Gavilan was also released as The Ballad of Gavilan. This was in deference to the off-camera musical contributions of balladeer Pete Seeger, whose melodic commentary upon the action is the best part of the film. Christopher George stars as a young westerner whose family is wiped out by villains. George spends nearly two decades seeking out revenge. It's a plot device as old as the movies itself, but a device that never seems to lose its dramatic value.
