The Stranger films by Allen Klein and Tony Anthony

The second Stranger film, The Stranger Returns/Un Uomo, un cavallo, una Pistola was a more polished entry than the first one and had a golden stagecoach as its MacGuffin. Tony Anthony's willingness to experiment with the genre resulted in the third series entry, the self-explanatory A Stranger in Japan/ Lo Straniero di Silenzio/The Silent Stranger. Considered by many the first "East-meets-West western", predating Red Sun by three years, its release was delayed for seven years in the US due to a dispute with MGM, and never received a European release at all. Anthony later declared the film his best and lamented the cuts that MGM made to it. Both had scores by Stelvio Cipriani.
