Civil War union soldiers purchase a shipment of gold from a Mexican banker. They need to get the gold to its destination. However along the way, a gang of crooks, the unethical banker & his gang, and Dynamite Jim all decide that they want to get their hands on the gold also. Written by
The plot about smuggling gold and double crossing thieves is old hat, and Dynamite Jim is one of those laid back, sarcastic quipsters. In the middle, playing off all sides, is Rosalba Neri's character Margaret. She gets to wear a couple of nice dresses and look pretty great, and while the role is hardly taxing, it's all good fun for Neri watchers. She's out for herself and wants the gold anyway she can get it. It's a decent role and she manages to stay alive past the 30 minutes mark. Fernando Sancho is second billed but has few scenes. Some of the fight scenes ( as well as Jim's one liners ) have comic sound effects added The is minimal violence and no blood during shootouts. The full screen video I saw looked like 16 mm and had muffled audio, and was brutally cropped and panned and scanned. Not ideal in the A/V dept.but could have been worse, and 2.35 widescreen remastered DVD would be a far nicer way to evaluate this one. Rosalba's star would far brighter the same year in JOHNNY YUMA, but this is also well worth a look for fans of the Euro goddess Neri
