Sartana weaves his way around those out to snatch a property with gold
14 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gianni Garko is always fun as Sartana, the typically cool-headed and skilled black-robed stranger in town. He sizes everyone and everything up and hardly ever misses a beat.

This one starts out with killers ruthlessly wiping out some gold miners and setting fire to their cabin. But when Sartana appears, these four killers are goners to his rifle. Next day, a Chinese man appears at the site. He's the henchman of the Chinese owner (Peng) of the nearby Indian Creek's gambling hall. Sartana's a card sharp himself, using his sharp-edged cards for all sorts of unexpected matters. Sartana goes right to the gambling hall where he uses a letter of credit. Is it fake or real? There is some question. He loses a bundle to Peng at 5 card stud. Peng wants the property, but he's not alone. There is also the local bigwig businessman-fraudster and he's using the craven sheriff, who also confides in the red-haired saloon owner. She tries to wheedle her way around Sartana but he goes for the niece of the now-dead property owner.

The smooth-talking businessman (Blackie) is not above kidnapping the niece until she signs a deed to him. Sartana has that to deal with, not to mention paid killers after him. Along the way, Sartana is beset with the Pigott brothers after him to avenge their brother's death. Sartana at one point tells the sheriff that the Pigott brother, a card cheat, is leaving town in the morning. Looking at Pigott, the sheriff inquires if he has decided it's best to leave, but Sartana answers "I decided". Beautiful. It's moments like these that make the movie. The confrontations between Sartana and the bad guys, including Blackie and Peng, are well-handled.

It's a fairly dizzying web of intrigue.

The music score is very good, if minimal. We hear the catchy theme mainly at the start, the end and in exterior horse-riding scenes.

A solid spaghetti western and a solid Sartana entry.
