Goofs

In the opening scene, when the Clayton gang rides into Crane City to rob the bank, there's a barn to the right of the bank with the sign 'JC McCormick, Blacksmithing, Wagon Repairing' with a large wagon wheel in the center. Later in the movie, when Lewis describes his past to young Johnny, there's a flashback scene to Abilene. Outside the Abilene Gambling Hall, right across the street, there's a barn with the same sign!

A below average Spaghetti Western with double performance by Lee Van Cleef
28 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

A preacher ( Lee Van Cleef) is gunned down by a cutthroat band ( leading Jack Palance ) . The son (Leif Garret) of a Saloon girl ( Sybil Danning ) is looking for the priest's brother , an ex-gunfighter ( again Van Cleef ) . The gunman seeks vengeance on the evil men who murdered him . Lee Van Cleef is better in the two first films from ¨Sabata¨ trilogy directed by Frank Kramer or Gianfranco Parolini , the third is starred by Yul Brynner ) than here . These movies are enjoyable ,full of gadgets , imagination, with some budget and produced by Alberto Grimaldi ( successful producer of Leone's Dollars trilogy ) , here the producers are Menahem Golan and Yoran Globus ( Cannon Productions ) but in short budget.

The picture displays action , gun-play, showdown , and drama but badly narrated , besides with minimum budget and wasted casting . The movie has an awful cinematography and disappointing musical score . Jack Palance ( recently deceased ) as the leader band is excessive and exaggerated , as usual, he plays a megalomaniac nasty in an overdone playing . There appears Cody Palance , Jack Palance's son ( he has another daughter actress named Holly Palance too ) unhappily he early died . Richard Boone is underestimated in a minor role in spite of have a long career in classic Western . The singer Leif Garret as a dumb adolescent is mediocre , he played with Lee Van Cleef another spaghetti Western of similar style : ¨Kid vengeance¨ , being his maxim feat his acting as secondary in ¨ Outsiders ¨(Coppola) , later his career utterly failed . The motion picture is appalling directed by Gianfranco Parolini who used the pseudonym of Frank Kramer . Rating : Frustating , far fetching and uninspired Western .
