Synopsis

A young deserter from the army returns to the place where his father has been killed by a family of Mexican landowners. The task is not easy as he is alone in his efforts to avenge his father's death.

Comment

Well enough made early SW with a simple revenge story and an interesting score, which was most likely directed (without getting the credit) by Edoardo Mulargia, in which case it was his SW debut. It was also the first starring role in a SW for Anthony Steffen, who then became after this initial success despite some acting limitations one of the most prolific B-stars of the genre, with a total of 24 leads from 1965 to 1972.
