Unusual, but entertaining, blend of the Italian western and giallo
12 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

Gianni Garko stars in a slight variation of his Sartana persona (so slight it's almost non-existent), here named Silver. Or MISTER Silver if you are the unlucky type.

When a the local saloon is robbed, two citizens killed in the process and two of the three gunmen killed by the third partner, the town unanimously decides to pin the rap on the local black sheep (Klaus Kinski in another great performance). The town lawyer will have none of this injustice no matter how much of an SOB the guy is and even the saloon owner who loathes the sight of the man decides to put up money for Silver to find the real killer.

While Silver pieces together clues, the body count piles up and the clock ticks down to the day when the scapegoat will be hanged.

There's plenty more to the plot with murdered prostitutes, illicit diaries, mad judges, crazy townfolk, hooded killers and such, but I can't go spoiling it, now can I?

Unfortunately fans of giallos tend not to be interested in Spaghetti Westerns and the other way around as well. It's too bad, as this may not be any great milestone in either genre it is still very entertaining for what it is and of course you have the always entertaining Garko, Kinski and the ubiquitous Alan Collins to keep things lively on the acting front.

Well worth checking out for the non-purists.
