June 27, 1971 in UK cinemas: A Town Called Bastard

“Evil reigned in A Town Called Bastard”

A_Town_Called_Bastard-1971A Town Called Bastard is a 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.
