Title: Johnny Golden Poker (Djurado) (1966)

Another serious contender for the "worst ever SW" title. There is a plot, but it is made up of episodes which you can connect with each other maybe only if you pay attention. Which I didn't because the only thing worth watching in this mess is the 3 female actresses (among whom my favourite is England's pride Margaret Lee). The starting point is a saloon over a gold mine (that is something we'll see again in Buddy Goes West) and the owners abetted by the hero (Montgomery Clark: an extremely poor man's Montgomery Wood) who resist his evil schemes. The finale with the villain on a rocking chair holding the city "by the string" is maybe worth a peep by lovers of so bad is good. The score shows that even Ferrio doesn't know where to go. This gets 2\10 only for the female beauties.
