Jed (Tomas Milian) is an unlikely hero in this Italian western. As thoroughly unlikable a robber as ever walked the West, he nonetheless robs from the rich and gives to the poor. Not only is he a murderous, ill-tempered sort, he is bad-mannered, too. When Sonny (Susan George) decides he should be her man and teach her how to be a proper outlaw, sparks fly.


"Sergio Corbucci doesn't have much luck with his lout westerns lately. This cumbersome Bonnie and Clyde model presents Tomas Milian and Susan George as shaggy yobs in a stone age look, who rake the propertied class, let churl speech through their teeth and resist their treacherous enemies. But this is neither especially funny nor super adventurous. Only semi rude and pretty confuse." (Ponkie)

At least Corbucci's then famous visual framing is still recognizable in this SW, which he probably made with "the little finger of the left hand". (by Stanton)
