This is a rare and unusual Eurowestern from director Volker Vogeler, starring William Berger as "Doc" Holliday and Geraldine Chaplin as Katie Elder. The cast includes other well-known Spaghetti-Western actors like Eduardo Fajardo, Tito García, and Frank Braña. Many of the movie scenes were filmed in Colmenar Viejo, nearby Madrid (Spain).

The story starts in Bavaria towards the end of the 19th Century, where five misfits are being deported due to a number of crimes they have committed. They sail towards America from the port of Bremen, seeking a better life. The started working in Nevada as labourers in a mining company, but afterwards they left the company while taking with them certain amount of money and becoming outlaws. They keep heading West and they kill an old indian named Bent Dog, whose horse they steal. They end in a place named Yanktown where the only jobs they can find is cleaning latrins, and they are constantly being harassed by the locals. Eventually, Doc Holliday convinces them to rob the local bank and steal $ 80,000.

This movie is not easy to find nowadays. I haven't found any DVDs around, but there is a Spanish TVRip on the Web with English subtitles. It is well-worth watching, even if just because of being such a rare film and ..... well, just have a look at Geraldine Chaplin in the poster.
