Decent European Western With A More Traditional Approach
22 February 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Former gunfighter Clint (George Martin) returns to his wife and young son's farm, where he's taken back if he takes a vow of non-violence. However, trying to conform to his wife's standards starts to lose him the affection of his son, after he's forced to back down in the face of a nasty cattle baron and his goons, including familiar face Fernando Sancho.

A Spanish/German/Italian co-production, shot in Germany, this tries a bit harder than the average spaghetti western to replicate the look and feel of it's traditional American counterpart. This certainly looks more like the American west than other European westerns I've seen.

As mentioned before, Clint The Stranger borrows it's plot pretty much verbatim from Shane. This is quite reminiscent also of 1950's The Gunfighter, with Gregory Peck.

This is a decent and somewhat believable movie, but Clint's wife's stubborn stance against violence is pretty hard to take, considering the shenanigans of the films villains!

Four years later George Martin reprised his role and directed an equally alright remake/sequel that more easily fit the mold of the spaghetti western.
