Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced by Italy/Spain with ordinary actors as Wyler , San Martin and the great Fernando Sancho
18 September 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This Tortilla/Spaghetti Western is filled with action , thrills , horse riding , brawls and crossfire . This is a decent/passable Spaghetti starred by acceptable actors from Spaghetti ; being full of fury , action , gun-play and portentous duels . It deals with a reformed gunfighter is on his way to a sleepy town in the hope of peace but problems ensue . The gunslinger named Billy Walsh (Richard Wyler) rides into a little town and meets an old owner of a gold mine called Sam (Espartaco Conversi) . He hasn't come looking for trouble , but trouble finds him around every corner . The strange and weary Pistolero nicknamed Winchester Bill comes to defense Sam and his daughter Susan (Eleonora Bianchi) in their struggle to defend the golden mine against a nasty owner named Ted Shaw (Conrado San Martín) . As the gunfighter fighting to stifle the conflicts between a family and powerful baron land who hires a hired hand , the bandit nicknamed El Bicho (Fernando Sancho) and being supported by a corrupt sheriff (Luis Induni) . As a drifter comes to a farm in the Old West just in time to reckoning gunslingers and owners . Winchester is a mysterious gunfighter who comes to the aid of countrymen from a greedy wealthy owner trying to encroach on their land . As the gunfighter seeks vengeance against his heinous enemies .

Middling Italian-Spanish Western with habitual actors , customary scenarios and realized in Chorizo/Spaghetti style. The film displays thrills , noisy action , violence , shootouts , final twist and being enough entertaining . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as it is full of fury , sadism : being buried up people to their necks , bloodbaths , and close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . This is an average Spaghetti Western with some moments genuinely entertaining if you can avoid thinking too much . Spectacular final takes place on the downtown when protagonists contend face to face and surrounded by nasties . Thrilling screenplay by Maria Carmen Martínez Roman who wrote numerous westerns such as Sheriff Won't Shoot , Réquiem for a Gringo , Dynamite Joe , In a Colt's Shadow , Fury of Johnny Kid and the classic Django kill . Richard Wyler is passable as an tough gunman who takes law on his own arms , executing thespian skills , bounds and leaps and shooting and throughly enjoys himself . Wyler was born in Essex, England and he starred some Spaghetti , as he acted in various Western as Bounty killer , Two guns and a coward , Winchester Bill , and Euro-Spy genre as Dick Smart 2007 ,Coplan . While Conrado San Martin played in ¨Winchester Bill¨, ¨Long Days of Vengeance¨ , ¨In a colt's shadow¨ and various Westerns directed by his friend Sergio Leone ; furthermore , he starred several Peplum and thrillers . However , being Fernando Sancho who steals the show as a merciless Mexican role , he holds mocking laughs in several scenes , as usual . In the movie appears customary Western support actors as Spanish people : Rafael Hernandez , Rufino Ingles , Luis Induni ; as Italian players such as Espartco Conversi , Franco Pesce , Massimo Righi . Atmospheric as well as evocative cinematography and correctly photographed by Alfonso Nieva , though is necessary a right remastering ; being filmed on location in Colmenar Viejo , La Pedriza , where were filmed a lot of Spaghetti/Chorizo Westerns along with Almeria .

The motion picture was professionally directed by Alfonso Brescia , though contains some flaws and gaps . Al Bradley was a craftsman who directed all kind of genres . Alfonso Brescia or Al Bradley was born in Rome , 1930, and died in 2001 . He was a director and writer, known for directing Westerns as : Days of Violence , White Fang and the Hunter , Killer Caliber and The Colt Is My Law . Alfonso began directing muscle-men epics as The Conqueror of Atlantis , The magnificent gladiator , La Rivolta dei Pretoriani . He also directed Sci-Fi and Sword and witchery genre as Iron Warrior , Sette Uomini D'oro Nello Spazio , The war of the robots ; Adventure as Zanna Bianca , Amazons against Supermen and Wartime films such as Objetivo Rommel , Misiones Ardientes and Hell in Normandy .
