Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Paolo Moffa directed this gritty spaghetti western under the name "John Byrd," and if the sets look familiar, they were previously seen in Sergio Leone's classic Per Qualche Dollaro in Piu. Craig Hill stars as Clive Norton, a bounty-hunter hired to track down the outlaw Johnny Gunn (Giovanni Cianfriglia, best known as "Ken Wood"), who has looted an army payroll. Norton saves Gunn's brother (Ettore Manni) from execution in exchange for his help, and later enlists a Mexican bandit (Francesco Santoveti) who double-crosses them and joins Gunn. The inevitable shootout follows, with predictable results. The film's most memorable performance comes from Cianfraglia, a former stunt double for Steve Reeves who later gained a cult following as star of the Super Argo series.
