The musical score of the film included some parts of the score for Malamondo in order to justify including Ennio Morricone in the score credits of the film. Morricone sued the producer and the dispute was settled in court in 1973. See more »
An action-packed but unremarkable Spaghetti Western with a Civil War backdrop: it starts off with a confrontation over miserable prison service in the mould of SPARTACUS (1960), features a particularly animated bar-room brawl, and the climax takes place inside an abandoned mine. Lead Giuliano Gemma is in his element, but the villains are comic-book types - and the heroine, though spirited, is monotonous and an absolutely resistible chanteuse! The score is credited to Ennio Morricone and Gianni Ferrio: apparently, the producers borrowed some previously-composed music by the former to justify the use of his name
but he later took them to court over it!!
