Death Rides a Horse

Death Rides a Horse (aka Da uomo a uomo, or As Man to Man) is a 1967 spaghetti western directed by Giulio Petroni, written by Luciano Vincenzoni, and starring Lee Van Cleef and John Phillip Law. Bill Meceita, a boy whose family was murdered in front of him by a gang, sets out 15 years later to exact revenge. On his journey, he finds himself continually sparring and occasionally cooperating with Ryan, a gunfighter on his own quest for vengeance, who knows more than he says about Bill's tragedy. The film has lapsed into public domain.

In popular culture

  • There are several influences from and erences of Death Rides a Horse in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill:
    • Just like whenever the angered hero of Death Rides a Horse encounters one of the bandits who wronged him and killed his family, footage of the original wrong which is being avenged is superimposed over the hero's face; the same thing happens in Kill Bill whenever The Bride (Kill Bill) confronts one of the Deadly Vipers.
    • The main Theme music of Death Rides a Horse is used in Kill Bill. It is the trilling flute and mixed choral piece played when The Bride calls out O-Ren Ishii and her bodyguards at the House of Blue Leaves.
    • The scene where the main character, Bill, watches his family being murdered is, in part, reenacted in the animated scene of Kill Bill. Here the skull necklace is depicted as a skull ring, worn by the man who kills O-Ren's father.
    • Bill, taken captive by someone he is out to kill, is buried alive and left to die. The same thing happens in Kill Bill to The Bride.

  • "Death Rides a Horse" is a 1970 reggae single from the Hippy Boys. It appears on the B-side of Max Romeos single "melting pot" on the Pama Unity label
  • "Death Rides a Horse" is a name of a track on the Russian Circles album Enter (Russian Circles album)
