The Clayton/Clanton brothers, Billy and George, rob a bank on the day of Sheriff Pat Garrett's wedding. When they kill two of the bank employees who have recognized them, their only option is to head for Mexico with Garrett in hot pursuit. Thinking they are safe the brothers stop at a local inn for the night. Garrett easily captures them but the trail back becomes difficult when a local bandit Santero learns of the $30,000 dollars the trio has with them. Avoiding the bandits while crossing the desert the three men find a ranch and stop for a rest. The ranch is run by a young woman Agnes and her brother. When Billy falls for Agnes he sees the evil in his ways and begins to transform into a decent person. Billy helps Garret defend the money when Santero and his gang attack. He even saves Agnes' brother when the ranch house is set on fire. Garret will make it back and put in a good word for Billy at his trial and when he's set free he'll have a place to return to at Agnes' ranch. This film is really a western in the American form filmed in Spain. The film which was produced at the same time and filmed on the same town site was caleed “Fistful of Dollars” and completely changed the western genre. The differences between the two films is staggering. Try and watch them at one sitting and you won't believe they were filmed back to back with many of the same personnel.

  1. Biltmore: Where did you find the name Emil Morik?????

  2. I believe I saw it on a Turkish poster.

  3. Emil Morik = Ennio Morricone?

    I didn't think much of the movie, although some parts were OK. Rod Cameron was just too damn old for his role.


    From my youtube! :)

  5. I think it was a German poster that called Ennio Emil Morik. Leone was Georg Schock in some promo material for FISTFUL.

  6. Thanks ephedrino, I knew I saw it somewhere on a poster. Honest guys I don't make this stuff up, and I'm not writing a book so material is not documented. I have to go by memory or hopefully I still have something in my file cabinets. I don't mind the questioning at all it's just not always easy to find the source sometimes.
