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 »
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 »

This movie has a couple of interesting moments, but mostly it just tries to be "cute," and that doesn't really make for a good spaghetti western. Having a great music score from the master Ennio Morricone can't even save this one from being a below average example.
The most notable spaghetti western regular in this film is Fernando Sancho, who is usually great to watch, but here his role is simply that of a crony, and he doesn't get to shine.
As for the MacGregors, the senior members of the clan are gritty, tough old Scots, and I kind of liked them, but you don't really see that much of them in the film. The story focuses on the sons, who are so ridiculously happy-go-lucky it makes you sick. It's like watching a gang of seven Peter Pans, and they act like puppy dogs every time they see a pretty girl. In reality, these guys wouldn't survive very long in a brutal cutthroat western environment, yet somehow they do. The movie is also part love story, of course.
The most notable part of the film is an especially brutal scene where a guy is repeatedly dragged through a fire.
This one's kind of lame, and not really worth seeking out when there are so many better eurowesterns to choose from.
