Prolific filmmaker Demofilo Fidani directed this spaghetti western under the pseudonym "Sean O'Neal," and also co-starred as a Texas mayor under the name "Miles Deem." The real star is Geoffredo Scarciofolo (using the pseudonym "Jeff Cameron") as the famed gunfighter Sartana, who is offered a chance at amnesty from the $10,000 bounty on his head if he wipes out Benny Randal (Frank Fargas), his brother Baby Face (Dennis Colt), and an equally nasty sheriff (Dino Strano using the name "Dean Stratford"). Unabashedly heroic, the film mythologizes the fear and power of the Sartana character like few other entries in the long series but might bring unintended chuckles to general audiences. Simone Blondell and Elisabetta Fanti co-star, and the film was photographed by Franco Villa and future cult director Aristide Massaccesi (a.k.a. Joe D'Amato).
