Acceptable Ravioli with Paella Western , being well co-produced by Italy and Spain
Funny Spaghetti Western with humor , shootouts , action ,violence and amusement . The story is similar to previous classic film ¨The magnificent seven¨ , adding ¨Dirty dozen¨ wake , including customary outlaw band formed by an eclectic gang with diverse speciality , as dynamite or guns . This Western comedy gets action Western , exciting riding , shootouts , it's funny and entertaining , although nothing new but displays a Spaghetti/Trinity style . This serious-comic Western deals with an ex-sergeant named Corky (Poldo) decided to take a group of ex-soldiers and strike a blow against the Mexican bandit Sancho Rodriguez (Fernando Sancho) who has besieged a mine and is devastating the small town called Straton . Corky goes to Federal prison and frees a bunch of misfit thieves and other prisoners . As the group is formed by a cocky card player (Frank Oliveras) , a drunk fat (Tito Garcia) , Brett Colton (Spartaco Conversi) and a gunslinger (Daniel Martin) who seeks vendetta against Rodriguez . The motley group join forces with the young man , Timothy Benson , he's a dandy lawyer wearing elegant clothes who inherits a mine that has been taken by wealthy land-grabbing Ramirez . His mentors are six sympathetics crooks who teach him to shoot and ride .
The film contains action-Western , shootouts , fist-play, humor with tongue in cheek and is pretty bemusing . It's an entertaining film with enjoyable comedy in the wake of Trinity . It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonists and the enemy led by the great Fernando Sancho along with his hoodlums . The film blends violence , thrills , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing a shootout or stunt every few minutes , including a spectacular final duel on a river between Fernando Sancho and Daniel Martin . This is a passable Spaghetti Western with some moments genuinely entertaining if you can avoid thinking too much . Agreeable casting with a likable Sean Flynn as a naive East young man and Ida Galli or Evelyn Stewart as a gorgeous girl looking for the dreamt prince . Sean , son's Errol Flynn , made a few more films in Europe, in all of which he was extraordinarily handsome but not particularly skilled or at ease before the camera. He leaved cinema and became a legendary figure in military and journalism circles but in April , 1970, while covering the widening of combat to the border areas of Cambodia, Flynn disappeared . This is a co-production Spain-Italy and for that reason there appears usual secondaries from Paella or Chorizo Western as Daniel Martin , Tito Garcia , Rafael Albaicin and Western all'Italiana actors as Frank Oliveras , Osvaldo Genazzani , Spartaco Conversi , among others . The musician Guino Peguri composes a vibrant soundtrack and well conducted ; including a catching leitmotif and considered to be one of the best . Atmospheric scenario with barren outdoors, dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun and a fine sets with striking cinematography by Victor Monreal in Eastmancolor with negative regularly processed , being necessary a right remastering . Interior filmed in Alfonso Balcazar Studios and outdoor sequences filmed on location in Fraga (Huesca) ; Alfonso Balcazar built a Western town in Spuglas of Llobregat (Barcelona) and along with Tabernas (Almeria) were the main locations where in the 60s and 70s were shot innumerable Spaghetti and Chorizo Western .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Romolo Guerrieri , though with no originality , being pretty predictable . Romolo is a good craftsman who has directed all type of genres such as post-nuke Sci-fi as ¨ The last warrior¨, Italian crime or Poliziottesco as "Young, Violent, Dangerous" , ¨City under siege¨ , "Ring of Death" and western as ¨10.000 Dollari per un massacre¨ , Johnny Yuma¨ and this ¨Seven guns for Timothy¨.
