Cult filmmaker Ernst von Theumer co-wrote this enjoyable spaghetti western with its director, Alfio Caltabiano. Caltabiano also stars (under the pseudonym "Al Northon") as the ruthless Mexican bandit El Bedoja, who is being pursued separately by two men for differing reasons. Bounty hunter Blackie (Anthony Ghidra) is chasing the outlaw for the large price on his head, while the vengeful Hud (Angelo Infanti) has been in jail for 15 years since El Bedoja killed his father and framed Hud for the crime. This was the first of five western roles for the dashing Ghidra, and it co-stars Anthony Freeman and Monica Teuber. Guglielmo Mancori provided the impressive cinematography, and composer Marcello Giombini's score is among his best.
