"THEY CALL ME TRINITY"
7:30 p.m. Vino's. Free.

Vino's continues its great spaghetti western screening series tonight with E.B. Clucher's "They Call Me Trinity," a 1970 comedy starring Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, who made 20-something films together and earned a reputation as Italy's own action-comedy Laurel and Hardy. Hill and Spencer, a.k.a. Mario Girotti and Carlo Pedersoli, a.k.a. the right and left hands of the devil, respectively, here play gun-slinging brothers who team up to take on bounty hunters, scorpions, beautiful Mormons and Farley Granger. It's a really well-made and enjoyable mess, complete with awkwardly dubbed dialogue, slapstick fight choreography, and weird insults like "chicken thief" and "horse rustler." This is an educational, culturally necessary screening, and I applaud Vino's for performing this public service. No word yet on whether they plan to show the 1971 sequel, "Trinity is Still My Name."
