On the run from the Sheriff, outlaw Johnny Ringo kills Captain Conroy's (Sieghardt Rupp) family in an accidental fire that also kills himself - or so everybody believes, everybody but Captain Conroy, who is convinced Johnny Ringo's still alive, so he hires Sam Dobie (Lex Barker) to track him down, even if nobody knows what Ringo really looks like.

Dobie goes undercover as a gun salesman, as he figures a decent gun might lure Johnny Ringo out into the open, and soon enough, he hooks up with master marksman Clyde Smith (Joachim Fuchsberger), who does demonstrations for Dobie, whonever carries a gun himself, and who might or might not be Johnny Ringo - at least a saloon singer, Billy Monroe (Ralf Wolter), who is really another employee of Captain Conroy, thinks he is and soon lures Conroy to town.

Thing is, actually Dobie himself is Johnny Ringo, and he arranges for his girlfriend Bea (Marianne Koch), the only one knowing his real identity, to identify Smith as Ringo - and soon enough, it seems Smith has lost a battle he hasn't even started, as Conroy and his men prepare to lynch him - while Bea and Dobie/Johnny Ringo fall out because he romances another woman (Barbara Bold), the blacksmith's daughter, and Bea's already sure he is going to shoot her ... when guilt catches up with Dobie/Ringo, and he frees his friend Smith in the nick of time from Conroy and his men even if it costs his own life ...

 

Ok Euro-Western that on one hand features some nice twists and turns - like turning the main good guy into a baddie towards the end of the film -, but unfortunately Lex Barker seems ill at ease with the evil side of his character, and thus he lets down the movie just when it would have needed a strong performance. Likewise, Joachim Fuchsberger seems just a tad too nice to qualify as someone everybody mistakes for a notorious outlaw. Still, the film's direction is competent, it's reasonably paced and the sets are quite fine - all of which (as mentioned above) adds up to an ok Euro-Western, but certainly no more than that.
