Approved | | Romance, Western
A fast Mexican-American gunman kills a few notorious gunfighters and is hired to replace Mesa's dead sheriff but a crooked saloon-keeper wants him on his payroll or out-of-the-way.
Although most people think he was Greek, Anthony Quinn was actually born in Chihuahua, Mexico, and had an opportunity to return to his ethnic heritage as the Mexican gunfighter.
In the beginning when Dave shoots Richey, Dave fires first and hits him . When Richey fires, he holds the gun high, and it can be clearly seen that the shot goes high and astray. Yet, Dave is wounded. The doctor says it's a "scratch." However, given where the wound is it couldn't be a scratch. Dave's body would have had to be turned from Richey, which it wasn't. The bullet would have penetrated the body.
Opening credits list Anthony Quinn as the "MAN FROM DEL RIO".
