During the holdup, one of the bandits, Bart is shot. The three remaining
dump his body in the river and stash the loot. Wells Fargo hires bounty
hunter Ray Matalo to find the outlaws and the stolen gold. Matalo joins

to this one, he made IO
EMANUELLE with Erik Blanc. He will always be remembered for delivering
