This movie has 3 former HERCULES stars in it. Gordon Mitchell, Kirk Morris and Alan Steel all in the same movie. Kirk Morris is the lead who carries the story, about bloody revenge for the killing of his parents. Gordon Mitchell is a gambler who cheats at cards and gets killed by Morris. (There were 5 aces in the deck). Alan Steel is effective as the Mexican bandit leader who bungles every bank heist job. There are lots of female leads to enjoy. There is a rather explicit whipping of a woman, at least for 1968 standards. KM gets shot and falls into a lake but somehow manages to swim to the surface in an "artsy" looking bizarre sequence. When he gets to the road, director Amerigo Anton shows KM in pain and silently crying out as the sun at his back highlights his anguish. (It is almost like he DID DROWN and came back to life). (This scene is quit striking). He then convinces the Sheriff (almost begs him), to hire him as a deputy and then starts killing everyone who gets in his way. I always though KM looked like a "young" Elvis Presley. After the shooting stops, KM rides off leaving the bag of money he tried so hard to protect throughout the movie.
