Inferior Paella Western in short budget with unknown actors and poor direction
Below average chorizo western dealing with a stranger , Charles Quiney, who arrives in Tombstone town where time ago the local farmers sold their land to railway. As the purchase of farms that occupy land in which the railway is going to run causes a lot of troubles . Nowadays, Tombstone is a crossroad , and the stranger is interested in ranch 3 Cruces, and its owner called Ralston . The mysterious stranger asks for the ranch's owner to a saloon girl and singer, Claudia Gravy,. Later on, he is being hitting and punched by some hoodlums. A bit later on, there appears Ralston, Luis Induni, and things go wrong .
This is a paella western with thriills, action, fights and shootouts. Badly directed by Jose Maria Zabalza , he is a sort of Spanish Ed Wood, similarly to Italian Demofilo Fidani or Miles Deem . This is a Spanish made Western that came to the big screen when the top time of the genre was falling . It stars a tarnished actor , Charles Quiney, who played subpar adventure , terror, warlike and western movies such as Rebellion Buccaneers, El Zorro caballero de justicia, Tiger Khiber, Zorro Monterrey , Ivanna, Orgia muertos ,Comando al infierno, Consigna matar comandante en jefe . Costars the beautiul Claudia Gravy who starred various Westerns and adventure films such as Matalo, John il Bastard, Hombe Rio malo, Tigres de Mompracen , El perro and Utimo dia guerra. So-so support cast with some familiar faces from Spaghetti and Paella wedtern as Jose Truchado , Luis Induni , Guillermo Mendez and Jose Marco.

The motion picture was lousily directed by Jose Maria Zabalza. His films debuts were two acceptable films : Tambien hay cielo sobre el mar and Entierro de un funcionario en primavera.
