Decent and thrilling Spaghetti about a local sheriff unjustly accused of killing who attempts to prove his innocence
5 August 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This is a good S.W. plenty of action , shootouts , thrills and fist-play . Maccarroni Western starred by habitual actors , such as Giuliano Gemma , German Cobos and Teresa Gimpera . It deals with a local Marshall called Gary Ryan (Giuliano Gemma) living in a small town is falsely accused by nasty enemies : Frank Lloyd (Serge Marquand) and the Mayor Gold (Daniele Vargas) , being wrongly convicted for a murder and forced to flee . Gary is relentlessly pursued by henchmen but he gets rid of his contenders one by one and tries to demonstrate his innocence.

Spaghetti Western is filled with action , thrills , horse riding , brawls and crossfire . This is a decent Spaghetti starred by Giuliano Gemma , a hero wrongly accused who escapes to seek revenge on the men who framed him . This Western is a superior outing because it displays thrills , emotion , shoot'em up , brawls , intrigue , riding pursuits and many other things . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shots or stunts every few minutes . The picture is a tale of justice and revenge with an interesting plot , as a sheriff carries out a hard mission to discover a twisted intrigue about forgery and cattle rustlers . Along the way he is detained , imprisoned , beaten , tortured and later on , he flees and seeks vendetta . The basic plot is typical spaghetti western fare , but what makes this movie stand out is its style . Giuliano steals the show as a merciless revenger , executing thespian skills , bounds and leaps , twists and shooting and throughly enjoys himself . Recently deceased Giuliano Gemma is very fine in his ordinary role as a gunfighter who seeks vengeance against his eternal enemies , Serge Marquand and Daniele Vargas , and their hoodlums . Giuliano Gemma , along with Anthony Steffen and Gianni Garco , resulted to be one of the greatest stars of the Spaghetti genre . Gemma in his beginning worked as a stunt-man , practiced many sports in his life, boxing , gymnastics, such as is well proved at the movie . Then the director, Duccio Tessari, gave him the first role as protagonist in the film " The Titani" and the first spaghetti western films where he often worked under the name of Montgomery Wood , playing Western as ¨A pistol for Ringo¨, ¨The return of Ringo¨ and others as ¨Adios Gringo¨, ¨Arizona Colt¨, ¨The price of power¨ , ¨Day of anger¨ and later ¨California¨. However, his first big opportunity came with the important Italian director, Luchino Visconti in ¨El Gatopardo¨ this was followed by important roles in "Angelica" , ¨Tenebre¨ , ¨Young Lions¨ and ¨The master touch¨. Then he played his most significant roles in ¨Il Deserto Dei Tartari¨ and ¨Il Prefetto Di Ferro¨ . While co-starring German Cobos played a lot of Paella/Chorizo or Tortilla Western filmed in Spain such as : ¨Hombre De La Diligencia¨ by Jose Maria Elorrieta¨, ¨Fuerte Perdido¨, ¨Valor De Cobarde¨ by Leon Klimowsky , ¨Secret of Captain O'Hara¨ by Arturo Ruiz Del Castillo , ¨Blood calls to Blood¨ by Luigi Capuano and ¨Reverendo Colt¨ by Klimowsky ; furthermore , he starred several Peplum and thrillers .

In the movie appears usual Western support actors as Spanish people : Teresa Gimpera , Salvador Arriaga , German Cobos , as well as Italian players : Gia Sandri , Nello Pazzafini , Benito Stefanelli , Spartaco Conversi , Umberto Raho , Giovanni Ivan Scratuglia , Andrea Fantasia , Fortunato Arena and Riccardo Pizzuti who is regular in Terence Hill-Spencer films . The musician Gianni Ferrio composes a nice Spaghetti soundtrack , well conducted and splendid leitmotif ; it's full of enjoyable sounds and emotive score , including catching songs . Atmospheric as well as evocative cinematography by Antonio ¨Tony¨ Secchi who also photographed other Westerns , such as : ¨Bullet for the General¨, "One Silver Dollar" and "The Hills Run Red" ; being shot on location in Lazio Rome , and , of course , Almeria, Spain . In addition , filmed in studios : Cinecittà Studios , Cinecittà, Rome, Lazio, Italy . The flick was professionally directed by Giorgo Ferroni , an expert on Peplum . As he directed ¨The war of Troy¨ with Steve Reeves ,¨Hercules against Molock¨ and ¨Il Colosso Di Roma¨ with Gordon Scott . He also directed Western as "Fort Yuma Gold" , "Blood for a Silver Dollar" , Wartime as ¨Battle of El Alamein¨ and Terror in acceptable results as ¨ Mill of the stone woman¨ and "Night of the Devils" .
