50th anniversary of “A Bounty Hunter for Trinity”


Today marks the 50th anniversary of “A Bounty Hunter in Trinity” premier. Directed by Oscar Farradine (Oscar Santaniello) and starred Jeff Cameron, Attilio Dottestio and Paul Cren. The film is about yhe town of Trinity which is invaded by Mexican bandits led by the Sancho brothers, Ramon and Pedro, who rob, kill and terrorize the town. Aided by their informer and accomplice Pizzaro (Antonio Cantafora), who runs the local saloon but who wants to run the rest of the town. The local sheriff (Silvio Klein) is inept to handle the situation and when a federal marshal is sent in to help he is ambushed and killed. Desperate, the town folk of Trinity hire a notorious bounty killer to rid the town of the Mexicans. Alan Boyd (Jeff Vameron) is more of a killing machine than a bounty hunter and one who enjoys his profession to the hilt. He demands money up front plus the rewards on the gang member’s heads. The tricks of his trade are a crossbow mounted with a telescope and of course the always efficient dynamite which he has attached to some of his arrows. When the job is completed, he's contacted by a neighboring town that also need him to rid their village of another band of Mexicans.
