Sette dollari sul rosso (released in the United States as Seven Dollars on the Red or Seven Dollars to Kill) is a 1966 Italian Spaghetti Western film directed by Alberto Cardone. Its stars Anthony Steffen as the main character.

Despite the name similarity, the film is not a part of Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy. Evidently the film was inspired by this. On release in the United States, several of the cast members and production team had their names changed for the English audience.

Some parts of the soundtrack, composed by Francesco De Masi, are featured in the videogame Red Dead Revolver.
