Cult filmmaker Massimo Dallamano directed this impressive spaghetti western -- his only foray into the genre -- under the pseudonym "Max Dillman." Enrico Maria Salerno stars as gunslinger Richard Martin, whose hands are destroyed in a battle with outlaw Billy Kane (Marco Guglielmi). Years later, Martin runs a Wild West show, and harbors a fugitive named Ricky Shot (Terry Jenkins), teaching him the art of gunfighting. The vengeful Martin and his protégé eventually track down the ruthless Kane, leading to a surprising conclusion. Luigi Pistilli, Cris Huerta, Antonio Pica, and Venantino Venantini co-star in this stirring revenge film, which also features a dynamic musical score by Egisto Macchi. Filmmaker Romano Migliorini collaborated on the script.
