A master gunfighter teams up with a banjo-playing drifter and a Mexican tramp to foil the town leaders of Daugherty, Texas, who want to steal $100,000 from their own bank to buy land that the approaching railroad will cross.
Lee Van Cleef,
Amiable, unassertive Scott Mary picks up the trash, cleans the toilets, sweeps the floors in the town of Clifton. Then a gunfighter comes to town. He offers advice and guidance to Scott who quickly begins to toughen and mature, thus upsetting the balance of power in the town.Written by

Around the 27-minute mark Lee Van Cleef's character Talby walks through a street with white buildings. This is the exact same set seen in For a Few Dollars More (1964). also starring Van Cleef (and Clint Eastwood). The particular scene in this film is also shot from the exact same perspective and angle as in "For a Few Dollars More" when Eastwood's character has a short stand-off with three Mexican gunslingers.

When Scott gees his horse to go after Talby in the English version, his yells are simply reused from the Italian version (despite their two voice actors sounding very different). See more »
"Days of Wrath" is an excellent Spaghetti Western. Both Van Cleef and Gemma have excellent characterizations to portray; it is particularly interesting to witness Gemma's transformation from submissive outcast to dominating gunfighter. Van Cleef has one of his best non-Leone roles. A solid story, with a great music score and theme. Fans of the genre should not miss it. Some American video versions are highly edited; try to see the uncut version.
