A stranger rides into Rainbow Valley where he's mistaken for a former resident who was believed killed in the Civil War and soon finds himself in opposition to local boss Tom Cherry, who seeks to find $100,000 stashed away by a Mexican general.

Comment

With more than 5 mio admissions this little known film was one of the Italian box office hits of 1965. The name Ringo is in the title (for obvious reasons) but not in the film and apart from that the reasons for the success of this overall average SW are not really evident. The directing qualities of De Martino's next SW, Django Shoots First, are hard to detect here.
