Directed by Salvatore Rosso.

Anthony Steffen plays the mysterious stranger called Gary Hamilton who (FOD style) arrives at Paso Bravo on a mule.Similar to FOD Hamilton is given a very hostile welcome from the town thugs who go out of their way to rough him up,throw drink in his face,generally humiliate him but this anti-hero doesn't fight back or even have a gun,at least initially.

We find out out by about a third into the movie that years before Hamiltons family had perished in a fire started by the sadistic  town boss Acombar(Eduardo Fajardo)and once his henchmen make the mistake of offering Hamilton a winchester the pace of the movie soon picks up drastically.Hamilton is aided in his vengeance by the lovely guitar strumming,singing owner of the saloon Rosy(Adriana Ambesi) and a rip-off salesmen(Pepe Calvo from FOS who sold him the mule and supplies the light relief in the movie),and it all builds up to a terrific climax when they make an exciting assault on Acombars ranch.

Both Steffen and Fajardo excel in this movie,which i rate 6 out of 10. Smiley

Steffen + Fajardo= Success!

Few exceptions to that rule.

I agree with Banjo. The chase is beautifully blended with the Lavagnino's scores which doiesn't have memorable tunes but, as noted at IMDB, has some electronic instriments. ActuallyI could give it something more: 7\10.
