Synopsis

Money hungry Samantha Felton connives with her brother Pedro to murder her husband in order to get her hands on his ranching empire only to discover that he has left everything to his nephew, Johnny. She decides to hire her ex lover, and ruthless bounty killer, Carradine to get rid of the unwanted heir. Meanwhile, Johnny arrives in town, discovers the plan against him, forms a mutual respect for Carradine and sets out to find the hidden will which would scupper Mrs. Felton's evil plans.

Comment

Well made SW with some minor flaws. Damon is maybe a bit unlikeable for many in the lead, but this is compensated by the well acted roles of Dobkin and Neri. The simplicity of some of Johnny Yuma's parts is balanced by several intelligent story variations and the verve of Guerrieri's stylish directing. - by Stanton
