"Per pochi dollari ancora" or "For a Few Extra Dollars" or "Die Now, Pay Later", is a 1966 Italian Spaghetti Western war film directed by Giorgio Ferroni. Its stars Giuliano Gemma , Dan Vadis and Sophie Daumier. The film is set at Fort Yuma in Arizona and is also known as "Fort Yuma's Gold".

Plot

The film related the story of Southerner Major Sanders (Jacques Sernas), who continues fighting the North after the conclusion of the American Civil War. Former Rebel Gary Diamond (Giuliano Gemma), now a guide, leads a pair of Union soldiers to obstruct Sanders before he can pull off a raid on Fort Yuma. However the others are unaware that Diamond knows that one of the Union officers is actually Sanders' spy. More complications ensue, pairing Diamond with the aptly named saloon-girl Connie Breastful (Sophie Daumier). Later Diamond is found to be a traitor and is tortured severely before Sanders' plot is foiled.

The Leone connection

Despite the name similarity, the film is not a part of Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy. Evidently the film was inspired by this and several actors including José Calvo, Antonio Molino Rojo and Benito Stefanelli had appeared in Leone's films. Stefanelli in particular had starred in all three of Leones dollars films and had acted as a translator on set between the Italians and Clint Eastwood. Incidentally, Dan Vadis who plays a major role as Riggs in this film would go on to appear in Clint Eastwood's "High Plains Drifter" in 1973.

Gianni Ferrio collaborated with Leone's score composer Ennio Morricone to produce the score. The soundtrack combines many the sounds from "The Good the Bad and the Ugly". Following the barn scene in which several men are killed, the emphatic Latin trumpets and Spanish guitar play together in one track, seeming to combine two familiar soundtracks from the other film together as one.

On release in the United States, several of the cast members and production team had their names changed for the English audience.
