Lee Van Cleef,
Director Sergio Sollima said on the DVD extras of the movie that it was in fact Ennio Morricone that scored the music for the film. Sergio Sollima said Morricone's conductor Bruno Nicolai got the credit probably because Morricone was tied up at another studio at the time and didn't want any trouble. See more »
Tomas Milian returns as Cuchillo, a petty thief who after being imprisoned helps his cell-mate and himself escape. He then gets entangled in a run to get the 3 million dollars in gold that his cell-mate, whom also happens to be a Mexican Revolutionary, hid in a town across the border in Texas. He's chased by his overbearing girlfriend who wants desperately to get married, a bounty hunter (Donald O'Brien), as well as some others.I have yet to see "The Big Gundown", so I can't compare the two, but I really enjoyed this movie and found it to be humorous well still maintaining some good action. And I certainly liked it much more then the previous Thomas Milian film that I've seen "Se sei Vivo spara" (Django Kill, if you live shoot)
