Cjamango gets robbed of the gold that he just won in a poker game. He wants it back and have to manipulate and fight the two gangs of Mexicans and Americans.

This one owns a lot to 'Fistful of Dollars', 'For A Few Dollars More' and 'Django'. Got a lot of clichιs known in these movies and featuring a generic 'Django'/ 'Man With No Name' anti hero copy, with a leather cloak and his sights on gold. Pretty standard Spaghetti Western with simple story and dialogue. Rassimov is ok as Cjamango. Mickey Hargitay's character Clinton seems to be there just to get a Mortimer type character, he has very little to add to the story. The English dub is horrible at places. Music by Felice Di Stefano continues the mediocre, standard feeling, nothing special but does it's job.

Doesn't shine in any part but still got the elements I enjoy in a Spaghetti Western.
