In this western, the town of Glory prepares to stage its annual Founder's Day showdown on Main Street. The guest gunslingers this year are two notorious gunmen, but a mysterious stranger shows up to tell the Mayor that he has recently killed one of the scheduled gunfighters and now intends to take his place in the contest.
Nothing in the film indicates any reason why they came up with the name "Manitoba". Marianne Koch is also in A Fistful of Dollars. Lex Barker and Pierre Brice also star in a series of Karl May adaptations, this is the only time outside those that they were in a film together. The movie features some common spaghetti western faces, such as Aldo Sambrell.
