  1. Carlos Quiney is playing the character 'George Forsyte'' - an 'El Indio' is not appearing. Wanted poster is saying 'Steward'; Malisa Longo is Yuma. Dan van Husen's character is called Frank Landon. Marta Monterrey shows up as an Indian woman; Antonio Mayans ist the leader of the young towners after Saxon's head.

    So, the story is: George Forsyte is a bounty hunter using his wife Gladys as bait to attract wanted outlaws with bounties on their heads. Then one day the trick backfires and she is killed by Joe Saxon. A mysterious stranger on his track helps George to kill Saxon. Then they are both after Steward, a potsmoking crazed gangster who lives with a Indian woman said to have magic powers called Yuma while oppressing her tribe to work for him. Slowly losing his mind, he is suddenly losing his life when George and the stranger, who turns out to be Gladys' brother, earn the 5.000 $ for his head.

    A surprisingly solid, well-made, entertaining film who makes the best out of a limited budget. The Indians are hard to believe, but can you imagine Malisa Longo without eye-makeup?
    Great scene when George is waiting for his wife's stagecoach to arrive while having to kill a snake silently and then realising the facts...

    Hi, just a couple of observations. The first of the two sheriffs is played by José Marco, not by José Marco Davó (They are two similarly named actors who are frequently confused). The real name of Antonio Mayans is José Antonio Mayans Hervás.
