A real time waster
Dallas and his buddy Kelly compete for a ranch - which hides a gold mine - with the brothers Wright; the greedy "Rompimano" and his henchmen; and the legitimate owner: Glenda Kelly. A really big jumble of trivialities and common places, stuffed with unfunny humor and an electronic score - you would know where do Marcello Giombini ("Return of Sabata", 1971 by Gianfranco Parolini) got inspiration from - that is completely out of place. Directed at a soporific pace by an artisan usually less distracted like Juan Bosh ("And the Crows Will Dig You Grave", 1972) the picture just falls flat. What a pity! In theory the couple Anthony Steffen ("Lone and Angry Man", 1965 by Mario Caiano)and Fernando Sancho ("A Pistol for Ringo", 1965 by Duccio Tessari) was excellent; but to work it would have needed quite other screenplay and, mostly, quite other bite.
