Synopsis

Alfonso Balcazar directed this revenge-themed spaghetti western, one of over 20 films trading on the success of Gianfranco Parolini's Se Incontri Sartana Prega per la Tua Morte (1968). Jorge Martin plays the legendary gunfighter, relentlessly stalking a gang of outlaws led by the ruthless Slim (Jack Elam) who murdered Sartana's bride (Donatella Turri). Featuring a cast full of genre favorites including Gilbert Roland, Gerard Tichy, Hugo Blanco, Diana Lorys, and Rosalba Neri, this Spanish-Italian co-production is one of the better entries in the series. Surprisingly, the grim script was co-written by Jaime Jesus Balcazar and slapstick specialist Giorgio Simonelli, whose Franco and Ciccio comedies are miles removed from this funereal western.
