Hank ‘Lanky Fellow’ Fellows is a bounty hunter who, unlike his colleagues, does not pursue wanted outlaws but pursues convoys carrying money from one bank to another, hoping that bandits strike and try to take possession of the transported goods. At that point he goes into action, exterminates them all with his rifle which is fitted with a scope and retrieves the money and takes the money back the to the bank and asking for a fair percentage as a reward. During one of these adventures Lanky arrives at Omaka to bring back the gold that bandits had stolen from an armored wagon. Here Collins, a wealthy mine owner, proposes to Lanky, which he accepts, to invest ten thousand dollars that he just earned to ensure an upcoming gold deposit is made. In the event that the bank is attacked by bandits and the gold is stolen, Fellows would lose his ten thousand dollars; if not he would double that figure. When the bandits arrive at Omaka to steal the gold, in addition to having several members killed, the find no money in the vault of the bank, suffering a severe defeat. The town calms down and Lanky is able to eliminate the leader of the gang and his right-hand man. Lanky, doubled his capital, and again goes in search of other adventures.

[Trivia ~ Valerii succeeded in replacing the Spaniard Ricardo Blasco (who had quarreled with the producers) and had chosen as its lead a young American actor vaguely similar to Sean Connery (who knows who it was) who, however, was drugged and accordingly was sent away. In his place Craig Hill, a veteran Euro-western actor.]

  1. Tom, 'Graham Sooty'' is Eugenio Galadino. Virgilio Gazzolo is born 1936 and far too young for being this.

  2. Fatman you are correct and I know that and my database is correct like you say so why I had him listed as Gazzolo I can't figure out. Change made
