Sartana, bounty hunter and gunfighter, witnesses the robbery of a shipment of gold. He finds his way into town where he meets with a lot of suspicious stares from the locals. He also meets with Samuel Spencer, who seems to own the company in this company town. The gold shipments are being stolen, so Spencer agrees to hire Sartana to protect the next gold shipment. Numerous dull-witted villains make attempts on Sartana's life, but he survives. Eventually, Sartana's nemesis Sabbath (he of the white coat and parasol) rides into town. With a showdown inevitable, Sartana and Sabbath square off to settle the score. Written by

I'd like to get a room.
I oughta warn you. The beds are full of bedbugs and uncomfortable, too. We ain't got roulette, there's no floorshow, and there's no girls. Our main activity is keeping out of the graveyard.

George Hilton as Sartana meets Sabata and goes for the gold
"I am Sartana, trade your guns for a coffin" is a thoroughly enjoyable spaghetti western. I wonder how any movie fan cannot get their minds off their troubles by watching this movie, or almost any spaghetti western.
Not knowing the plot or what to expect in advance is half the fun. The characters are so ambiguous, shifty, and willing to make new alliances that you can't hardly tell the good guys from the bad guys sometimes. You distrust them all and wonder what they'll come up with next.
Sartana is still a cool character, dressed in black with a cape, riding a dirty white horse. He still has an ace up his sleeve in any situation.
The plot twists in this one took me entirely by surprise.
This western brings in a character named Sabata, who bears no resemblance to the Sabata of Lee Van Cleef, but who is still interesting as strong competition to Sartana in gun skill.
Great fun with lots of novel gunplay.
