Peter Lee Lawrence seeks revenge for his parents' murders and ends up protecting Galveston from bank robbery
29 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's shortly after 1865 and Galveston is a typical tiny western town. Peter Lee Lawrence finds his way there in pursuit of a gang that murdered his parents. He's already killed three of them and now he's tracked down the fourth, Piero Lulli. Lulli leads a large gang planning to rob a large payroll when it arrives, so Lawrence has to bide his time. He winds up allying with a gunslinging preacher, John Ireland.

Before long, there's double crossing and triple crossing going on. There are plots, and these make the story interesting.

The picture maintains tension, has decent Morricone-like music, and introduces quirkiness in its characters too.

The overall result is a spaghetti western that's well down in the pack, as there were hundreds made; but it still provides decent entertainment if one is not too demanding. For a man who is not very big, Lawrence projects his steely determination very well in his eyes and carriage. One might think of Audie Murphy. John Ireland is a strong screen attraction and has a substantial role. Lulli's part is not as fleshed out as it might have been, but he handles what there is well. The script includes a weird side issue of the town housing some lunatics who escape and go on a rampage. Saloon girls are kept to a minimum in this one but are not entirely absent. There is a quirky old man who is the funeral director.

The film looks good in its widescreen print. Scenery is quite good and the camera takes it in nicely. I always enjoy the western landscapes in these movies.
