Trivia

The name "Buster Crab" is scrawled on the wall of a prison cell. This is an homage to American actor Buster Crabbe, who made many westerns in the 1940s and 1950s. See more »

Goofs

During the gunfight on the hillside, the two brothers randomly fire off rounds, or at least they cock their pistols and pull the trigger each time, and a pistol shot sound is heard. However, the guns don't kick and there is no smoke from the fired cartridges, so they aren't even firing blanks. They are just pulling the trigger on unloaded chambers. See more »

Acceptable Chorizo / Spaghetti Western with noisy action , shootouts and some of violence and humor
13 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The ranch of the MacGregor family (George Rigaud , Ana Maria Noe) is attacked by some bandits (Antonio Iranzo) and they defend thanks a cannon called Queen Anna and then their sons come to help . Later on, the cousins and sons ( Robert Woods , Tony Zamperla, Roberto DellÁcqua, Julio Perez Tabernero, Manuel Zarzo) go to Las Mesas where takes places the fair county for selling their horses . There rules the powerful baron land Crawford (Chris Huerta). At the Saloon happens a fist-fight and the brothers are detained and imprisoned , but they escape . A poster says : ¨WANTED 250 DOLLARS REWARD SIX DESPERADOS TRAVELING TOGETHER FOR DISTURBING THE PEACE AND JAIL BREAKING IN LAS MESAS COUNTY ARIZONA¨. But Crawford and sheriff (Antonio Molino Rojo ) are allied of nasty Santillana (Leo Anchoriz) and the eldest son Gregor (Robert Woods) attempts to join the Santillana band . Meanwhile the brothers rob the local bank posing as Santillana hoodlums and a ranch is assaulted by the outlaws , being saved Rita (Agata Fiori) by the MacGregor. The highlights of the film result to be the stirring finale when the brothers are besieged by the cutthroats and are rescued by all Scottish of the county who come to help under the shout of 'whisky and glory' and with the bagpipes musical background.

This S.W. packs fist-fights , Shootém Up , thrills, humor and amusement . However it contains some violent scenes as when Chris Huerta is dragged through firing bushes and continuous mistreatment to starring that includes punches , kicks and lashes . The idea of Scottish in old west was formerly brought to life in ¨ The ghost goes west (1936) ¨ by Rene Clair . It's a co-production Spanish-Italian and shot on location in Colmenar Viejo , Hoyo of Manzanares , Aranjuez and Guadix (Spain) with production design by Cubero and Galicia ; furthermore is well photographed by cameraman Alejandro Ulloa - Horror Express- . In the movie appears usual support actors as Spanish : Chris Huerta , Rafael Bardem, Rafael Hernandez , Perla Cristal, Victor Israel and of course the Spaghetti idol Fernando Sancho as usual role as Mexican bandit ; and Italian players : Nazzareno Zamperla , Pierre Cressoy , and Roberto Dell'Acqua , among others . Original musical score by Ennio Morricone, conducted by Bruno Nicolai , who composes an amusing ¨Marcia Dei MacGregor¨ . The motion picture is professionally directed by Franco Giraldi . This Italian writer / filmmaker ( and Sergio Leone 's assistant director ) so consistently mixed the good with the mediocre that it became quite impossible to know what to expect from him next . He directed four Western with abundant touches of humor ( Sugar Colt -66-, Seven guns for the MacGregor -66- , 7 women for the MacGregor -1967- ) and one serious and violent ( A minute to pray , a second to day -1968- ). Rating : acceptable and passable movie that will appeal to Spaghetti buffs . It's followed by an inferior sequel ¨Seven women for MacGregor¨ with more comedy elements and David Bailey replacing to Robert Woods .
