Storyline

Not your typical Italian western. Outlaw makes good by rescuing raped and beaten dancehall girl who eventually falls for him. Sexually deviated murdering bankers widow "Sybil" adds some spics. The scenes of insane church ladies tar and feathering the dance hall girls can not be described. The director attempts to push some Giallo tropes in the movie and it works. Should be watched for the experience. Written by John mccormick

Bill and the black widow
24 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Sybille, the honorable wife of a banker, has her husband murdered and blames saloon girl Shanda for the deed, thus Shanda gets almost killed by three rogues, but her life is saved by Will Hunter. Will goes to town in the disguise of a professional gambler, Bill Abilene, to investigate the murder case, find the three rogues and avenge the abuse of Shanda.

This is a rather unusual Italian western. Talkative, with lots of women, most scenes shot indoors at the studio, it doesn't have the typical atmosphere, if you know what I mean: silent stranger riding across the desert and so on. It is probably telling a lot that the director didn't shoot much else in the western area except a Zorro movie.

Edwige Fenech's name is big on the DVD cover because she became a star later, but she is only no.3 among the female cast. Slovenian actress Spela Rozin plays the part of Shanda, providing red hair and blue eyes with great effect, and then there is Sybille, the black widow, played by Daniela Surina as a temptress without remorse. Not a great movie, but an interesting one, off the beaten path.
