Synopsis

The bandit Pratt, looking for Tim, who is responsible for the death of his two sons, attacks a caravan killing all the passengers. Harry, the vagabond, after having robbed the dead, casually meets Tim and they become friends. Running away together from Pratt, they reach Harry's farm, but their hiding place is soon discovered...

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.
