===Comment===
Made at the same time as Fistful of Dollars and premiered shortly thereafter (without having much success), this entertaining early SW already shows most of the typical trademarks of the genre in a primarily satisfying way. Only the aging hero is more modelled after American standards, but here he has also to deal with his diminishing eyesight. Not the last SW hero with a physical handicap. It was Corbucci's real SW debut (after working more or less on the average Massacre at Grand Canyon) and was the first Italian Western on which the director didn't hide behind an American sounding pseudonym.

Two endings of the film exist, one which ends directly after the final shootout, while the other one has 4 extra minutes, including a last shot not less absurd then the unused alternative end of The Great Silence. ( by Stanton )

Synopsis

An ageing gunfighter, who was sentenced wrongly, manages to escape from prison. He then seeks out the one man who can prove his innocence and is caught thereby in a fight between two rival gangs. Because he is slowly going blind, he must make use of his enhanced sense of hearing.

Comment

Made at the same time as Fistful of Dollars and premiered shortly thereafter (without having much success), this entertaining early SW already shows most of the typical trademarks of the genre in a primarily satisfying way. Only the aging hero is more modeled after American standards, but here he has also to deal with his diminishing eyesight. Not the last SW hero with a physical handicap. It was Corbucci's real SW debut (after working more or less on the average Massacre at Grand Canyon) and was the first Italian Western on which the director didn't hide behind an American sounding pseudonym.

Two endings of the film exist, one which ends directly after the final shootout, while the other one has 4 extra minutes, including a last shot not less absurd then the unused alternative end of The Great Silence. ( by Stanton )
