Giuliano Gemma, appointed sheriff of Greenfield, is unjustly accused of murder and forced to flee. The man behind the false charge is a lurid figure who leads a band of cattle rustlers. Our hero tries to prove his innocence by getting rid of his enemies one by one.
The last of the eight early (and very successful) westerns which Giuliano Gemma made within 2 years in quick succession. It was his third (and also his last) collaboration with veteran director Giorgio Ferroni, and like his 2 higher valued predecessors it is also a rather naive film, which tells an uncomplicated and old fashioned story in an antiquated style. The nonetheless entertaining film has an unusual wintery atmosphere (but a few scenes shot in a sunny Spain don't match with the rest) and due to a higher budget, generally compelling photography and production design.
