Storyline

Expert conman Joe Thanks teams up with half-breed Bill and naive Lucy to steal $300,000 from the Indian-hating Major Cabot. Their elaborate plan is full of disguises, double-crosses, and chases, but Joe always seems to know what he's doing. Written by lonamer

Alternate Versions

Most DVD versions (including Paramount's German release) are missing the last shot of the opening scene directly before the credits as well as the final shot of Monument Valley. The credits roll over the shot of Monument Valley in the uncut version whereas the cut version shows the credits over a black screen. The Paramount DVD does however include a reference to a threesome that most other versions are missing. See more »

Spoofy
22 August 2012 | by retroponySee all my reviews

This Terence Hill film is quite strange!Supposed to be a sequel to My Name Is Nobody,it's a spoof on the old west!Not very family friendly,it has it's good parts!Terence Hill really makes the movie.It would have been better if his partner Bud Spencer starred with him.The first scene is directed by the great Sergio Leone.What's wrong with it is not the plot(a great plot),but the supporting cast,and how it doesn't make much of an impact,like My Name Is Nobody did so well.Great music from Ennio Morricone,though not very western sounding.In the end,Sergio Leone,was not impressed and took his name off the film and never did another western!
