Forsythe, who uses his wife as bait, has gained a reputation as a gunslinger. When the game backfires, and she is killed, he sets out in pursuit, but a mysterious rider joins the chase.
The Italian and English title may suggest it (and the English one is indeed often written as MacGregor), but this one has absolutely nothing to do with Franco Giraldi's 2 MacGregor westerns.
Atmospheric and gritty western from the director of Réquiem para el gringo, which is a bit incoherent in places due to the story being told in two parts, some anachronistic 70s clothes and some narrative fractures. But it is stylish enough to be a satisfying whole, and surely belongs to the "little gem" category.
