Less a spaghetti western than an interracial romance, this entertaining film from veteran director Marino Girolami (using the pseudonym "Fred Wilson") concerns a white girl (Patricia Viterbo) in love with a Cherokee Indian (Dan Harrison). The tribe does not approve, and neither does Viterbo's father (Rod Cameron), whose wife committed suicide after a fling with another Cherokee. Cameron is also setting fires and blaming the Indians in an effort to wrest away their land for the coming railroad. Alfredo Mayo and Julio Pena co-star with Girolami's son Enzo, who later directed Keoma under the name Enzo G. Castellari. Carlo Savina provided the traditional score.
