Garringo movie poster


Garringo is an undeservingly lesser known effort by spaghetti western director Rafael Romero Marchent. Anthony Steffen stars as a rogue army lieutenant tracking Johnny (Peter Lee Lawrence), the crazed son of a soldier killed as a traitor, when he was a child. Johnny has a split personality and murders soldiers and leaves their lapels on his father's grave. When he's not killing soldiers he's a complete gentleman. Johnny was raised by the now sheriff of Bell City, who is confronted with loyalty to his stepson or his duty. There's plenty of familiar faces here and a nice score to help the movie along.
