Entertaining Western
2 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you like "spaghetti" westerns, you may enjoy this yarn of the Old Wild West. Hardy Kruger turns in a amusing performance and my favorite, Stephen Boyd, seems to be having a pretty good time in his cowboy role as well. This is a German film and one of Stephen Boyd's last, released just before his premature passing in 1977 just as he was making a return to films as a supporting character actor rather than the leading man roles he played in the 60's films. He was a well-seasoned, solid actor and it's unfortunate for us that he didn't have the chance to make more films like this one.
