Eastman is Chaco, a bandit about to be hanged because unjustly accused of rape. He manages to escape and a bounty hunter gets on his trail. There starts a series of captures and evasions until the two combine to defeat a band of outlaws.
The plot, as noted at italian SWDB, recalls The Big Gundown, but it has no redeeming value if not Eastman's presence and some mexican scene and character (in spite of having been shot near Rome) a fast rhythm, minor characters aplenty, sets sometime well-chosen. At IMDB they see Scilla Gabel: I didn't (maybe I was sleeping) but sure Antonella Steni can't make it up for her absence. How this brilliant (she earned quite a notoriety in the '60's at  a sunday radio show) but not young or pretty landed the job would be worth a research. Anyway it gets a 5\10.
