Storyline

Leon Alastray is an outlaw who has been given sanctuary by Father John, whom he then escorts to the village of San Sebastian. The village is deserted, with its cowardly residents hiding in the hills from Indians, who regularly attack the village and steal all their supplies. When Father John is murdered, the villagers mistakenly think the outlaw is the priest. Alastray at first tells them he is not a priest, but they don't believe it, and an apparent miracle seems to prove they are correct. Eventually, he assists them in regaining their confidence and defending themselves. Written by Espere

Extraordinary score

I have never actually seen the film, but Morricone's main theme is one of his greatest. Soaring, Beautiful, subtle and Unique. if the film is anything like as good as its score then it will be a masterpiece!

The score is up there with Morricone's compositions for The Good The Bad and The Ugly and A Fistful of dynamite. In some ways more conventional....in that this was a major MGM western and not just a pasta western. Worth remembering that Morricone carried on composing great scores for this Director, including the twangy accompaniment to The Scicillian Clan and all those great early 8o's action flicks with Belmondo (Not to forget of course The Burglars as well)
