  Banker Burton, with the help of Martinez and his outlaw gang, has managed to get hold of almost all the mines in the area. Old Thomas Livingstone, in order to mount an effective resistance to the intimations of the outlaws, which would cause him to abandon his mine, takes advantage of the impending hanging of Johnny Burton who has been accused of murder. The young man in danger of being lynched, is saved by Lupe the lover of Burton who, exasperated by the behavior of her husband, who is about to marry another woman, reveals their illegal activities. While the entire population of the town sides with Johnny, Lupe is determined to take the law into her own hands. Livingstone and Johnny form a partnership and both come out winners in the end.

  1. It seems that Aldo Sambrell is in a lot of Spaghetti Westerns. He just happens to be one of my favorites. Still can't believe El Indio accused him of murder in "For A Few Dollars More". And what's interesting is that after he died his ashes were sprinkled on Main Street at Mini Hollywood in Almeria, Spain near the Tabernas Desert as a token of gratitude for all his contributions to the Spaghetti Western. Viva Aldo!
