Lanky Fellow has a typical cynical SW like way to earn his living. He observes valuable transports of money or gold, but when they are robbed he doesn't intervene, but follows the robbers and then brings the loot back to collect the insurance. When his "job" brings him in conflict with the notorious outlaw Gus Kenneback, he has personal reasons to protect the money as Kenneback was once responsible for the death of Lanky's brother.


Tonino Valerii worked as an assistant director on For a Few Dollars More, and when he had the chance to direct his own western, he reused many of the familiar actors and locations of the Leone westerns, as well as trying to work in his own style. He remained a good copyist, albeit he lacks the deeper inspiration, in this likeable and entertaining, but also not too remarkable SW.
