Ridiculously naive and ambitious Zapata western with revenge plot. Shot in Central Italy, it displays unusual production values, with lots of well dressed extras. The plot's starting point is peculiar: a couple of peones about to marry don't want to abide by the ius primae noctis (the privilege of the feudal lord to take the virginity of  a girl before the wedding) and they are killed. As the female zoo is quite interesting and there are two or three scenes which may have evolved in something more spicy I wonder if a more graphic version was ever shot and available. Anyway is worth watching at least once, on youtube. 6/10
