The Film

In a border town the famous gunslinger Ringo kills four people out of self defense but is arrested nevertheless. Meanwhile a gang of Mexicans cross the border and rob the local bank. Their leader is wounded when they try to escape and therefore the bandits take refuge on a nearby ranch, taking the occupants hostage. The sheriff is reluctant to take action because his fiancée is among the hostages. The only one who can help him now is Ringo, who is set free and asked to infiltrate the gang …


The first of two Ringo movies was one of the most successful Italian westerns made in the trail of Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars. It tells a similar story of a passer by who intervenes in a conflict, but director Tessari’s approach is more light-hearted and unlike Eastwood’s Man without a Name, Ringo is a clean-shaven and well-dressed hero. He’s above all a very good-looking man (Angel Face), but in true spaghetti western style, he’s lethal with the gun; his motto is “God created all men equal, the Colt made them different”. The film made a star out of former stuntman Giuliano Gemma and also meant a lot for Spanish actor Fernando Sancho, one of the most prolific Spanish actors of all time. - Scherpschutter
