A Long Ride from Hell, in the original Italian known as Vivo per la tua morte (literally "I Live for Your Death!"). The film was bodybuilder Steve Reeves' final film prior to his retirement. Reeves, who turned down the lead of A Fistful of Dollars financed and co-wrote the film himself upon seeing the successful box office returns of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns at the time. The film did poorly and Reeves retired from filmmaking that year. Steve portrays cowboy Mike Sturges, who, along with his younger brother, Roy, are sentenced to Yuma Territorial Prison on a trumped-up train robbery charge. Both endure cruel treatment before Mike escapes to exact revenge on their enemies.
