The Film

One of the first paella/spaghetti westerns, and the first one produced by the Balcázar Studios. Woods is a gunman who wins 5000 $ in a poker game and also becomes co-owner of a ranch. A corrupt landowner tries to chase all small farmers from the valley. This early euro western is a modest production, saved only by some nice location work and a flamboyant performance by the great Fernando Sancho as a rascal with a heart of gold, but still as trustworthy as a rattlesnake …
