Death Rides A Horse big hit on YouTube
Sun Oct 22, 2017 2:58am

Death Rides A Horse is a big international hit on You Tube.

Someone recently downloaded a beautiful HD version but an earlier dub that is not the best picture quality has been viewed just shy of 1 million 700 thousand times. Lee would be pleased.

      I own this film & think Lee does an excellent job playing the father figure. Law is too stiff; don't like his performance at all. My favorite scene is when Ryan finds Cavanaugh. Lee drinking at the... more

        It is my favorite movie and I have watched it over and over again - needless to say I also have got the DVD. I am glad they don't grow ruts though, like LPs did, way back when... But Cuffs, honestly, ... more

              I often wondered if the numbers were high among professional actors because of an identity crisis. I believe that many in the profession take solace in continually pretending to be somebody else, as... more

                ...all the evidence I've gathered thus far suggest Lee approached acting as a Job -- altho once he gained some success at it, he made serious efforts to improve himself and learn the craft. That's... more

          To me the voice actor who dubbed Lugi in Death Rides A Horse also dubbed the sheriff. And one of the characters at the beginning of the film. It was dubbed from what I understand in Rome. The Leone... more
