Jonathan Corbett is a gunman so brave to have eliminated all the bandits of Texas. For this he is proposed for the candidacy to the Senate of the United States. In exchange he has only to support the construction of one railway line. Only after he accepts does he come to know that the Mexican Cuchillo has raped and killed a 12 year old girl. Corbett leaves on a long manhunt during which he gets to know his adversary better and discovers a variation on the crime for which the accused Cuchillo may not be as guilty as he first thought. Written by
Baldinotto da Pistoia, translated by Philip-12
This is one of Quentin Tarentino's favorite spaghetti westerns. See more »
[after discovering that he has been tricked by Cuchillo into thinking he was bit by a snake]
If you don't kill me right now... it'll be the last mistake you ever make.
But to kill you is a big mistake. If I kill you, they'll just send another man after me who's much smarter, MUCH.

Sergio Sollima's gripping and operatic spaghetti western is one of the greatest in this under-rated sub genre.Lee Van Cleef was never better than here as Jonathan Corbett,a legendary gunfighter and would be congressman who is hired to track down a child murderer.His pursuit of this man played with panache by Thomas Milian is plagued by doubts that maybe this is not the man he should be chasing;these doubts are well realised and lead to the final big gundown that gives the film its title.The music by Ennio Morricone is rousing and memorable and gives this exciting film its own identity.This is a tale of rugged men who live by rugged codes in a rugged country.Get rugged and join Van Cleef in his relentless mission.
