This film was shot in Spain. It was directed by veteran "B" movie director Lesley Selander with many many films to his credit and alo early TV Westerns. This film stared Audie Murphy, Broderic Crawford and a trio of Leone Alumni, Aldo Sambrell (AFOD. FAFDM, GBU, OUTITW, DYS),  Antonio Casas (Stevens in GBU), Antonio Molino Rojo (AFOD, FAFDM, GBU, OUTITW) with Diana Lorys as a unobtrusive love interest . Sambrell is Crawford's right hand man and he has a fairly big part.

It has some great Spanish landscapes not seen (or recognized) from any of Leone's films. Its well acted and moderately entertaining but still a B movie with a score thats a bit too intrusive. Its available on Netflix for anybody curious.

Saw it years ago and I remember not liking it very much.
Too much of an American feel to it.

Copied this off of TCM a few days ago. Only watched a bit of it as I was transferring it to a DVD-R (I think I already had a copy of it around somewhere). They showed it in widescreen. The Nico Fidenco score is very nice what I have heard of it so far. Appears to be a US-Italy co-production judging by the credits and the actors seen in the film and mentioned above. The whole movie seems to have been post synced.
