Trivia
The original title of the film was "Duel in the Wind." Lee Van Cleef came up with the Italian title while discussing the movie with John Phillip Law who sighted the film was a "man to man" story. Van Cleef remarked, "Why don't they call it 'From Man to Man'?" The Italian producers liked how it sounded in Italian ("Da Uomo a Uomo") so much they used it. And then the film was subsequently retitled "Death Rides a Horse" in English speaking markets, which Law said he never liked.
