Crisantemi per un branco di carogne (also known as Chrysanthemums for a Bunch of Swine in English) is an Italian western film that was released in 1967 and is directed by Sergio Pastore. There is no existing copy or any other form of release of this film since its initial theatrical release.


According to the Spaghetti Western Database page for the film, the synopsis is summarized as:

"A bandit kidnaps the belle of a village and hides with her and his gang in a monastery. The priest refuses to marry them, and then chases the gang after they have left."[1]


What exists of the film is the film's posters, lobby cards and soundtrack.


The film's soundtrack was released on CD in 2012. The soundtrack is composed by Piero Umiliani. Much of the music consists of vocals that sing about what is happening in the film's story.

A user in the Spaghetti Western Database forum topic of the film gives a description of the plot explanation from the lyrics:

"We learn that the stinkers are seven and led by a Mexican. The protagonist, a doctor and a monk join the bunch of swine gradually. In one scene the sheriff ends up buried up to his neck as Garko in $10,000 Blood Money or John Phillip Law in Death Rides a Horse, and there is a very unusual and bizarre narrative element that seems to be of some importance, the disappearance of the gang leader’s hand-held fan!"[2]
