Montero (former Cisco Kid Gilbert Roland) is an
otlawtrying to rob a money train, something that seems almost impossible.
Clayton (77 Sunset Strip's Kookie Edd Byrnes) is the bank's
employee responsible for the money train - but actually he is in cahoots
with Montero. The Stranger (Geeorge Hilton) is a ruthless bounty hunter at
the present time going after Montero ... but Montero isn't that easy to
Eventually, Montero goes through with his heist of the money train, and
everything goes smoothly ... until one of his men gets away with the loot
and hides it in a safe place. But when Montero has finally tracked him
down, the traitor is shot by the posse that came after Montero, while
Montero is arrested, not knowing the whereabouts of the loot and his only
clue now being a crest he from now on wears around his neck ...
Montero is soon convicted to death by a firing squad ... which is where
the Stranger comes in, as he simply won't let the reward money for Montero
slip through his hands - much less the loot he soon enough has figured has
something to do with the crest around Montero's neck. So disguised as a
priest, the Stranger pays Montero a visit, tells him about his plans to
break him free and takes one half of the crest as a token of trust.
Unfortunately, while Montero is lead to his firing squad, Clayton gets his
hands on the other half, and when the Stranger has finally saved Montero's
life, Montero, supported by his gang, is enough of a bastard to steal the
other half of the crest back.
Clayton meanwhile is working on finding the location of the loot by
comparing his half of the crest to those of historical church's in the
neighbourhood, and eventually the Stranger realizes he is on the right
track, steals back the second half of the crest and teams up with Clayton,
and together the two have figured out the location of the church where the
loot is hidden in no time.
But by now pretty much everyone wants his hands on the loot, including
Montero, his men who have turned their backs on him, and a crooked
insurance agent (Gérard Herter) ... but after quite some trickery and a
big shootout, Clayton, the Stranger and Montero make friends and share the
money between them.
A light spaghetti Western that manages to be ironic without being silly
(remember, it was the silliness that later destroyed the genre) and that
features plenty of unusual plottwists and an abundance of action to keep
the audience interested (even if actionwise, Enzo Castellari, whose debut film
as a director this was, wasn't yet on top of his game). All that, combined with a
beautiful directing job and adequate actors, makes this one maybe no classic
but totally watchable.
