The film starts and ends in a quite violent way, but in-between turns into an episodic comedy about the growing, but troubled friendship between a crook and his slightly dumb partner, which foreshadows the Trinita films. The mixture of styles is a bit odd at times in this entertaining, but minor SW.

Synopsis

Two drifters meet, and soon become travelling companions. But one of them, Tim (Gemma), is being chased by a crazed killer and his band of gunmen to settle an old score. The two (Adorf being the other) are chased through the west, encountering scrape after scrape until the killers catch up and the score is settled for good.

Comment

The film starts and ends in a quite violent way, but in-between turns into an episodic comedy about the growing, but troubled friendship between a crook and his slightly dumb partner, which foreshadows the Trinita films. The mixture of styles is a bit odd at times in this entertaining, but minor SW.
