Errol's son Sean Flynn plays Timothy, a young lawyer who inherits a gold mine. The bandit Rodriguez (or "Sancho" in the German dubbed version, played by Fernando Sancho) tries to get hold of the mine by killing Timothy, but soon finds Timothy is not alone. Five experienced fighters teach the young man everything he needs to know about riding, shooting and drinking (!), and with the help of a silent stranger, they become "seven magnificent guns" ("Sette magnifiche pistole") to fight the bandits.
"I never get into trouble with the law - I am the law!", Rodriguez/Sancho once exclaims, and his oh-so typical role is pure bliss. The education of a greenhorn to turn him into a real westerner is hardly a new story, but told with enthusiasm. Even if the picture is flawed, obviously made with a low budget and suffering from lack of originality, it is surprisingly entertaining. The secret is probably its simplicity: it delivers what the audience expects. So be it.
