Wild West Summer 2020: Watch a Western with a particularly beautiful poster

Honestly, the plot and story of this movie is....unexceptional, leaning towards bland at times. But Lee Van Cleef has charisma to spare, maybe not the traditional leading man charisma, but still in a world where if he's in the room, he's the one you notice. He's also got a few interesting friends/accomplices and a banjo wielding frenemy to spice things up. All this and a ton of shootouts, a man who can leap over tall buildings in a single bound, and a bad guy has this weird shoot out room set up in his house. It almost felt like Saw goes west. Rudimentary Saw, but points for reminding me of it.
