Title: El rojo (1966)

Quite linear revenge story, with a one or two elements which make it worth a view. The first is Nieves Navarro: if you like her you won't miss this in spite of her not being anywhere sexy here. The second is a strange Phantom of the Opera character that gives a wry turn to the story at the very end. Harrison is on an revenge mission against the 4 baddies who killed his family while he was a soldier and who rule a town. He kills them one by one. It gets 4\10, maybe even 5\10.

Pretty weak SW. Richard Harrison struggles with coolness as the lone revenge warrior. There's a couple of other semi-interesting characters, but nothing more. It can be watched - and on the basis of what was already mentioned by titoli - maybe even enjoyed.
