The fact that Cameron Mitchell is in this movie should give you a warning as to what is to come. If not, let me put it bluntly - this is a TERRIBLE western! Though made in the same year as "A Fistful Of Dollars", this probably came first - if the makers of this movie had seen that movie, they probably would have given their plans a major overhaul. As it is, this movie seems to be trying to capture the feel and style of American westerns made in the '50s, but totally botches it. It has a sterile feeling to it, with scenes playing like loose dress rehearsals instead of having any kind of strong feeling. Most of the movie is just boring talk, and while the few action scenes have a few unintended chuckles (like a woman being molested protesting blandly due to the rotten dubbing), they are at best dull and mechanical. Even the music score, which it typically great in a Euro western like this, is unmemorable!
