When a gang of outlaws led by Sam Clayton (Jack Palance) virtually invade the hometown of young Johnny (Leif Garrett), son of saloon owner Jenny (Sybil Danning), that's bad enough, but when they also shoot Johnny's best friend, reverend John (Lee Van Cleef), who has been like a father to him, that's too much for the boy, he loses his voice, and he rides through the desert to fetch Father John's brother Lewis (Lee Van Cleef again), the reverend's dead ringer, to avenge his death.

Lewis was a gunman once, but his clergyman berother made him change his ways, and thus he decides to exact revenge without even firing a single shot - by dressing up as his late brother and scare the living shit out of Clayton's gang. And really, most gangmembers get so spooked out by Lewis' little charade that they shoot each other dead.

Meanwhile, Sam though has learned that Johnny is actually his son from a rape, and he starts having fatherly feelings for the boy, even though Johnny despises him, and takes off with Johnny and his mother, leaving his gang to Lewis' revenge and the angry mob, who only now dare to come out of their holes when the odds have turned in their favour.

It all boils down to a duel in an abandoned mission between Sam and Lewis, and Lewis seems to defeat Sam by simply shooting the gun out of his hand ... but Sam has another gun concealed in a bag full of money - though when he tries to fetch that, Johnny finds his voice again just in time to warn Lewis, who shoots Sam in self-defense.

 


Not too bad Spaghetti Western thanks to fine pacing and a slick directorial effort - but on a story level, it unfortunately repeatedly borders plain kitsch, especially the whole Johnny-subplot (kids and Spaghetti Westerns just don't mix, do they?). On the other hand, the film also clearly has its moments, like when Lewis tricks teh outlaws to shoot each other, or (in an extremely cynical scene), when the townsfolks, who did little to prevent the outlaws from raping the female personnel of Jenny's saloon, suddenly come out of their holes when they find one defenseless outlaw to tear him apart (rather virtually).
