Lone gunman Johnny West and his dog, Gypsy, fall foul of twin bad men who have designs on a gold mine. After having his gun hand crushed, Johnny is joined by 2 feuding ex-boxers and their explosive expert sidekick as they all take on the villains, restore the mine to it's rightful inheritor and face down the twins.


Johnny West is a minor but enjoyable SW, in which scenes of silly humour are alternating in a strange way with more typical SW elements. It's an early genre contribution by director Gianfranco Parolini, whose trademarks, pointing to his later and more successful SWs featuring Sartana and Sabata, are already visible. - by Stanton
