Dollar for the Dead is a 1998 American film directed by Gene Quintano and starring by Emilio Estevez in his third role in a Western Film.

Dollar for the Dead is considered more than anything as an homage or tribute to the iconic Spaghetti Westerns of the mid-60s and 70s, which by then had ceased to have relevance and success among the public.

Machine Guns

M1865 Gatling Gun

The coffin that the Man with No Name (Emilio Estevez) carried throughout the film with the help of his horse, inside it kept a Gatling Gun that is used by Dooley (William Forsythe) to help the Man with No Name. Does it sound familiar?
