Chino Valdez is a loner horse breeder living in the old west. Partly a loner by choice, and partly because, being a 'half-breed', he finds himself unwelcome almost everywhere he goes. One day, a young runaway named Jimmy shows up at his door looking for work and a roof over his head. Reluctantly, Chino agrees to take him in and teach him the art of raising, breaking and breeding horses, until the pair finally begin to accept each other. Written by

In the saloon, Chino puts the money on the counter, picks up the drink bottle and goes out. Then the bartender, holding some food in his right hand, takes the money his left and puts it inside his trouser pocket. After he greets the men who come in, the bartender puts his foot on the shelf. Next shot, when Chino passes by him, he is still eating and putting the money inside his shirt pocket. See more »

Bronson struggles against enemies under direction of John Sturges
The film concerns upon a mestizo, he's a horse breeder rancher who fights to maintain his way of life facing off foes. The half-Indian man lives solitary until the arriving of a young(Vincent Van Patten).The movie follows the Bronson's adventures and his imposing black stallion that represents the freedom what the white men impede him to enjoy. Meanwhile he has a romance , as he falls in love with the sister(Jill Ireland) of a rich proprietary(Marcel Bozzuffi)who doesn't approve the relation taking the subsequent vengeance.
It's a spaghetti western shot in Almeria(Spain), but is a little bit boring and slow moving although there are some of action, shootouts and emotion. Interesting storyline though monotonous and tiring by Clair Huffaker, he's a notorious screenwriter who wrote several western. There's a brief exploring about Native American Indians and a dream sequences that tend to undermine the easy action . As always, Charles Bronson plays a tough and silent man of lame manner and Jill Ireland(Bronson's wife) is enjoyable and enticing. Spectacular outdoors reflected by cameraman Armando Nannuzzi but film-copy is a little worn-out. Music by Guido and Maurizio de Angelis is effective,they are authors of numerous spaghetti western scores. Weak direction by John Sturges,in spite of the making anteriors classics as ¨Gunfight OK Corral¨,Last train from Gun Hill and ¨The magnificent seven¨.The motion picture is a Charles Bronson vehicle along with his wife, Jill Ireland, both sadly deceased . Rating : Acceptable and passable.
