Synopsis

This peculiar spaghetti western from director Adalberto Albertini (Return of Shanghai Joe) stars Tony Kendall (Luciano Stella) as the leader of a group of traveling circus acrobats. The performers enlist the aid of revolutionary exile Serrano and his men in order to rid a frontier town of its cruel boss (Farnese).

Comment

The acrobat hero theme - really this film's only distinguishing characteristic - reappeared in several Eurowesterns including Giuseppe Colizzi's classic Boot Hill.
