Out of jail, but planning to return
1 April 2012 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

200,000 dollars are stolen in a stagecoach robbery, and soon two strangers are arrested: John and Jack. They are innocent (well, at least in this case) and because John has a broken arm, Jack decides to break out of jail alone, prove who the real bandits are, get hold of the money, kill the bad guys (whoever they may be) and return to John. Simple plan, difficult to carry out, though! In Tombstone, Jack cannot trust anybody, but he's got a few clever ideas to impress the enemies (he pretends he can shoot a hole through a coin, but exchanges the coin secretly because he actually missed) and doesn't hesitate even to tie the saloon girl (hot: Adriana Ambesi) to her bed for information. Yet he finds that the stagecoach robbers are well prepared to hide their true identities...

This was the first Italian western for William Berger who was to continue in the genre for many films until the 1980s. The character he portrays, Jack aka Ringo, is a typical blond hero type at first glance; but if you take a closer look at Ringo's problems with the law, especially with sheriffs, that is foreshadowing the more twisted characters Berger was to play later, for example in 'Sabata'. Eduardo Fajardo ('Django') is a perfect villain as always; in one scene, he uses a pistol disguised as a door-handle, I haven't seen this anywhere else before. Carlo Rustichelli's music enhances the action, and director Maffei (who was usually working as an assistant or second unit director) shows the necessary craftsmanship to put this together. The result is not outstanding in any way, but a solid low budget western without major flaws.
