Ordinary but entertaining Paella/Spaghetti Western co-produced by Spain/Italy and starred by three usual stars : Lee Lawrence , Camardiel and Braña
This is an average Tortilla/S.W. plenty of action , shootouts , thrills and abounds fist-play . Action-filled Spaghetti , littered with killings , street shootouts , brawls , revenge , romance , cross and doublé-crosses .

Moving Spaghetti Western is filled with unstopped action , thrills , horse riding , brawls and crossfire . The movie is running out of ideas a bit ; nevertheless , it is still good enough to be fun . This stirring tortilla/Ravioli Western packs thrills , shootouts , noisy action , and riding pursuits . Italian-Spanish co-production filmed in Catalunya , full of familiar faces , assaults , exaggerated characters , gun-down , lots of shots and fights . Starring Peter Lee as a bounty hunter who comes back home and he vows vendetta when finds his father has been killed by a greedy landowner , he then will revenge himself and set the townsfolk free from the nasty villain . Peter is pretty nice , he ravages the screen , he jumps, leaps and bounds , hits and runs ; besides , receiving violent punches , whipping and wounds . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between Peter Lee and Carlo Gaddi as the notorious hired hand called ¨Towers¨ with some looks that say it all , including an exciting ending . Here ¨Garringo¨ performed by Peter Lawrence is another hero of second class in the S.W. genre as ¨Sartana¨ (Gianni Garco) or ¨Cuchillo¨ (Tomas Milian) or ¨Ringo¨ (Giuliano Gemma) or ¨Holy Ghost¨ . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as is full of fury , sadism , bloodbaths , and close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . Early deceased Peter Lee Lawrence gives a subdued performance but adequate to his character , a two-fisted but upright gun-shooter . The notorious Spaghetti/Paella actor , Peter Lee Lawrence is good in his usual brave role , here playing a tough bounty hunter become into a terrible avenger when his father is wrongly murdered . His role is well performed , here he plays a relentless gunslinger using mercilessly his gun , a violent young who seeks justice , an usual plot in Spaghetti western . Blond German youth Peter Lee Lawrence, who made his uncredited debut in Sergio Leone "For A Few Dollars More" (1965), was the hero in many Spaghetti Westerns . His short cinematographic history can be enclosed in nine years of Italo-Spain co-productions such as "More Dollars for the MacGregors" , ¨Winchester justice¨,"Pistol for a Hundred Coffins", ¨The man who killed Billy the Kid¨ , "Four Gunmen of the Holy Trinity" ¨Fury of Johnny Kid¨ and several others . Here appear important secondaries from Spaghetti/Tortilla or Paella Western , these are the followings : Frank Braña , Maria Pia Conte as Catherine , a beautiful townswoman who loves Garringo , Luis Induni as Sheriff , the likable dentist Gustavo Re , Gaspar 'Indio' González , Franco Pesce , Luis Ciges , Juan Torres , among others .
Being regularly photographed by Giancarlo Ferrando in Eastmancolor . Mostly filmed in atmospheric though poor scenarios on location in Cataluña , Fraga , (Huesca) , similar to Almeria , and a Western village located in ¨Spugles De Llobregat¨ built by Balcazar Productions and in Rome, Lazio, Italy , as well as interiors filmed in Elios studios . Enjoyable musical score by Bruno Nicalai , usual collaborator to Morricone . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Juan Bosch . He managed to make a fluid and filled with thrills , duels , attacks , and shots , though average and in low budget . Juan was a Spanish craftsman , writing and directing ; working from the 60s in all kind of genres and B movies such as Spaghetti Western : ¨Dallas¨, "God in Heaven, Arizona on Earth¨, "And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave" , "My Horse, My Gun, Your Widow" ,¨Ciudad Maldita¨, ¨They Believed He Was No Saint" , "Stagecoach of the Condemned" ; Giallo : "The Killer Wore Gloves" , "On the Edge" or "The Killer with a Thousand Eyes" ; Comedy : Mauricio Mon Amour¨, ¨40 Años Sin Sexo¨, ¨Caray Con Divorcio¨ , ¨Rolls Para Hipolito¨ and Terror : ¨Exorcismo¨, ¨Secta Siniestra¨ . Rating : 4.5/10 , mediocre but entertaining , though sometimes embarrassing . If you like Chorizo , Paella , Tortilla , Butifarra or Spaghetti westerns , this one remains lightly watchable .
