Middling Italian-Spanish Western with habitual actors , customary scenarios and realized in Paella/Spaghetti style
The tale concerns about an army sergeant named Tony Garret (Richard Wyler), he's wrongly accused for killing and robbing and is condemned to death row . He breaks out and swears vengeance and looking for the actual culprits and retrieve his lost honour . Tom nicknamed Rattle Kid converted an outlaw with a price on his head and a poster captioning : ¨Rattle Kid , wanted, alive or dead¨. Meanwhile he robs a stagecoach and a bank and executes the vendetta . He's hired by a gang (Frank Braña , Luis Induni , among others) for robbing a bank in a little town under authority of sheriff Bill Manners (Brad Harris) . There find a school teacher (Jesus Puente) , a banker (Jose Maria Caffarel) and an impoverished cattleman (Miguel Del Castillo).
This is an average Spaghetti Western with some moments genuinely entertaining if you can avoid thinking too much . Follows the exploits of Rattle Kid in SW usual theme , the revenge , furthermore the starring attempts to save his stained reputation. Mediocre performances seem badly dated today . The picture is starred by Richard Wyler , he acted in Western (Bounty killer , Two guns and a coward , Winchester Bill) and Euro-Spy genre (Dick Smart 2007 ,Coplan) ; y Brad Harris who began doing stunt work , in the late 50s he traveled to Europe and he soon found himself working in musclemen epics (Sansone , Goliath against the giants , Fury of Hercules) and he eventually moved into Spaghetti Western and spy movies . Appropriate and atmospheric musical score by Francesco De Massi and colorful cinematography by Julio Ortas , both of whom are usual of Spaghetti Western . The motion picture is professionally directed by Leon Klimovsky , a craftsman who directed all kind of genres , as Terror for Paul Naschy (Marshall of hell ,Rebellion of dead one , Orgy of vampires , Werewolf shadow , Dr Jekill vs. the werewolf), Warlike(June 44 attack force Normandy , A bullet for Rommel , Bridge over Elba) and Western (Badland drifter , Some dollars for Django , Death knows no time , Two thousand dollars for Coyote) . Rating: regular but entertaining .
