Anthony Steffen and Eduardo Fajardo have a gold map and Frank Wolff wants in
Beautiful photography of beautiful scenery, beautiful music, excellent acting and an action-packed scenario filled with double crosses mark this sturdy spaghetti western. This one is ranked as average (6.1) by IMDb voters. If so, then the makers of these westerns have nothing at all to be ashamed of. This is a very good western! They should be proud of having produced such good entertainment that we're still watching it 47 years later and it's still fresh.
The plot is an adventure story in which various combinations of the principals ally with one another and turn against one another, as well as face various obstacles as they trek forward in search of first part of a gold map and then the gold itself.
Anthony Steffen and Eduardo Fajardo are like son and father. Wolff is the devious interloper constantly spreading dissension. Armando Calco, another principal, has part of the map tattooed on his back.
Plenty of plot as a corrupt sheriff and a bandit gang also get into the act.
This film looks great. It doesn't have the classic feel or cachet of the top westerns in this genre but it is still more than satisfactory. From what I have sampled of others so far, these movies well deserve their audiences then and now.
