De Ossorio must have directed better horror movies than western ones, judging from this one. Shot in b&w (this is a first for me, as far as euro-western is concerned) it has a plot kept together by spit. George Martin goes to the town of Tucson after having received a message from his brother not to go looking for him and finds he's dead, shot at after having killed a girl. But Martin starts thinking the truth being different after having dug up the coffin of his brother and found it empty...
This drags boringly and (sometimes) involuntarily funny till the end. The gang of outlaws are all dressed in black like in the good ole westerns. The score by Daniel White is fake country music like in the good ole westerns. But I felt a surge of emotion when after 10 minutes Martin and the girl he has just rescued from kidnapping ride into the same town that a few months before (I presume) had been the one of the Rojos and the Baxters.

And a lot of nice familiar faces.

He's not killed. He's seen in a saloon scene in the beginning, but his is a very small part, even smaller than in Fistful. Only dead in this movie is the girl. Which accounts for the boring.

I just finished watching that movie and I didn't think it was too bad.

Interesting to see the Rojo's building from FOD being transformed into a saloon in this movie.
