  1. Another early Marchent Western that I enjoy very, very much!

  2. I plan on remaking this film in the future. But first I'll have to see it on YouTube. If you're looking for the film itself, go to Grjngo Western Movies in the search and the channel will pop up. The film will be there along with some other Spaghetti Westerns you've probably never seen yet.
