Written by cult director
Fernando Di Leo (SLAUGHTER
CALIBER 9, TO
BE TWENTY), this macho Spaghetti Western from Paolo Bianchini
tells the story of a notorious bounty killer named Slim Compton hired
by a small border town to protect them from a gang of clever bandits who
rob the outgoing gold shipments.
Director Paolo Bianchi
(sometimes working under the Paul Maxwell pseudonym) was known for his
no-nonsense westerns, especially I
WANT HIM DEAD and GATLING
GUN. As of this writing, he is still active today (in his late
80s) as a director in Italian television.
Dean Reed, playing
bounty killer Compton here, was a 1960s American pop singer signed to
Capitol Records. He never had a charted record in the States; however
his third single Our Summer Romance was such a huge hit
in South America that he went to tour there. Dean never returned. More
popular than Elvis Presley, Dean Reed found tremendous fame in Chile and
Argentina [where he also had his own television program].
As time passed, he became more and more vocal against America's involvement
in Viet Nam and, in 1966, relocated to Italy where he began making Spaghetti
Westerns. A bit later, Dean conducted a concert tour in the Soviet Union
where he enjoyed the popularity of a mega star, eventually moving there
in the early '70s. After a decade of superstar status in the USSR, he
began showing an interest for returning to the USA (even recording a song
called They Don't Know Me In My Hometown). But, in June
1986, Dean Reed was found dead under mysterious circumstances. It was
rumored that his death may have come at the hands of the KGB but officially,
he had committed suicide. His body was ceremoniously buried in Red Square,
an honor typically reserved for Russian military heroes. Mr Reed was 47
