A stranger named Lee Barton rides into the western town of Rainbow Valley where he's mistaken for a former resident named Ward Cluster who was believed killed in the Civil War. Cluster's wife, Rose, is now dead but his young son, Sean -- raised by Indian chief, Gray Bear -- also believes Barton to be his father. Barton soon finds himself in opposition to local boss Tom Cherry who used local Indians to drive off settlers and who then turned against the Indians. Cherry is "sweet" on blonde townswoman Deborah but Deborah loves a drunken man named Ive. Cherry seeks to find $200,000 stashed away by a Mexican general and during the course of his hunt captures and flogs Barton and then kills both Deborah and Ive.

Decent Spaghetti/Paella Western shot in Spain with two ordinary genre stars : Richard Harrison and Fernando Sancho
21 June 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This Italian & Spanish co-production qualifies as an enough-budget, mid-brow western , a so-so level before the great Spaghetti westerns . "$100,000 for Ringo" has a thrilling start when a woman is relentlessly pursued by Indians ; a bit later on , she is murdered by a mysterious killer . The murderer will blame the innocent Indians about the crime . Then , a ¨white men posse¨ attack an Indian tribe , carrying out a brutal slaughter . Meanwhile , a wandering drifter called Ringo (Richard Harrison) arrives in a ranch where he's mistaken for a former resident named Ward Cluster who was believed dead in the Civil War . Cluster's spouse is now dead but his young son , Sean (Loris Loddi) raised by Indian chief , Gray Bear (Rafael Albaicín) , also believes Ringo to be his daddy and the kid plans a future with him . Soon after , Ringo or Lee Barton rides into the western town of Rainbow Valley in which he meets himself in opposition to local mobster , Cherry (Gerard Tichy) and his brother (Guido Lollobrigida or Lee Burton , Gina Lollobrigida's brother) . Ringo joins forces with a bounty hunter (Fernando Sancho) and a sheriff (Luis Induni) attempt to restore peace and order . Cherry seeks to find $200,000 stashed away by a Mexican general (Tomas Torres) and during the course of his chase captures and flogs Ringo .

This stirring tortilla/Ravioli Western packs thrills , shootouts , noisy action , and riding pursuits . Italian-Spanish co-production filmed in Catalunya , full of familiar faces , assaults , exaggerated characters , crossfire , lots of shots and fights . Starring Richard Harrison as a stranger rider , he is pretty nice , he ravages the screen , he jumps, leaps and bounds , hits and runs ; besides , receiving violent punches , whipping and wounds . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between Richard Harrison and Gerard Tichy with some looks that say it all , including an exciting ending . Strong and robust Richard Harrison was a magnificent muscle-man . Harrison played in Hollywood some minor roles as ¨Kronos¨, ¨South Pacific¨ and ¨Master of world . Then , Harrison jumped at the chance when offered the first character in 1961 ,¨The Invincible Gladiator¨ , which was filming in Europe . He wound up settling in Italy for the next two decades . To avoid being penned in too much as a muscle man , he sought characters in routine spaghetti westerns as ¨Texas the Red¨, ¨Gringo¨, ¨Reverendo Colt¨ , ¨Joe Dakota¨ , even the main role from ¨For a fistful of dollars¨ was offered to Richard Harrison , but he turned down and explaining : Maybe my greatest contribution to cinema was not doing Fistful of Dollars, and recommending Clint Eastwood for the part . Support cast is frankly good , thanks to the boastful Fernando Sancho , playing a likable bounty hunter . He played a Mexican outlaw lots of times , as he starred multitude ¨Chorizo¨ or ¨Pipperone¨ Westerns , as the quarrelsome , swanky Mexican bandit , such as : ¨A pistol for Ringo¨, ¨Return of Ringo¨, "Requiem for a Gringo" , "Dakota Joe" , ¨Winchester Bill¨ , "The Man Who Came to Kill" and several others . Other important secondaries are the followings : Gerard Tichy as Tom Cherry who used local Indians to drive off settlers , subsequently turned against the Indians , Eleonora Bianchi as Deborah , a blonde townswoman who loves a drunken man played by Massimo Serato or John Barracuda , Mónica Randall as a beautiful Indian , Francisco Sanz as José , Tomás Torres as Mexican General , Luis Induni as Sheriff , Frank Oliveiras , Cesar Ojinaga .

Being decently photographed by Federico G. Larraya in Eastmancolor , Techniscope , though is necessary a fine remastering because of the film-copy is washed-out . Mostly filmed in atmospheric scenarios on location in Fraga , (Huesca) , similar to Almeria , and a Western village located in ¨Spugles De Llobregat¨ built by producers/directors brothers : Alfonso Balcázar , Francisco Balcázar , Juan Jose Balcazar though this Balcazar family went to bankrupt and had to sell the terrains . It resulted to be the locations where were shot lots of Westerns produced and directed by Catalan people , because Almeria was too far and the ¨Fraga¨ landscapes bear remarkable resemblance . There are many fine technicians , film editing by Teresa Alcocer , nice assistant direction and adequate production design by the usual Juan Albert Soler , the latter creates an acceptable scenario . Climatic and enjoyable musical score , including catching leitmotif , by Bruno Nicolai , usual collaborator to Ennio Morricone , adding a wonderful song : ¨Ringo¨ .

"One Hundred Thousand Dollars for Ringo" was well produced by Alfonso Balcazar productions that financed lots of Westerns . Most of them starred by Richard Harrison , Jorge Martin or George Martin , Luis Davila , Daniel Martin or Robert Woods . The motion picture was regularly directed by Alberto De Martino . He managed to make a fluid and filled with thrills , duels , attacks , and shots , though average . He was an Italian craftsman , working from the 60s in all kind of genres and B movies . As he directed Peplum (Secret seven , Spartan gladiators , Invincible gladiator , Valley of stone men) , Spaghetti Western (Django shoots first , Providence , Charge of seven cavalry) , Warlike (Dirty heroes) , European spy genre (OK Connery , Operation Lady Chaplin) , and Terror (Miami Golem , Tempter , Horror , Holocaust 2000) , among others . Rating : 5.5/10 acceptable and passable , though sometimes embarrassing . If you like Chorizo , Paella , Butifarra or Spaghetti westerns , this one remains lightly watchable .
