Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Ranger Tex Willer (Giuliano Gemma) and his buddy Kit Carson (William Berger) are searching for 300 lost guns, a transport for the army. Mexican bandits are suspected first, but soon clues are found that a mysterious Indian cult is behind all this. But since the Indians have a dangerous weapon, a poison which turns people into stone, Willer and Carson must be very careful on their voyage...
From the hands of Duccio Tessari, we get a western movie shot at the traditional spaghetti western locations near Almeria/Spain, with a slight horror/fantasy touch (and based on a popular comic strip), but nevertheless quality work in a traditional way, not least due to experienced actors such as Gemma, Berger and Aldo Sambrell. Peter Berling ("Aguirre", "Name of the Rose") has a special guest appearance. Produced by RAI Television, a sequel or even series was an option if this had been a hit, but apparently it wasn't and remained the last western for Tessari and Gemma, 20 years after their classic "A Pistol For Ringo".
