Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released in the U.S. in 1970, the Italian spaghetti western Ballad of a Bounty Hunter was evidently filmed several years earlier. The title role is filled by James Philbrook, while Maria Silva plays Philbrook's lover. Silva is cursed with a headstrong younger brother, who turns to a life of crime. Torn between love and duty, Philbrook is forced to hunt the brother down. In terms of plot and characterization, Ballad of a Bounty Hunter is a notch or two above the norm.
