Review

Genre specialist Mario Bava takes a rare trip out to the plains in this rousing comedy-Western that turns the work of iconic spaghetti Western specialist Sergio Leone on its head. When Roy Colt (Brett Halsey) and Winchester Jack (Charles Southwood) fail to make a living at living dishonestly, Roy resolves to dissolve the partnership and earn an honest dollar in Carson City. Unexpectedly greeted upon arrival at Carson City with a badge and a gun, newfound sheriff Roy gets that old familiar feeling when the nervous citizens entrust him with a replica of a stolen treasure map that is said to lead to a bounty of buried gold. Unfortunately for Roy, the mysterious Reverend Teodoro Corra, a dynamite-toting Russian outlaw; his old partner Jack; a Jewish desperado named Berenstein (Mauro Bosco); and a wanted Native American seductress (Marilù Tolo) are also gunning for the gold. By the time Roy reaches the Indian burial ground where the gold is said to be buried, it's anyone's guess as to who will get the gold first.

Comment

The third western by Mario Bava is just another one which does neither please the fans of the director nor the SW fans very much. It's a half hearted mix of drama and comedy with undecided elements of self parody. In parts sloppily directed the film tries to be everything and ends being nothing really.
