The original director, Antonio Román, was fired by producer Fulvio Lucisano for his slow pace and not meeting the standards after directing less than 10% of the film. Although Mario Bava directed the bulk of the movie, he is not credited at all for directing it. See more »

Stranger Clark helps a rancher and his beautiful wife (Bastien) against a ruthless bunch of cowboys. Cardboard western with little action and suspense and a leisurely paced plot. Still not that bad. Legendary Mario Bava's direction is utterly conventional (he replaced film's original director Antonio Román), he obviously made this without much ambition. Score by Nino Oliviero dominates this tame spaghetti western. Román was credited with the direction for more than twenty years until Bava's involvement was made known. Still, some believe this to be Bava's best western (his ROY COLT wasn't much better anyway).
