Ringo comes to a Mexican village, searching for his brother from whom he has heard no news. He comes with a sheriff who immediately has work on his hands, as those who get killed are certainly too many.


Mickey Hargitay mysteriously disappears from the film about a quarter of the way through. In reality he flew home to California when he heard his son Zoltan was mauled by a tiger at Jungleland during a publicity shoot for his wife Jayne Mansfield. He was replaced by Jean Luis and the story was changed to his brother Ringo investigating the mysterious disappearance of Mike.
