Trivia

The video distribution in Brazil by Ocean Filmes was made under the title "Uma Pistola para Ringo" which is the literal translation of the earlier film _Una pistola per Ringo (1965)_, by the same director and mostly the same cast and crew. Shortly after, the distributor made a new edition with both 1965 Ringo titles. The problem was widely known, but not enough to prevent USA Filmes from committing the same mistake when it distributed the film in DVD. See more »

This Paella/Spaghetti Western is filled with action , thrills , intrigue and crossfire
12 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Spaghetti/Chorizo Western with the most successful intervention by secondary idol Fernando Sancho. This is the original installment from Gemma-Tessari trilogy formed by ¨A pistol for Ringo¨, ¨The return of Ringo¨ and ¨Kiss, Kiss , Bang , Bang¨ , though the later is set in modern times and deal with a heist . All of them are amusing and entertaining and starred by similar cast as Gemma , Fernando Sancho , Lorella De Luca , Nieves Navarro and Antonio Casas ; furthermore same artistic equipment . They are familiar films , in fact , the actress Lorella De Luca married director Duccio Tessari and Nieves Navarro married the producer Luciano Ercoli . This is the second part from Duccio Tessari trilogy , starred by an awesome Giuliano Gemma . It's a tremendously exciting story of an ex-soldier named Ringo who had only one more killing to go . Ringo (credited as Montgomery Wood) is a civil war soldier who goes back to his familiar land to find his family decimated, his senator father was killed , his manor taken over by a bunch of Mexican bandits named Esteban ( Fernando Sancho) and Paco Fuentes (Jorge Martin) and his fiancée ( Lorella De Luca) about to marry the nasty Mexican behind all this . Ringo (Giuliano Gemma) is spending time in discover the schemes the bandits . Once again Ringo seeks vengeance , he goes undercover disguised as a Mexican beggar and learns he has a daughter . Meanwhile , the gang of a nasty Mexican named Esteban (Fernando Sancho) and his bandits occupy a mansion and take the ranch and its inhabitants . The local Sheriff (Antonio Casas) gets no option but to send in Ringo. Ringo goes the ranch against Fuentes's hoodlums who kill and mistreat countrymen . Ringo comes to the ranch just in time to make sure its inhabitants and rescue his lover , taking place a cat and mouse game , but later the events get worse .

This Western is superior than subsequent outing because it displays thrills , emotion, shoot'em up , intrigue and is pretty amusing . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shots or stunts every few minutes . This is a good S.W. plenty of action , shootouts , fist-play and without touches of humor as in previous entry . Ringo is stunningly played by Gemma . Giuliano is very fine, he ravages the screen , he jumps , bounds and leaps, hit and run ; plus jokes , laughs , he's a complete show . Fernado Sancho as a cruelly baddie role as Mexican bandit is terrific , subsequently the would play similar role in other Spaghettis . In the movie appears usual support actors as Spanish : George Martin , Antonio Casas , Pajarito as Italian players as Zamperla and Frank Oliveras . Special mention to Nieves Navarro or Susan Scott as attractive and rogue woman but she unfortunately would finish shooting erotic cinema . It's a co-production Spanish-Italian and shot on location in Fraga , Huesca , Spain that is well photographed by Francisco Marin , though is necessary a fine remastering because the film-copy is washed-out .¨Fraga¨ resulted to be the location where were shot lots of Western produced and directed by Catalan people as Alfonso Balcazar , J.J. Balcazar , Jose Antonio De La Loma , Juan Bosch, Ignacio F. Iquino and Julio Buchs , among others , because Almeria was too far and the landscapes bear remarkable resemblance . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction and excellent production design by the usual Juan Albert Soler , he creates a magnificent scenario on the interior ranch and barren outdoors , dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun and fine sets filmed in Fraga and ,PC Alfonso Balcazar Studios, Barcelona and San Jose, Andalucia, Spain . As always , the musician Ennio Morricone, composes a nice Spaghetti soundtrack and well conducted and splendid leitmotif ; it's full of enjoyable sounds and emotive score , including enjoyable songs at the beginning and the end.

This Italian writer / filmmaker Duccio Tessari so consistently mixed the good with the mediocre that it became quite impossible to know what to expect from him next . He wrote several Western as ¨A fistful of dollars ¨, ¨A train to Durango ¨Seven guns for McGregor¨ , ¨The return of McGregor¨ . He directed five Western as ¨Tex e Il Signore degli abissi¨ and with abundant touches of humor as ¨Vivi o Preferibilment Morti¨, ¨Don't turn the other cheek¨ and ¨Zorro¨ with Alain Delon and of course ¨Ringo ¨and sequel , mostly starred with his fetish actor Giuliano Gemma . Tessari directed all kind of genres as drama , adventure , wartime as ¨1981 Un Centesimo Di second ,1978 Das Fünfte Gebot ,1976 La Madama ,1976 Safari Express , 1973 Tony Arzenta ,1973 Los Héroes Millonarios ,1972 Forza 'G', 1968 I Bastardi¨. Rating : 6 , acceptable and passable movie that will appeal to Spaghetti Western buffs .
