Jack Palance and Giancarlo Prete play a pair of frontier sharpsters who are trying to sell a supposedly worthless gold mine. When the mine turns out to be real, our two misfits, along with their inept entourage, must try and recover the deed to the mine in this slapstick SW.


Another harebrained comedy full of forced silliness. In parts funny, in parts only daft. The leading player, Giancarlo Prete, tries himself as a Giuliano Gemma imitator and Jack Palance as a false monk is not as bad as one might think. - by Stanton
