Goofs

The execution of the priest and altar-boy (who married Paco Perez and Manuela Rodriguez at the beginning of the film) is cut from international prints, thus their corpses are shown inexplicably when Juanito is discussing his plans with his henchmen. See more »

Quotes

Johnny Oro: Hey, Sheriff! Looks like you're causing a lot of inconvenience for folks because of your interpretation of the law. Now, look. Aren't you being a little stubborn?
Sheriff Bill Norton: Now, listen to me, and listen close. You're under my protection here, and I'll defend you right down the line. Just as I'll defend my own wife and son. You broke the law, and you'll stay in jail.
Johnny Oro: You're not stubborn, Sheriff... you're crazy.

Spaghetti Westerns -- Hold the Camembert
8 September 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Mark Damon is gold-loving bounty hunter Johnny Ringo. He annoys a fellow whose brother he has killed and much spaghetti-westerning eventuates.

Director Sergio Corbucci worked in a lot of genres, but is best remembered for his horror movies, and for being one of the inventors of the Spaghetti Western. His first movie of the genre, MASSACRE AT GRAND CANYON, beat Leone's A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS into the theaters by three and a half months.

Although the idea that westerns could be shot in Europe may seem groundbreaking, there were many European westerns before this. In the silent era, French westerns were called "Westerns-Camembert". I have seen westerns produced in Britain and Germany in the 1920s and 1930s.

The most interesting features of this movie are the lived-in appearance of cinematic world, with doorways chipped, and Carlo Savina's brass-heavy score.
