1966 • Italy • Directed by Maurizio Lucidi
Robert Woods (Johnny Colt, Seven Guns for the MacGregors) stars as the eponymous Mexican gunslinger in My Names is Pecos, an action-packed, revenge-fueled western directed by Maurizio Lucidi (Motel of Fear). Pecos Martinez returns to his hometown, determined to settle a long-standing score with Joe Clane (Pier Paolo Capponi, The Cat O’ Nine Tails), the gangster who wiped out his entire family and now holds the entire town in a vicelike grip. But Clane has other concerns – namely the sum of money stolen from him by one of his own men after a recent bank heist. They say it’s never wise to antagonize a desperate man, and Pecos’ return soon sets him and Clane on a collision course from which only one man can possibly emerge victorious… With a suave, laconic screen presence to rival Franco Nero’s Django and Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name, Woods’ Pecos was an instant hit with audiences, and the film’s success spawned a sequel, Pecos Cleans Up, again directed by Lucidi and with Woods in the lead role. Co-starring Lucia Modugno (The Girl Who Knew Too Much) and George Eastman (Rabid Dogs), My Name is Pecos is a thrilling, timeless example of the western genre, shot through with striking visuals and nihilistic violence.
