A stranger being chased by bandits dies in an accident, but not before he has had a chance to hide a treasure map the bandits wanted. A boy witnesses where it was hidden, retrieves it and passes it on to the local preacher. The preacher recognizes that much of the treasure was likely that from a local mission. He sets out to get it before the bandits find it. Written by Fryingham

Between God, the Devil and a Winchester (1968)

** (out of 4)

Mildly entertaining Spaghetti Western is a variation on Stevenson's Treasure Island. In the film, an old man shows up with a treasure map and hires a bandit to take him to the location but the old man is killed during a shoot out. A kid and a peaceful man eventually get a hold of the map and once again the bandit is taking them to the location when more double crossing happens. There are several major plot holes with this film including the fact that bandits keep being used even though the characters know very well that this is just going to lead to trouble. Every time one of the bandits are killed it seems the group brings another in for help. Another problem is that the film is very poorly made and comes off looking incredibly ugly with some very bad camera-work. Some of the tracking shots in this thing are beyond bad. Even with all that said the film does have a few good moments and that includes one scene where a woman is being attacked by the bandit so she breaks a lantern over his head. Gilbert Roland, iron hand and all, is very good and keeps the film moving. Carlo Savina's music score is certainly the highlight of the film.
