Under Rated Film

This is a very unusual film dealing with a stranger, (Tony Anthony) who has a double reason for picking out this lonely abandoned looking town and finds some tough and rough looking characters who are really a bunch of cut-throats. The Stranger is looking for wanted men for a reward and also a gold shipment which is suppose to take place in this town. The Stranger keeps hidden and manages to watch everyone, even a woman who is a bi-sexual woman who has a man named Aguilar, (Frank Wolff) and a young girl with a baby. The Stranger gets caught and he makes a deal with Aguilar to give them some of the gold when it comes to town. There is very little conversation throughout this film and sometimes long periods of silence which keeps you anxious as to who is going to be beaten to death or killed. Don't miss this film, it has a great musical score and it seems like a film you have seen with Clint Eastwood as the star. Enjoy.
