes typical of the genre.

Set south of the border, this looks great with lots of rugged mountainous terrain, thick wooded areas, and crumbling Spanish architecture. They all add a lot to the movie’s afore mentioned atmosphere.

Sadly, Jeffrey Hunter (who died the following year) is remembered by most people these days only as the predecessor to Captain Kirk in the original pilot episode of “Star Trek”. Western fans though, know him as one of the great unsung anti-heroes in such films as The Proud Ones and The Searchers.
