| Not bad, but I've seen better
I must admit, this was not the worst Terence Hill film I've ever seen but certainly one of his worst ones. The jokes are not too frequent and there is too much made of the romance. For me the highlights of his career are still the movies he made with Bud Spencer. Some of those are really hilarious. On his own I find Terence Hill not to be too entertaining. His best solo works is Renegade.

6 out of 10

P.s.: I watched the german dubbed version (as I always do) for these films are hard to come by, plus I find the voices and the dialogues much better in German than I do in Italian

Did You Know?


It's a coincidence, of course, as this was made first, but the governor enters his office from behind the window drapes in the exact same way Mel Brooks does in "Blazing Saddles" (and it seems unlikely that Mel would have seen this picture, given its very limited U.S. release).


Sir Thomas Fitzpatrick Phillip Moore: Stop dreaming. This is 1880. You can't evade progress forever. The West is... Well, the West is finished.
Bull Schmidt: Son, as long as we can see a sunset, there'll be a West. I guess we gonna' have to follow that sunset.


When Tom first tries shooting a gun (inside the cabin), the gun alternates from being in his right hand (in frontal shots) to being his left hand (in back shots).
