Continuity: 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!See more »

Kosher cowboys, 7 March 2004
Author: Poison-River from Stirling, Scotland

I don't suppose many Westerns were made in Israel, but this seems to be the most famous. It looks like they've gone for the 'Spaghetti Western' look rather than the conventional and so should appeal to those who like those movies. Well....if they can get past the terrible direction, wonky camera-work, and Leif Garrett's acting.

Van Cleef plays a preacher(looking like Satan) who is gunned down in cold blood by Palance's vicious gang. Garrett, who witnesses the event is struck dumb and heads off to Mexico to find Van Cleef's twin brother, a top gunman who vowed to his brother he would never kill with a gun again. Van Cleef heads back to avenge his brother's death, but tries to do so in a manner that doesn't involve shooting them all.

There's clearly a good Western here, but it's lost beneath the ineptitude of the film makers. That said, Van Cleef's twin performance is excellent, and Palance hams(pun not intended) it up like only he can. 5/10
