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 Spaghetti Western That is Much Better Than it is Said to Be.
29 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"God's Gun" AKA "Diamante Lobo" (1976), which is directed by Gianfranco Parolini, who made the hugely successful Spaghetti Westerns: "If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death" (1968) and "Sabata" (1969), is actually a much better film than most people say it to be. Firstly, there is a very interesting performance from Lee Van Cleef, who plays two roles: a priest and a retired gunfighter! The great Jack Palance, while his own voice has been dubbed over, is still an effective villain and Leif Garrett who plays Johhny is quite good for a child actor. The direction is well done, with several neat tricks and the photography is uniformly excellent, especially the final "framing" shot. While it might not be as good as a Spaghetti Western like "Any Gun Can Play" (1968), it is better than "This Man Can't Die" (1967). A highly recommended movie.
