ABOUT THE ART
A Bullet for the General (It. Quién sabe?), is a 1966 Italian film which stars Gian Maria Volonté, Klaus Kinski, Lou Castel and Martine Beswick. Originally entitled El Chuncho, quién sabe?, it is the story of El Chuncho, the bandit, and Bill Tate (or El Nino) who is a counter-revolutionary in Mexico. Chuncho soon learns that social revolution is more important than mere money. This is one of the more famous Zapata Westerns, a subgenre of the spaghetti western which deals with the radicalizing of bad men and bandits into revolutionaries when they are confronted with injustice. Others in this subgenre include Companeros, The Mercenary and perhaps most famously A Fistful of Dynamite (also known as Duck, You Sucker). When the film was dubbed into English for the American release, all traces of political content (such as any references to "rebels" or the "revolution") were removed from the dialogue.
