Giuliano Gemma stars as Tex Willer, a western adventurer who, while investigating a convoy robbery, learns that a local witchdoctor has a secret weapon to use against the Aztecs - a green rock that turns men into mummies! Based on an Italian comic strip.


Based on a Texas Ranger comic-book hero who first rode into sight in 1948, this routine western is an Italian version of the adventures of Tex Willer (Giuliano Gemma), his sidekick Kit Carson (William Berger), and his Native American buddy Tiger Jack (Carlo Mucari). Predictably, Tiger Jack is nearly mute, and Tex wears a white cowboy hat, just to make clear which side he is on. A series of adventures take the trio into a confrontation with the Yaqui nation, intent on (finally) avenging the near-annihilation of their ancestors. To that end, the Yaquis rob a train, join forces with other Native Americans, and manage to concoct a secret weapon that is capable of immediately transforming their enemies into mummies. The "Lord of the Deep" is an alchemist parked at the bottom of a volcano, who creates a glowing green mummification rock (shades of kryptonite!). - unknown

Hopeless looking attempt to revitalise the western by merging it with elements from Indiana Jones. Only Gemma looks as young as ever.
