In fact I read "Sam Pekinpek"... I really don't like this film, Terence Hill is unbearable, poor Henry Fonda...

I think it's actually "Sam Peckimpek" with an "m". The homage is apparent and is bolstered by the fact that the huge posse in the film is referred to as "The Wild Bunch".

Personally I find the film frustrating. It had the potential to be incredible and without the slapstick influence of the "Trinity" films, it just might have been. Then again without the existence of the "Trinity" films, there might not have been any impetus to make it anyway.

What is really curious is that some of the scenes are incredibly well filmed and yet the content is severely lacking - in particular the urinal scene and the fairground scene where Nobody is wandering around.

But Hill says Peckinpah in the movie, doesn't he?

yes he does say Peckinpah - and there is no mistake to whom he is referencing here - as for the movie - first time i saw it i did not like it at all - but few months ago i saw it again and in much better light i must say - though it is not actually a Sergio Leone movie - some scenes are unmistakeable his - and not of director Tonino Valeri....
on the other hand Ennio Morricone's soundtrack is superb as always

I think it is a Leone film. 90 % Leone at least.

And it is mostly excellently directed, a pleasure to watch.
