The quick-drawing gunman makes short work of the robber, then teams up with an insurance agent to look for the hidden fortune. Unbeknownst to them, the robber had an ace up his sleeve...

During the gunfight at the end, the fuse has been burning for a while and should be dozens of feet away but a distant view from above and behind Cat Stevens (Terence Hill) shows the fuse just starting to burn directly behind him. See more »

Alternate Versions

This film was released in three different versions in Germany. First in 1968 the original theatrical release which had a "Not under 18" rating and ran 95 minutes (ca. 12 minutes were cut). This version was released in 2001 on home video by Screenpower (re-rated "Not under 16"). In the 80s, due to the popularity of the Spencer/Hill comedies, the film was re-released by Tobis in a spaghetti-western-like "comedy version" (this version was re-dubbed and missed about an additional 14 minutes) with a "Not under 12" rating. It was often shown on TV and released on home video by various companies. In 2003 the original uncut version of the film was released, again by Screenpower (also with a "Not under 16" rating).

not bad for a Hill/Spencer flick
16 December 2007 | by spider89119See all my reviews

I've never really appreciated the whole Terence Hill and Bud Spencer phenomenon the way that some people apparently do. I don't think they are any better as a duo than any other two random actors that could have been thrown together at that time, and as far as comedy goes, let's just say they are no Laurel and Hardy. I see no good reason for them ever having been teamed up for more than just one film. In fact, I think they've done better work when they haven't been together, especially in the case of Hill.

One saving grace for this film is that it is not one of their irritating attempts at comedy. It is a serious story with bloody violence, double-crosses, revenge, and gold. And it's told in good spaghetti western fashion. This film keeps the viewer intrigued from beginning to end, and it is accompanied by an interesting music score from Angel Oliver Pina.

The highlight of this movie is the performance of Frank Wolff, as Bill San Antonio. Wolff has appeared in a lot of spaghetti westerns playing all sorts of characters, and is one of the finest supporting actors of the genre. He really outdoes himself in this movie as the cunning, wisecracking, sadistic, backstabbing bandit who fakes his own death to make it easier for him to continue his crimes. San Antonio is one of those funny, over-the-top characters that make these movies so much fun to watch. Frank Wolff is so great in this role that he steals the show completely, and makes this movie way more enjoyable than it would have been otherwise.

Overall, this is a pretty decent spaghetti western that is worth watching for fans of the genre.
