| Rather good latter day spaghetti western with mystery undertones
The action opens in a hard labour camp, a prisoner is saved by a fellow inmate from a violent guard and the latter dies after being flogged for this action. And so after being released, the other man travels to the home town of his deceased saviour in order to pay off a debt for the dead man.

Colt in the Hand of the Devil was for me one of the better latter day spaghetti westerns I have seen. Its story involving revenge and its stock list of characters are all fairly run of the mill. But what set it apart was the mystery element to the story where we progressively discover just what secret from the past that our loner hero is trying to put right. I thought that this almost amateur sleuth aspect helped keep things more interesting than they might otherwise have been. The result was a pretty entertaining Italian western.
