Scott infiltrates in the cove of the outlaw El Condor, who's spreading fear through the Mojave region, attacking the convoys of gold searchers reaching toward California. With the Help of Maya and some poor Mexicans, oppressed by the bandit, Scott will be able to call for the cavalry intervention and defeat the whole band. Umpteenth western with no budget and a story which try to gain some life, bringing to the usual and boring commonplaces of the genre, the ones of the crime thriller. Bergonzelli (Jim il primo, 1964) is able in someways to come up with a dignified movie in spite of his extremely poor aspect. Which doesn't really mean it scored the same in absolute terms. The unknown star, monolithic and monotonous, will disappear from sight; but the attendances of a solid character actor like George Wang (Buon funerale, amigos!... Paga Sartana, 1971 by Giuliano Carnimeo) in the antagonist role, and a couple of actresses – Marisa Solinas (Blindman, 1971 by Ferdinando Baldi) e Lucretia Love (Vaya con dios gringo, 1966 by Eduardo Mulargia) – with good professionalism, prevent the shipwreck of the whole project.
