Synopsis

This Italian/French/Spanish sagebrusher stars Giuliano Gemma as the Arizona Colt, a notorious bounty hunter. Imprisoned in a desert town, the Colt is sprung by gang leader Gordon Watch (Fernando Sancho). Instead of galloping off into the sunset, Our Hero elects to stay in town to defend its citizens from the film's real bad guys: Watch's gang.

Comment

Had Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone had anything to do with it, Arizona Colt would probably be hailed as a classic; as it stands, it's just another spaghetti western. The film was also released as "The Man From Nowhere".
