Maurizio Lucidi directed this enjoyable revenge-themed spaghetti western using the pseudonym "Maurice A. Bright." Cult favorite Robert Woods stars as Pecos, a Mexican whose parents were murdered by Joe Kline (Piero Lulli appearing as "Peter Carsten"), a wicked town boss. Pecos murders several people in his quest for Kline's head, and their bodies are quickly collected by a comic-relief gravedigger reminiscent of the one in Sergio Leone's Per un Pugno di Dollari (1964). Genre devotees will enjoy the gritty, violent tone, as well as supporting turns by Lucia Modugno, Massimo Righi (a.k.a. Max Dean), and Luigi Montefiori (a.k.a. George Eastman). Woods returned the following year in Lucidi's frivolous sequel, Pecos e Qui: Prega e Muori.
