Cult filmmaker Massimo Dallamano (What Have You Done to Solange?) directed this impressive spaghetti western -- his only foray into the genre -- under the pseudonym "Max Dillman." Enrico Maria Salerno stars as gunslinger Richard Martin, whose hands are destroyed in a battle with outlaw Billy Kane (Venantini). Years later, Martin runs a Wild West show, and harbors a fugitive named Ricky Shot (Jenkins), teaching him the art of gunfighting. The vengeful Martin and his protege eventually track down the ruthless Kane, leading to a surprising conclusion. This stirring revenge film also features a dynamic musical score by Egisto Macchi. Filmmaker Romano Migliorini collaborated on the script with Giambattista Mussetto and Juan Cobos.
