Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Prolific filmmaker Demofilo Fidani directed this dreadful spaghetti western under the pseudonym "Miles Deem." Lionel Stander (using the name Red Carter) plays Jonas Dickerson, a two-bit conman who discovers gold in Dead Man's Gulch along with his partner Mark (Bud Randall). Gordon Mitchell turns in an amusing performance as the sleazy Muller, who tries to turn the town into a den of vice before being brought down by Jonas and Mark. Typical Fidani touches, such as a sheriff with hemorrhoids, do not make the film any less dull, but a familiar cast including Simone Blondell, Dennis Colt, Carla Mancini, and Sleepy Warren do make it a bit less painful. Rick Boyd (aka Federico Boido) also appears.
