I don't know where the Ringo of the title comes from: an idea of the distributors, most probably, as Martell (delivering his usual embarassing performance) in the italian release, is only called Clyde or Captain Clyde. The english title I put in at the head of the thread gives away what is probably one of the two or three points of interest of a movie which tread a well-worn path.  Lulli (brilliant as usual) is a Pinkerton agent who teams up with Martell in trying to eliminate a gang of outlaws led by Calvo and another guy who, at the end, we'll discover being one of the two bros.. As said, the movie has only two or three points of interest being: 1) the final revelation (just when one started to feel a vague homosexual undercurrent in the plot). 2) the  Mormons massacre 3) the killing in cold-blood of one of the bandits.
If there is more to this I wasn't aware of it. This earns a 4\10.
