Clint Eastwood’s Man with No Name spawned imitations, variations and shameless rip-offs keen to emulate his success at the box office. Within months of A Fistful of Dollars’ release, Giuliano Gemma was playing Ringo, who was then followed by Franco Nero’s Django, Tony Anthony’s The Stranger and Gianni Garko’s Sartana – each providing their own twist on the Eastwood antihero, and each of them then subject to their own spate of unofficial sequels, spoofs and cash-ins.

Sartana tapped into more than just his Spaghetti Western predecessors – a mysterious figure, he has a spectral quality, aided by his Count Dracula-like cloak which also nods towards comic strip figure Mandrake the Magician, with whom he shares a penchant for card tricks. He takes pride in his appearance unlike the Eastwood’s dusty wanderer or Nero’s mud-caked drifter. And there’s a dose of James Bond too in his fondness for gadgetry and the droll sense of humour.

Unsurprisingly, this unique figure in the genre was treated to four official follow-ups. The Complete Sartana collects all five films, presented here in brand-new restorations: If You Meet Sartana... Pray for Your Death, I Am Sartana, Your Angel of Death, Have a Good Funeral My Friend... Sartana Will Pay, Light the Fuse... Sartana Is Coming, and Sartana’s Here... Trade Your Pistol for a Coffin, in which George Hilton replaced Garko in the lead role.

The Complete Sartana Boxset - How is this not your shelf?

Words cannot do justice to just how awesome this set is. If you are here, you are into Spaghetti westerns, and these movies are some of the best the genre had to offer. Not a lesser "man With no Name" knock off or a Django wannabe, Sartana stands proudly as one of the coolest returning character in Spaghetti western history. No matter if he's played by Gianni Garko, Helmut Berger or George Hilton ( My favorite was always the latter). All movies have great action set pieces with inventive camera work like only the italian masters can provide. Arrow has done splendidly in honoring Sartana with a sweet Boxset containing 5 of the character's films. All are fantastic in their own rights. Commentary tracks, Interviews and other excellent supplements are all here. There's also a reversible sleeve with some new artwork, but I still think the original posters is superior. Either way everybody wins.
