Mediocre Chorizo/Spaghetti Western co-produced by Spain/Italy with the ordinary confrontation between Richard Harrison and Fernando Sancho
9 May 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Very average Spaghetti/Paella/Butifarra Western shot in Spain with two usual genre stars : Richard Harrison and Fernando Sancho as well as customary secondaries as Bruno Corazzari , Gustavo Re and Antonio Molino Rojo . Amusing Macarroni/Tortilla or Gazpacho Westen with plenty of action , crossfire , brawls , double-crosses , twists and loads of shots . The movie is running out of ideas a bit ; nevertheless , it is still good enough to be fun . It stars Robert Walton (Richard Harrison) , as an ex-gunfighter who was Texas' fastest gun , and , nowadays , runs a Wells Fargo station along with his wife (Erika Blanc) and son . Meanwhile , an outlaw called Anthony Stevens (Bruno Corazzari) is wanted for murder , reward : 2000 dollars , dead or alive . When he goes into the saloon and there takes place some brawls , the sheriff detains Stevens . Later on , the nasty but sympathetic bandit Ramón Sartana (Fernando Sancho) along with his henchmen (Gustavo Re , Indio Gonzalez , Antonio Molino) assault a Wells Fargo stagecoach , take the passengers and go to the Wells Fargo station where lives Robert Walton , but the cutthroats are the wrong place at the right time . Then , the villainous boss and hoodlums harass , mistreat them , and attempt to rape women . Robert has hidden his weapons but when the assaulting begin killing passengers he takes his guns and seeks vengeance and justice . In the process , Anthony Stevens (Bruno Corazzari) is imprisoned but in jail tries to getaway . Later on , Stevens is freed by a corrupt jury and after that , he decides to team up with Sartana and he arrives in Walton's property , and things go wrong .

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 , gun-down , lots of shots , fights and with some looks that say it all , including an exciting ending . Starring Richard Harrison who stands out his strong , piercing eyes and striking look , featuring as a man out for vendetta . Harrison is passable as a retired gunfighter who vows revenge to kill the attackers , as he ravages the screen , he jumps , leaps and bounds , hits and runs ; besides , receiving violent punches and wounds . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between the tough ex-pistolero Richard Harrison and Fernando Sancho as the notorious killer called ¨Sartana¨, though this Sartana has nothing to do with the hero starred by Gianni Garco . Rchard 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 but murderous bandit , as usual . 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 . Here appear important secondaries from Spaghetti/Tortilla or Paella Western , these are the followings : Bruno Corazzari , Antonio Molino Rojo or Red Mills , Gustavo Re , Cesar Ojinaga , Gaspar 'Indio' González , among others .

This violent tale being decent but poorly photographed by Luciano Trasatti in Eastmancolor . Mostly filmed in atmospheric though poor scenarios on location in Fraga , (Huesca) , similar to Almeria , and a Western village located in ¨Splugles De Llobregat¨ built by Balcazar Productions and in Matadapera , Barcelona , Catalonia . Atmospheric musical score by Enrique Escobar , Iquino's ordinary . The film was produced in low budget by Ignacio F. Iquino (IFI) 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 Juan Bosch . He managed to make a fluid and filled with thrills , duels , attacks , and shots , though average and in low budget . Juan was a Spanish craftsman , writing and directing ; working from the 60s in all kind of genres and B movies such as Spaghetti Western : ¨Dallas¨, "God in Heaven.. Arizona on Earth¨, "And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave" , "My Horse, My Gun, Your Widow" ,¨Ciudad Maldita¨, ¨They Believed He Was No Saint" , "Stagecoach of the Condemned" ; Giallo : "The Killer Wore Gloves" , "On the Edge" or "The Killer with a Thousand Eyes" ; Comedy : Mauricio Mon Amour¨, ¨40 Años Sin Sexo¨, ¨Caray Con Divorcio¨ , ¨Rolls Para Hipolito¨ and Terror : ¨Exorcismo¨, ¨Secta Siniestra¨ . Rating : 4.5/10 , mediocre but entertaining , though sometimes embarrassing . If you like Chorizo , Paella , Tortilla , Butifarra or Spaghetti westerns , this one remains lightly watchable .
