Good production values, but flimsy (though watchable) story, almost completely based on the question posed in the title. Sieghardt Rupp ("Esteban Rojo" for Leonites) searches the Johnny of the title because that one caused the destruction of his family. He engages the seervices of Lex Barker who poses as a gun salesman to discover what really happened to the presumed dead Johnny Ringo.
This was made 2 years after FOD and that's its greatest sin. The score is pre-morriconian too and mediocre anyway. I think it is good though to watch Rupp; and Marianne Koch singing in german. 5\10
