In order to get his hands on his father's inheritance and pay all his debts, Don Peppino must see his son Gianluca married and produce an heir within a year. Problem is everybody suspects the boy of playing for the other team.
KILL THE POKER PLAYER is an interesting mix of spaghetti western and mystery elements. An insurance investigator named Pinkerton from Lloyds of London (!) arrives in a small western town to solve a bank robbery. The Sheriff, the Saloon Owner,a Local Rancher, and a Very Strange Doctor top his list of suspects. All he has to do is stay alive long enough to solve the mystery!
Entertaining film that will appeal mainly to spaghetti western aficionados. It's less than stellar special effects give away it's low budget, and there are some rather hard to believe moments scattered around the movie, but overall, I found it entertaining. It certainly had some interesting ideas and was made with enthusiasm!
