Horror filmmakers Armando Crispino (who directed) and Romano Scavolini co-wrote this spaghetti western version of the Casanova legend. John Richardson stars as John Tenerico, whose string of romantic conquests is interrupted by the arrival of his long-lost brother Francisco (Claudio Camaso) and his lovely wife Antonia (Martine Beswicke). John and Antonia have a secret tryst, and she tells him that his wealthy father is still alive in Mexico, having invited her and Francisco to live in his palatial villa. When he finds out that he wasn't invited because Francisco told their father he was dead, John travels to Mexico, protecting a pair of beautiful Mormon women from the Ku Klux Klan along the way. After defeating the Klan, John is pursued by a hitman (Gordon Mitchell) who was hired by the jealous Mormons, but he manages to reconcile with his father, kill Francisco, and have another tumble with Antonia before the hitman shows up to crush him beneath a large statue. Claudio Gora and Glauco Onorato co-star in this mean-spirited but entertaining film with music by Nico Fidenco.
