When more of Gómez gang arrives and the ranchpeople finds out that Gómez is actually the bad guy they change sides to Chilson...
Tomas Milians first Spaghetti Western. I didn't like Richard Wilson too much. His face does not fit into a Spaghetti Western and makes the movie seem more like an American Western. Lots of familiar Spaghetti faces in small roles, Mario Brega, Frank Braña, José Canalejas just to name a few.
Somewhat interesting story but no big suprises here. A bit slow at some parts but keeps the interest up pretty well through the movie.
Fairly safe bet for Spaghetti Western fans, would have been great with one of the Spaghetti Western big stars in the lead.
