Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The romantic western Duelo en el Desierto stars south-of-the-border screen goddess Fanny Cano as Laura, a woman who falls for and marries a reformed gunslinger called Billy. In so doing, she alienates all of her kith and kin, particularly her bellicose brother, David. Distrusting Billy, and believing he should be sent away for good, David picks a fight with him and then frames him for injuries suffered during the scuffle. When Billy is unjustly incarcerated, Laura and a local priest scramble to prove his innocence while David hatches a scheme to put the bandit out of service for good. Mexican helmer Arturo Martinez directs.
