A cavalry officer is framed for a killing and then goes on pursuit for the real culprits, in doing so he becomes the feared outlaw known as the Rattler Kid.
This spaghetti western was directed by the Argentinean Leon Klimovsky who made most of his films in Spain, including the atmospheric horror Vampire's Night Orgy (1973) and the effective giallo A Dragonfly for Each Corpse (1975). He was one of the rare non-Italians to direct a spaghetti western and with Rattler Kid he produced a pretty solid, if unspectacular, effort. Its plot is standard stuff really and the characters are very stock – we have a taciturn hero played by Richard Wyler, a taciturn sheriff played by Brad Harris and the beautiful Femi Benussi in a token woman role. I have to say that despite its routine nature I did actually enjoy this one though and found it involving enough. Klimovsky was a reliable director and he manages to hold things together here well enough. Needless to say, most spaghetti western fans should quite enjoy this one I reckon.
