Synopsis

Gritty Italian director Paolo Bianchini (aka Paolo Bianchi) made this violent spaghetti western, which compensates for its standard plot by the sheer grimness of its tone. Dean Reed stars as an infamous bounty-hunter named Compton, who is hired by the residents of a small town on the Mexican border to stop a series of gold robberies by marauding outlaws. The fact that the robberies are being coordinated by the town's corrupt banker is no surprise, but Fernando Di Leo's script makes up for its predictability with pure energy. The film is well-photographed by Sergio D'Offizi and acted by a veteran cast - Peter Martell, Piero Lulli, Agnes Spaak, and Ivano Staccioli are among the faces familiar to genre fans, and Marcello Gigante's low-key score only adds to the tension.
