Comments

One of the best examples (and film wise) of the forgotten gems of the Spaghetti Western. A well made, original, and thoroughly interesting mystery thriller disguised as a Western. A film comparable to Sleuth as it is set in only 2 locations. A stagecoach way station and the sprawling plains of the west. (Or sprawling sand pits of Rome). Don't miss it. --Korano 23:53, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
