Synopsis

An entertaining little genre entry, light-hearted in tone but with a fairly high body count. Mexican bandits and their American associates terrorize the border region, but Peter Lee Lawrence and Luis Davila put an end to their tyranny. Tano Cimarosa is great fun as a pious bandit leader who worships all saints ... but throws their icons away one by one if he has the idea he was let down by any of them (Scherpschutter)
