Average Tortilla Western in colorful scenarios and dealing with Canadian Mounted Police and Indian wars
Inferior Tortilla Western dealing with Canadian Mounted Police , being middlingly directed by Ramon Torrado . This Gazpacho Western deals with Rojas Casacas or ¨Red Long Coats¨ from Mounted Police operating along the US/Canadian border . A Corporal named Paul White (Alan Scott) going to a new destination in a far Fort and along the way finds a damsel in distress called Valerie (Maria Silva) who results to be the commander's (Frank Latimore) girlfriend . Later on , the Corporal along with two rebels (Barta Barri , Tito Garcia) are imprisoned by Indians , being mistreated and tortured , but a good Indian girl (Diana Lorys) frees him . Paul falls in love with the gorgeous Indian and both of whom suffer hot pursuits , risks and dangers .
This is effortless and below average story in Paella Western sub-genre style , thus the picture includes the Canadian theme similarly to ¨Unconquered¨ by Cecil B De Mille and ¨The Canadians¨ by Burt Kennedy . As the movie follows more the American models than Spaghetti Western wake . Other Spanish films about Canadian Mounted Police are ¨Mestizo¨ by Julio Buchs and "Revolt in Canada¨ by Amando De Ossorio ; concerning similar events , battles between Red Skins and Red Long Coats. As it results to be a familiar film , with no much violence , though there are many deaths . The picture contains an exciting and spectacular final battle , though badly paced , including hundreds of extras , when the regiment is besieged by Indians . However , nobody seems to be wearing any clothes more than a week old, and modern day police special pistols are used alongside of prop-ish looking firearms with little or no concern about authenticity . Characters use knives that are brand new, reflectively shiny and don't appear to be sharpened . Regularly played by Alan Scott, and Frank Latimore who overacts as an upright and stiff commander . Many other familiar faces from Chorizo/Spaghetti , there appears ordinary secondaries in Spanish/Italian Western such as Alfonso Rojas , Barta Barri, Luis Barboo , Fernando Bilbao , Xan Das Bolas , Frank Braña ,Rufino Inglés , Alfonso de la Vega , Tito García and special mention to Rafael Hernández who plays the starring's partner , acting as comic relief . Colorful photography by Ricardo Torres , being necessary a right remastering , and filmed on location in Las Rozas , Manzanares , Navacerrada Madrid . Atmospheric musical score by Daniel White , Jesus Franco's usual . The movie was produced in enough budget by Regia Film/Arturo Gonzalez and Jose Frade productions that financed several Western during the 60s and early 70s such as ¨Cuatreros¨ , ¨Mestizo¨ , ¨Challenge of McKenna¨ , ¨The mercenary¨ , ¨Los Compañeros¨, ¨twenty dollars for seven¨ and ¨Saddle tramps¨ , among others.
The motion picture was regularly directed by Ramon Torrado . Ramon was born in 1905 , Galicia, Spain. He was a director and writer, known for directing some vehicles of known Folklorics stars such as Peret in Amor a Todo gas (1969) , Manolo Escobar in Un Beso en Puerto (1966) and Paquito Rico in Malvaloca (1954). Torrado directed four mediocre Chorizo Westerns such as 1965 Los Cuatreros , 1964 La Carga de la Policía Montada , 1964 Relevo a Pistolero and 1963 Bienvenido, Padre Murray .
