A mysterious gunfighter named Django is employed by a local crooked political boss as a hangman to execute innocent locals framed by the boss, who wants their land. What the boss doesn't know is that Django isn't hanging the men at all, just making it look like he is, and using the men he saves from the gallows to build up his own "gang" in order to take revenge on the boss, who, with Django's former best friend, caused the death of his wife years before.

Following the success of the Bud Spencer/Terence Hill Italo western comedies in Germany this film was re-released as a re-dubbed comedy version in the late 1970s. Therefore it was heavily cut to 82 minutes and changed in plot. Django (now renamed to Joe) even mentions "the big" a few times referring to several characters of Bud Spencer in other movies.

Django (Terence Hill) travels from town to town as a hangman, but secretly saves the lives of the condemned and recruits them for a special task: revenge on David and Lucas who are responsible for an attack on a gold transport years ago in which Django's wife was killed. The problems begin when one member of Django's gang starts making plans for his own benefit... All the essential ingredients of spaghetti westerns are here, including digging on the graveyard and a shootout with a machine-gun taken from a coffin. This is almost an archetype for the genre, it surely became a favorite of the spaghetti western fans over the years, and Terence Hill was never a more serious anti-hero than here, even though more and more irony is sneaking in, but that is a development similar to "For A Few Dollars More" compared to its predecessor "A Fistful of Dollars".
