When Spaghetti Western aficionados recommend their favorite films, they will usually introduce people to The “Three Sergios,” that consists of Sergio Leone, Sergio Sollima and Sergio Corbucci. Even those unfamiliar the genre would surely be familiar with the masterworks of Leone, who created two of the greatest Western films of all time. Neither Sollima or Corbucci ever came close to the fame or acclaim of Leone, but stylistic and talented Sollima’s underrated The Big Gundown was politically ambitious and ahead of the curve, while Corbucci embraced a strong pulp sensibility in his ultra violent Django that featured the iconic coffin hauling gunslinger. Later, he showed his political ambitions in his Mexican Revolution trilogy that features Companeros between The Mercenary and What Am I Doing in the Middle of the Revolution?

On a windy night, a black-clad stranger rides into Daugherty City, Texas. He flips a coin to a scruffy drunk who is strapped for the price of a drink. He exposes a crooked dice game in the local saloon, where most of the townsfolk seem to be congregated. Then he departs. In the meantime, down the street, a gang of acrobatic robbers breaks into the bank and heists a safe containing $100,000 in Army payroll money. The getaway crew escapes town before a wounded trooper can raise the alarm, but out on the trail they run into the stranger, Sabata, who picks them off with a tricked-out rifle and recovers the stolen money.
