Neat Spaghetti Western
Cash-strapped drifters Anthony Steffen and Eduardo Fajardo save the life of a life of a trouble-prone Mexican ex-con with half of a treasure map tattooed across his back. Soon, the three find themselves partnered up with oily con-man Frank Wolff and a crooked sheriff in a game of double and triple-crosses.
Clearly inspired by The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, this is straight-forward and colorful, with lots of twists and great performances by Steffen, Fajardo (who gets to be a good guy in this one), and villain Wolff, whose character seems to corrupt nearly every person he comes in contact with.
Well photographed, this makes full use of some excellent Spanish locations. It's always good to see Italian westerns with a lot of emphasis on outdoor action, with a good portion of the film taking place on the trail.
