Tony Garrett (Richard Wyler) wants to be nothing but a model soldier, to be a worthy successor to his father who died in battle. Then though the captain of his fort is killed, the fort's payroll is stolen, and all evidence points to Garrett as the killer - even if he didn't do it. Consequently, Garrett is soon convicted to death and only manages to escape thanks to a priest who believes in his innocence.

At first, all Tony is trying to do is to track down those who have set him up, and soon enough he has tracked down three of the four men and killed them - but all in self defense, since Garrett is no man who draws first. Thing is, Garrett can't find a single lead on the fourth man, and after a while he has to come to terms with the fact that he will live the rest of his life as a man on the run, since for the society he has become a wanted outlaw.

In the meantime, Riff (Guglielmo Spoletini) and his gang of outlaws want to empty the bank of Aquila, and to successfully do so they plan to create a massive diversion during which they also kill the sheriff ... but then they learn the sheriff of Aquila is Bill Manners (Brad Harris), the toughest lawman in the West, so they decide to hire Garrett, who has meanwhile gathered some reputation as Rattler Kid, the quickest draw of the West, to take care of Manners - and Garrett agrees, but demands half the loot ...

In Aquila, Garrett meets Alex Turner (Jesús Puente), his groundschool teacher, and somehow the teacher manages to appeal to his conscience and has Garrett rethink his plans - and when he and the sheriff finally face each other, none of them draws, and eventually the sheriff gets called away,a s one part of Riff's gang has just abducted Jill, the teacher's sweetheart.

At the bank, Garrett teams up with the teacher to shoot it out with Riff and his accomplice, the part of the gang responsible for the actual bank job, but the teacher gets gravely injured while Riff and company get away - with Garrett in hot pursuit. And while going after Riff and co, Garrett actually learns that it was Riff who killed the Captain all that time ago and set him up in the first place. Ultimately, Garrett and Riff face each other, and Garrett manages to defeat his opponent but keep him alive to clear him of his murder charge. Thing is, Garrett's horse is bitten by a rattlesnake and killed in the middle of the desert, and now Garrett has to bring Riff to Aquila by foot ...

In the meantime, the Sheriff has freed Jill and shot most of Riff's men, and it's only when he returns to Aquila tht he learns the bank has been robbed. He wants to go after Garrett, whom he thinks the culprit, right away, but the teacher, still on the verge of dieing, manages to persuade the sheriff to give Garrett, whom the teacher knows to be innocent, 6 hours time - in which time Garrett only just makes it back to Aquila with his captive and manages to clear himself of all suspicions ...

 


Rather interesting Euro-Western that features quite a few plot elements not usually found in a film like this and that features an avenging anti-hero that has far more depth than your usual Euro-Western avenger, plus the film also carries a strong social subtext without ever being overly talky let alone preachy - after all this is still first and foremost a Western, so there is the usual massive horseriding plus fistfighting and gunshooting, naturally.

Above all else the film probably proves one thing: When veteran genre director León Klimovsky had sufficient means at hand like in this film, he could turn out some very decent and intelligent stuff - thing is, he only rarely had sufficient means at hand ...
