The Price of Power
aka Il Prezzo Del Potere; Italy
Directed by Tonino Valerii
Cast: Van Johnson, Giuliano Gemma, Warren Vanders, María Cuadra, Ray Saunders, Fernando Rey, Antonio Casas, Benito Stefanelli and María Luisa Sala
This unusual Spaghetti Western imaginatively transplants the events of the JFK shooting to the Old West . Van Johnson plays President James Garfield (also an assassination victim, but not in the fashion depicted here), who travels to Dallas, Texas, after the end of the Civil War. His death is followed by the murder of the assassin, gunned down while being taken from one jail to another.
