At IMDB a german reviewer said that Raf Baldassarre delivered a good performance. How could he do that in the 40 seconds of screen time he is allowed before being killed, he doesn't say.
The movie is mediocre, though it has a potentially good stareting point: after a bank robbery a gang of outlaws find the money stolen by one of them. TO discover who the culprit is they congregate in a half-deserted stagecoach station where they end up killing each other one by one.
The screenplay and direction are sub-par, as it is the acting (the one playing the coward you want to slap his face each time he does appear on the screen two at the time until slaps get uneven). A pity. Worth a remake, maybe.
I like though the women, expecially two mature ones. One I thought was Susan Scott and is just as sexy. I like heavy '60s make-up.
Score well below Umiliani's par.

Is it possible the version you saw on italian television is cut?

Everything is possible. But I'd lean more on the hypothesis that he mistook him for another actor.

Ok film, but I missed a Django like anti hero.
