This overwrought spaghetti western is yet another pseudo-entry in the Ringo series without a single character named Ringo. William Berger stars as Jack Balman, wrongfully accused in a series of Tombstone, Arizona, stagecoach robberies. The real villain, as genre fans will probably suspect upon perusing the cast list, is veteran bad-guy Eduardo Fajardo, here playing Tombstone's corrupt mayor. Fajardo is plotting with the local sheriff, a saloon-owner, and a fat-cat businessman to divide up the money and blame Berger, but his intended victim convincingly turns the tables. Adriana Ambesi, Tom Felleghy, Armando Calvo, and Jorge Rigaud are among the familiar faces involved, and the musical score is by Carlo Rustichelli.
