I've only seen Adam West in one other western, the painfully boring "Outlaws is Coming," which he did with the three stooges. After seeing his performance in that one, I was kind of expecting another yawner, but this movie proves once again that the Italians really knew how to make em' right!
This film has great camera work, suspenseful fights, an awesome music score, and an excellent story that is actually kind of original for a spaghetti western. The acting is funny in a couple of parts, but that just adds to the charm. This is, after all, a spaghetti western. If you're expecting a Gary Cooper or John Wayne movie, then stay away from this one and leave it to those of us who appreciate and understand the appeal of the Italian westerns.
