Wild East is proud to present for the first time on DVD the uncut THE DIRTY OUTLAWS in its original widescreen format. Previously released on videotape in the US in an incomprehensible, drastically edited version with the unlikely title of THE BIG RIP-OFF, the film tells the story of an outlaw who masquerades as a blind man's son in order to trick the old man out of a cache of gold located in a vacated town. A gang of bandits appears in the same town to rob a payroll coach that has to pass through and they take the blind man's gold as well, setting the desperado against the gang.
THE DIRTY OUTLAWS is the only directorial effort of screenwriter Franco Rosetti, author of DJANGO, RINGO AND HIS GOLDEN PISTOL and TEXAS ADIOS. Both his writing and direction reflect the rapid pace that characterizes all his screenplays. Cameraman Angelo Fillippini provides the sun-scorched vistas that permeate Spaghetti Westerns, but he also adds a few gothic touches to the night scenes as well.
