This euro-western has an engaging storyline that involves historical figures, the American Civil War, political intrigue, government agents, and some detective work. If you like "Il Prezzo di Potere" (The Price of Power), you will probably like this movie.
The music score is not one of the great ones, but it is adequate and appropriate for a spaghetti western.
John Ireland is great as the greedy villain who tries to extort money from the North as well as the South by holding the inventor of the machine gun and his prototype weapon for ransom. This is the best performance I've seen from him in a spaghetti western. Robert Woods also does a great job here. He is almost as good in this film as he was in "Black Jack."
Euro-western fans should take notice. See this movie if you can find it!
