is the leader of a band of renegade mercenaries who join forces with two
Confederate officers to rob some Union gold (hidden inside a stash of
dynamite). The heist goes well but MacKay's orders are - afterwards -
to kill everyone in his gang and come back alone with the gold. This is
a task that isn't so easy for him to do but some double crossing makes
it easier to swallow. Clyde eventually meets up with his two bosses who
have the same idea regarding him.
This is a
remarkably strong, testosterone-infused Spaghetti Western [without a single
female in the cast], well directed by Enzo G. Castellari (who made numerous
legendary Westerns - including KEOMA
OF THE BEARS - as well as some exceptional genre motion pictures
MOMENTS and KYRA
HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE LAKE), with very good performances especially
by Chuck Connors.
Before Chuck Connors
became an actor in the mid '50s, he was a professional basketball player
[the first to shatter a backboard while playing with the Boston Celtics
in 1946] and baseball player [initially for the Brooklyn Dodgers and then
the Chicago Cubs, 1948-52]. Chuck Connors made a whopping 134+ films but
surprisingly few in Europe (one noteable exception is Andrea Bianchi's
MANIAC KILLER). He is best known for his role of Lucas McCain
in ABC's Rifleman series. He also Mr Connors died from lung cancer
at age 72 in November 1992.
