Lee Van Cleef,
Jason and Adam are brothers who specialize in jewel heists. Jason is betrayed by Adam, who steals his girlfriend, and has him beaten and left for dead. A female doctor nurses him back to health, and he sets about planning his revenge.
This is a very cheap and rough looking movie, even for a Euro-Western. What makes it worth catching is that it doesn't follow the usual plot of most Spaghetti Westerns, i.e. it doesn't feature the American Civil War or the Mexican Revolution as it's backdrop.
Jim(called Jeremiah in the version I saw) is the only survivor of an attack by Native Americans on his homestead. His entire family are killed, and he grows up to be a hate-filled Indian killer. This changes when he saves an Indian girl from a humiliating 'tar-and-feathering' in the local town. We later find out that it was evil property developers who organised the raid on his homestead and made it look like Indians did it. Jim/Jeremiah takes his revenge.
This has an excellent sub-Morricone guitar driven score, but is ultimately let down by it's cheap look.
And a word of caution; avoid the DVD version that's around at the moment. It claims to be widescreen but is horribly cropped and renders certain scenes nonsensical. 4/10.
