50th Anniversary of premiere of The Stranger Returns

50 years ago today August 17, 1967 saw the premier of “The Stranger Returns”. A gang of outlaws acting on the border between the United States and Mexico, with the complicity of a postal officer seizes a carriage full of gold that was trying to pass the border illegally. A drifter that nobody knows, called "The Stranger", becomes aware of it, but is unable to exterminate the band of outlaws. When trying to get away with the golden carriage, a trivial incident reveals its unique composition and the adventurer is forced to return it and to settle for the rewards of the bounties placed on the heads of bandits.
