Out of all the spaghetti westerns I've seen (and there are probably three dozen of them, so far), this would easily rank among the top five, and for several reasons: 1. The story is engaging, action-packed, and well written, with lots of twists and turns. This is a spaghetti western with a mystery, and I like that.
2. The acting is exceptional, all around. The bad guys play their parts so well that you can't wait for them to "get theirs". Especially good is Luciana Paluzzi, Peter Martell, Pilar Velazquez, and Leonard Mann. Martell is so good that he often upstages them all.
3. The photography, costumes, sets, and music really add to the film. In short, if you like spaghetti westerns, you'll like this one.
