The Man Called Gringo (Sie Nannten ihn Gringo) is a German western, with the Alps standing in for the Rockies. Crooked lawyer Helmut Schmidt makes it his mission in life to destroy an old rancher. Schmidt hires Gringo (Dan Martin), a rootless soldier of fortune, to either drive the rancher off his property or kill him. But Gringo turns out to be the rancher's long-long illegitimate son. The whole mess is solved by the deux-ex-machina appearance of a shadowy stranger. Alexandra Stewart, George Gotz and Peter Tordy costar in this psychological oater.
