I Lunghi Giorni dell'Odio
In this spaghetti western, two adventurous G-men masquerade as arms smugglers and sneak into a gang. When one of them returns home, he finds his parents have been murdered and his sister brutally raped. Now he rides out for revenge and bloody mayhem ensues. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Desperate Mission
Ricardo Montalban is well cast as legendary Mexican bandit Joaquin Murietta in Desperate Mission. As in most previous filmed adaptations of the life of this controversial character, Murietta is depicted as a South of the Border Robin Hood, more sinned against than sinning. The storyline is open-ended enough to suggest that this made-for-TV movie was intended as the pilot for a weekly series. If this was indeed the case, the producers needn't have bothered. Lensed in 1969, Desperate Mission didn't get a TV playdate until December 3, 1971 (though it was released theatrically outside the US in 1970). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
