In the movie, an ex-soldier turned priest (Robert Shaw, Jaws) shares a brutal town with a bloodthirsty bandit (Telly Savalas, The Slender Thread) and his gang of sadistic killers. One day, a beautiful blond widow dressed in black (Stella Stevens, The Nutty Professor) arrives in town on a hearse, accompanied by a deaf-mute gunman (Dudley Sutton, The Devils) and in search of her husband’s killer. Also arriving in town is a small platoon of soldiers and their Colonel (Martin Landau, Crimes and Misdemeanors) looking for the legendary revolutionary leader, Aguila. Not surprisingly, e the players quickly find themselves at cross-purposed with one another, resulting in lots an lots of violence…

The cast in the R-rated film also includes Fernando Rey (That Obscure Object of Desire) and Al Lettieri (Mr. Majestyk).

This one’s definitely for fans of cheapo, shoot-em up Euro-Westerns!
