Any Gun Can Play: The Essential Guide to Euro-Westerns by Kevin GrantThe success of Sergio Leones Dollars trilogy in the 60s sparked a gold rush, as a legion of European film-makers - many of them sharing the get-rich-quick mentality of Leones mercenary anti-heroes - followed the masters lead to create some of the wildest Westerns ever made. Cynical and stylish, bloody and baroque, Euro-Westerns replaced straight-shooting sheriffs and courageous cowboys with amoral adventurers, whose murderous methods would shock the heroes of Hollywood Westerns. These films became box-office sensations around the world, and their influence can still be felt today. Any Gun Can Play puts the phenomenon into perspective, exploring the films wider reaches, their recurrent themes, characters, quirks and motifs. It examines Euro-Westerns in relation to their American ancestors and the mechanics of the Italian popular film industry, and spotlights the unsung actors, directors and other artists who subverted the code of the Western and dragged it into the modern age. Based on years of research backed up by interviews with many of the genres leading lights, including actors Franco Nero, Giuliano Gemma and Gianni Garko, writer Sergio Donati, and directors Sergio Sollima and Giuliano Carnimeo, Any Gun Can Play will satisfy both connoisseurs and the curious. Complete with a foreword by Euro-Western legend Franco Nero, this stunningly illustrated reference guide takes aim at the lingering notion that the genre has little to offer beyond the Dollars films and a fistful of others, exposing the full, vibrant history of the Euro-Western. In much the same way that FAB Presss best-seller Book of the Dead has become the definitive text on the zombie movie, Any Gun Can Play is positioned to become the go-to source for everything any fan of Euro-Westerns could ever want to know.

The film is directed by Enzo G. It follows a familiar pattern of protagonists searching for gold, double-crossing one another and a high body count. The three main characters continually change allegiances and get the upper hand only to be thwarted by fellow outlaws, mysterious insurance investigators and each other. In the opening scene one of the three outlaws is dressed very similar to Clint Eastwood's character in the "Dollars" trilogy, one is dressed as Lee Van Cleef's characters in those and other westerns, and one as Franco Nero's character Django.
