Glory City: For the town's own holiday, the townfathers want to stage their annual duel -to-the-death between Brenner (Lex Barker) and Deakes - but a stranger, Reece (Pierre Brice) rides into town and tells them Deakes is dead, but he's more than happy to take his place.

Later that day, on his way to Powder City, Reece runs into Brenner. The two don't know that they are only days away from shooting each other, and they have nothing in common - Reece is a young hothead and professional gambler looking for kicks, Brenner a disillusioned gunfighter -, still, they take an instant liking to each other.

In Powder City, Seth Grande (George Rigaud) wants to sell his land to settlers, much to the dismay of Jack Villaine (Gérard Tichy), the local bigshot who only refrains from shooting Seth because he's in love with his daughter Jade (Marianne Koch), who only sticks with him to save her dad's life - while he thinks she ahs betrayed him.

When Brenner and Reece come into town (seperately) both Seth and Jade - Brenner's ex - try to win them over for Seth's cause, but both Brenner and Reece turn them down for different reasons. Still, they soon see who's the goodie and who's the baddie in this story, and since their hearts are in the right places, they more or less instinctively take Seth's side - so much so that Villaine soon orders his men to kill them ... but Brenner and Reece emerge victorious from shootout after shootout, fistfight after fistfight.

Ultimately, Seth challenges Villaine to a duel, to settle things once and for all - but since Villaine is likely to cheat, Brenner and Reece see to it that none of Villaine's snipers interfere by shooting them all dead ... and when Villaine shoots Jade, they shoot him too.

Jade survives the shooting and Brenner promises to come back to her after the big shootout in Glory City ...

Glory City: It's only when Brenner and Reece finally face each other in the big duel that they realize what they're in for. Nobody draws, but they start to laugh almost hysterically, so much so that some of the town's hotheads draw their guns to make them shoot each other - but Brenner and Reece have no problems gunning those down ... and thus, without a winner and a loser, Glory City still had a great shoot-out.


Rather decent Euro-Western, made to cash in on the Winnetou-series of films of course (the two leads are a dead-giveaway), but actually made more in the traditon of American B-Westerns than anything coming out of Germany. Still, the story of this film is pretty fresh and works rather well - with one letdown: The main plot (Brenner and Reece against Villaine) is over after about an hour (the typical running time for an American B-Western incidently) and the final duel, which holds only few surprises, takes up the rest of the screen time and seems to be tagged onto the film, despite being set up at the beginning of the movie.

Still, totally watchable.
