Silvertown Sleuthing.

Una colt in mano al diavolo (Colt in the Hands of the Devil) finds Robert Wood as Roy Koster, an ex-convict who upon release travels to Silvertown to enact a favour for the man who saved his life in prison.

Standard stuff here with no innovation in production to lift it above average. Story is simple but solid enough, with a nice mystery element keeping one interested as Koster tries to get to the bottom of why his prison saviour, Jeremy Scott (Attilio Dottesio), was imprisoned and why he is so reviled by the townsfolk - including his family! Action is passable, though the finale is weak, while an array of quirky characters flit in and out of proceedings. Some enjoyable names as well, Sulking Jerry, Limping Jerry...

Much of a muchness in the grand scheme of Spaghetti Westerns, it is mostly harmless fare - that is except for one piece of raging misogyny where naturally if you slap a woman around and force yourself on her - she will melt in your arms... 5/10
