Though 'm only 2\3 through this I can say that is one of the most flat SW I ever saw (yes, I know: this will give Firecracker the hots to grab himself a copy, unless he's got it already). Anyway n.1 for the worst opening credits in the history of the genre: they are edited on a freezed close-up of Harrison's eyes. Music: negligible, were it not that it was composed (probably) for another movie, of another genre: the sequence of the (can-can?) saloon dance must be viewed to be believed.
Harrison is out on the  usual revenge path. In a flashback (though it took me a few minutes to realize it was such) we see his sister raped (you have many rapes in the movie: no nudity, though) and killed by a band of five out to grab her money. Harrison gets 'em one by one, the last (so I've read in the italian review) being the sister's former servant, an Injun. Who, must say, doesn't look like an indian at all and no effort was made to make him look as such. 
The amateurism of it all is apparent in every sequence and every shot of the movie and one could write a book on what doesn't work, on what maybe was the intention that wasn't attained in every single sequence: I won't: enough said.

Oh, and yes: Anita Ekberg was good as bread. Ten years before.

Got to the end. Actually almost all the movie is a long flashback. And the Indian is dressed up like a mexican. So maybe I should watch again the movie and check, but I won't: i'll be waiting for Firecracker to do that. Also, the movie is more in gear than I have written before, but still it collides with the images.
