Jeff McNeil's sister was killed by the Cooper gang. In the town of Stanton he gets his revenge.
Here we are clearly in Fidani country. A reward poster in the Sheriff's office with the word "Reward" twice in big letters above a sum of "5000$" on it, but with no name or picture on it, shows how accurately this true turkey was made. Recommended for fans of the unintended humour, and a true contender for the dodgy honour to be the worst SW ever.
The film was already shot in 1972 but for unknown reasons wasn't released until 1975. The music was basically taken from Cipriani's Blindman soundtrack and the first 10 min especially contain scenes from Tanio Boccia's La lunga cavalcata della vendetta.
