Lee van Cleef means business in Barquero

A group of Mexican bandits, led by nasty Remy (Oates) head for the town of Lonely Dell in order to cross the Paria River. Leaving a trail of death and destruction along the way, they arrive at Lonely Dell not expecting any resistance from the town’s citizen. After decimating the local town, the gang of bandits demand that bargeman Travis (van Cleef) transport the crooks and their booty across the river. But they get more than they bargained for when Travis turns the table on the vicious gang.

Also featuring Forrest Tucker (Sands of Iwo Jima), Kerwin Mathews (The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) and Mariette Hartley (The Magnificent Seven Ride!) in its cast, Barquero was directed by Gordon Douglas, who was clearly influenced by the era’s ‘Spaghetti Western’ trend!
