Was this reprinted? Or am I mistaken in thinking that this is a very rare book?

According to the Any Gun Can Play book this one's very good visually and, together with Keoma, one of Castellari's best Westerns. Sometimes reminding of Mario Bava. Story idea by Sergio Corbucci. It's OOP but I found a few places that still carry it.
You're right about there being many a clunker in the genre. You need a guide of some sort to see you through to the really good ones. Fortunately Johnny Hamlet is one such picture. I actually think it's better than Keoma. It lacks all of the Peckinpah slow motion Castellari become known for, and it does indeed have very good visuals. There's a bravura camera move early on when Johnny visits his father's grave. I think Castellari explains how it's done on the DVD in an interview.

Thanks for the tip off, I picked it up soon after you let me know.

It's still holding at a relatively low price of $18.64 for anybody else interested!

Still coming:

Death Occurred
Stunt Squad

Next up:

Johnny Hamlet
Nine Guests ...

And perhaps I'll order that Eurocrime doc by Mike Malloy.
Still in doubt though. I'm pretty sure it's a fun doc but I'm afraid I'll probably only watch it once ....
