Synopsis

This time, Sartana helps a gambler named Grand Full (Piero Lulli), who claims to have been wrongly accused of murder. The avenger breaks Grand Full out of jail and the pair escape to the site of the crime -- the town of Mansfield -- where they battle bounty hunters and a wicked boss (Massimo Serato) before the gunslinger figures out that he's been had. Needless to say, Sartana does not take kindly to having been fooled.

Comment

In the fourth and last of the "official" Sartana westerns with Gianni Garko in the lead, the James Bond like gadgets tend to get a bit over the top, and it is therefore a good example of how the SWs were becoming more absurd as the film makers tried to top the already decadent sensations of the previously made films. Less polished and less stylish then its predecessor, Have a Good Funeral my Friend, Sartana Will Pay, this entry of the popular series is still pretty entertaining and will not disappoint the fans. In fact many think of it as the best of the bunch.
