You have these families travellin' west in a convoy. The Indians attack them and the only survivors are 7 (good-looking: the more scarce is Ann Baxter) women who, after repeated meetings with the savage warriors manage, with some loss, to make it to the sanctuary (the usual fort we see in tens of these movies shot in Spain). Parolini gives us a competent product in AW style without the inventiveness he will show in later products. But the fact is that the only reason to make a western women-based should have been to show lots of female skin  and the women here are almost all the time overdressed in victorian fashion. So the only good thing one can find in this flick is its politically uncorrectedness, showing  Indians as bad, scalping savages, fighting for no apparent reason than inborn evilness. Which is refreshing after so many years of good-natured Indians ("Don't ever turn your back on an Indian" admonishes Ann Baxter one of her companions). The women attack an Indian camp after the warriors have left and kill old men without a second thought. Yes, in the last ten minutes Parolini tries to mend things up letting the male character explain that Indians sometime fight with reason and the Indian chief looks for reconcialiation. The score is atrocious. This gets 4\10, though without the score and some cut could have got more.
