Never Bury Your Gun!
6 March 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

A young pistolero leaves his wounded partner and runs off with the man's daughter to get married. Attempting to settle down outside a very crooked town, he's soon forced to defend his new spread against vicious land-grabbers and himself from his angry father-in-law.

A short and colorful spaghetti western, there's a lot of fun to be had here. However, the main character is pretty naive for an ultra-cool hired gun!

Heroes are appropriately heroic and villains appropriately villainous. The Morricone-like score isn't bad either, all making this pretty watchable for casual viewers and spaghetti western fans alike.

Once again, bankable stars are nonexistent, relegating this to near obscurity, though a few familiar European faces show up, most notably the late Aldo Sambrell, who appeared in nearly every one of the era's great Italian westerns.
