A town called hell
A Town Called Bastard (also known as A Town Called Hell on DVD and blu-ray) is a 1971 British/Spanish international co-production spaghetti Western. The story concerns a vengeful widow (Stella Stevens) who returns to a small town presided over by a priest (Robert Shaw) and a sadistic Mexican outlaw (Telly Savalas). Violence erupts when a brutal army Colonel (Martin Landau) arrives in search of an elusive rebel leader. The film was retitled A Town Called Hell for US release as the word "bastard" was thought offensive.-
