Tip#1263: The Recipe For Resilience, Part 69 – They Call Me Trinity – Trinity is Still My Name

This is Day 615 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

What a joy it was to find an unexpected delivery of freshly baked bread in a brown bag at my door early on a cold Saturday morning! An old friend has been baking these traditional three ingredient loaves for many months and his surprise gift of much needed comfort food helped me cope with an extra intense time of seasonal depression this year (SAD, winter depression). Random acts of kindness really do go a long way for feeling great!

I also have new cinematic comfort food when I recently discovered the joy of the spaghetti western film genre through a fun clip I found on YouTube of a man devouring a big frying pan full of yummy looking beans. It made me so hungry that I slow roasted a pork shoulder, cut it in juicy chunks and then added a can of beans in tomato sauce for a delicious, hearty lunch! 

The clip was from the 70’s film, They Call Me Trinity, and soon after I found two other foodie clips from its sequel, Trinity is Still My Name, showing Trinity’s family enjoying a big roasted bird and another clip of Trinity and his brother enjoying some French fine dining. These spaghetti westerns are now added to my feel good films list and maybe even foodie film lists! 

They Call Me Trinity (1970) 

The Italian Spaghetti Western comedy film, They Call Me Trinity, is about a lazy, unorthodox gunfighter Trinity (Terence Hill) and his horse-thieving brother Bambino (Bud Spencer) impersonating the law to defend a Mormon settlement from a land-grabbing mayor, a Mexican bandit, and all their henchmen. This entertaining film is filled with great, and sometimes silly, performances by the whole cast.

This film was brimming with a pure sense of fun and very likeable characters! There were many memorable scenes like the opening beans binging scene as well as Trinity’s saloon challenge of drinking whiskey and then shooting the glasses he throws in the air before it hits the ground. The card game Trinity and Bambino plays was goofy fun as well as the hilarious slap stick like scenes of Trinity showing how fast he is with a gun by slapping his challenger in the face multiple times! These two brothers are oozing with playful charm. 

Trinity is Still My Name (1971) 

The Italian Spaghetti Western comedy film, Trinity is Still My Name, is about a would-be horse rustler Bambino (Bud Spencer) teaching his brother Trinity (Terence Hill) to become an outlaw and ending up doing good deeds for people. This highly entertaining sequel has more of the same as the first film, They Call Me Trinity with great performances by all.

I really loved the fun of the random acts of kindness Trinity and Bambino provides to strangers along their journey. There are also the two dining scenes of the roasted bird and French fine dining I mentioned that any foodie would love to see! There is also another hilarious fast-draw scene of Trinity slapping his challenger multiple times. 

And though these spaghetti westerns can be cheesy and silly at times they are also full of heart and a huge sense of innocent fun! Trinity is also full of confidence will lightening quick draw skills and is always fearless in confrontations that I found to be very inspiring! 

Whether it’s comfort food or cinematic comfort food, these can be your personal go-to-solutions to helping lift your mood quickly when you feel the blues or depressed about life. Enjoy some delicious foods today while you watch a favourite film with favourite characters that'll make you feel great all day  long!
