This results in Stevens and Bessy becoming unwilling allies in Cacopoulus’ revenge against the people who framed him.

wonderful movie

Ace High I was completely amazed by this fantastic movie. I am not sure why – it isn’t any much funny, the plot is unnecessarily complicated, there are few unnecessarily long scenes … but still, the characters, the atmosphere, and the great musical score almost made me cry in the last scene where our three heroes are leaving together. All the actors do great work – from Spencer/Hill duo and Wallach himself to the black boxer champion, who gets beaten by Bud Spencer for $50. Another funny scene is where Wallach talks about his Greek ancestors, and thus makes his guards sleep. Or, when he breaks the bank in the casino. The movie is definitely worth seeing, and it does not disappoint even when watched more times. Nice!

Eli is the ACE…

Ace High Character actor Eli Wallach is the real treat here as he carries his Tuco role from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” over to “Ace High.” This is a pre-Trinity pairing of Spencer, Hill and most of the fun and hilarity is carried on the able shoulders of Eli Wallach, who is more than up for the assignment. Wallach steals every scene he’s in and this only means total enjoyment for the viewer. A must see for all western fans!

Hill/Spencer teamed up with Wallach can’t go wrong

Yes if you know your Hill/Spencer you ought to know that they did three darker, and more serious westerns in the late 60’s before they find their stride in “They call him Trinity”. All three were directed by Guiseppe Colizzi who later directed them in their first non-western “All the way boys” in 1972. Someone asked if this was filmed in English, and yes they were all made for an international market. But Bud was almost every time dubbed afterwords since he has a very special accent. I am pretty sure Terence was dubbed in this one as well. I enjoyed this movie. Eli Wallach is very good as the Greek. And it feels almost like he came directly from the shoot of “The good the bad the ugly” to the set of this movie. Bud Spencer is also surprisingly good here, but Terence is just a bit too stiff and almost somewhat boring. A script involving escape, robbery and revenge is not that original in these type of films but it works. Mainly because of Wallach and Spencer and a solid directing by Colizzi. All in all Spencer/Hills best movie together before their heyday.
