http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067806/

(as there are 4 different english titles around let me know which I should use).

I didn't know there had actually been two directors for this as stated in the IMDB, but I supposed as much while watching the movie. I also suppose the movie was taken away from the first amateur director and given to Fidani who, throwing away the initial comic intentions (but nobody is going to laugh or smile with this) lets the movie veer toward a typical revenge story and the movie goes much better. Martell (sporting a Terence Hill wool shirt, full of holes) is a ex-jailbird who, after having made a coup at a bank with his brother (Mitchell) is forced to accept a symbolic payment for his effort by another accomplice, a redoutable  outlaw gang leader (Lincoln Tate). Mitchell is later killed by Tate's men and when Martell discovers the truth goes on Tate's track.
There are also pretty ladies in this movie, expecially of course Daniela Giordano, though unfortunately underexploited. A Wild Bunch inspired scene of a mexican fiesta ending with a shooting  is not badly set up, though of course we are far from Peckinpah's  results.
The score was composed by some Morricone's admirer who copied outrightly some incidental music of the Maestro.

Leave as is.

Django always draws second is the title I've always associated with this film.
Never even heard of the other titles until now.

They're listed at IMDB. The curious one is Lobo the Bastard, as the character in question is not among the main ones.

Figured as much.

Probably to capitalize on all the popular "Bastard" titles.
