Synopsis

The Criss brothers kill Gringo's brother and frame Gringo and his friend, Mexico, for a murder. They are taken to jail and along with the four bandits who are the real killers, escape and reach a village in which a fair is being held. Someone recognizes them and they must leave taking a dancer, Carmen, as a hostage. Gringo tries to protect her and is left in the desert all alone. Meanwhile the bandits rob a mail-coach and kill the escorts with Gringo hot on their trail.

Comment

Tough, well made SW with an exceptional first hour, which follows a heterogeneous group of prison escapists on their getaway journey in a stagecoach. After an unbelievably silly scene, the film returns to the background story, which is resolved in a good but conventional ending. Another good SW by director Edoardo Mulargia, his second best, even if he gave away in the last 20 min the potential for a similarly good film as El puro.
