A clan of mexicans headed by a Ramon holds in thrall a whole county in american territory. They start a feud with the Baxter family (these names sound familiar, don't they?) because one of the Ramon's brothers is killed while trying to rape Slim Baxter's girl. Slim will have his family exterminated but will revenge himself ion the end and get the girl back too (she had given willingly herself to Ramon to fullfill a vow  if Slim had survived after being shot to death by Ramon. What a vow to make, uh?).
The movie is melodramatic, the heightening of emotions being supported by the saocre. So you laugh almost all the time when not snoring. Only scene worth mentioning is the one which sees Slim acquiring a better draw speed thanx to a method I wonž't explain.
Also worth noting (and laughing) is the appearance of one of the last Mizz Zcarled Mamie's in the history of western movies.

Another sw i can't respond to properly at present Titoli . :-[

With that title(like the Clint The Stranger movies) they were obviously cashing in on Ramon Roho from FOD.

Putting also the Baxter into it was rather cheeky, wasn't it?
