A butler named Jose Desmet, has killed his employer, a former District Judge, who at one time years before, condemned Desmet's father, a famous outlaw, to death. Then Desmet tries to seduce a miner named Salazar's daughter, who is heir to a goldmine. He also kills another woman and the town doctor because they have found out that he was selling weapons to the Indians. A government investigator, Bill McGregor/Walcom, together with the local sheriff, sets out to put an end to Desmet's atrocities and outlawry once and for all.

  2. Tom, are you sure about the song title "“They Call Him Django”? The Wilder Brothers song that plays over opening credits is called "He Wore A Silver Star."
