When Butch Cassidy (Hunt Powers) & his gang shoot down the Carson gang in their sleep, little do they know they didn't quite manage to kill Macho (Jeff Cameron).

& while good Macho recovers from his near-fatal wounds, Cassidy has an open dispute with Ironhead (Gordon Mitchell), a member of his gang who wants to take over. Cassidy manages though to persuade him to settle their differences by a game of poker over the whole loot from their last pillage. He wins (if only by cheating), & the gang breaks up ...

Fully recovered, Macho heads for the next village, his head set on revenge, & there he immediately makes enemies with the local reverend (Klaus Kinski) & befriends the local badman Buck - or is it the other way round, one never seizes to wonder ...

When Macho & Buck make an escape after a successful robbery, Macho is attacked from behind & almost shot - which puts the friendship of the 2 men to a test, but in the end, Macho decides to forgive Buck (!), & also learns that the man behind Buck is Ironhead, who has since taken the guise of a successful businessman, but who always tends to have his accoplices shot in order to optimize his own share of whatever loot. & furthermore, Ironhead wants to get even with Butch Cassidy, who has since taken cover in another small village with Kid (Philip Garner), posing as a successful veterenarian (!!). But when he learns Ironhead is after him, he hides in the next ghosttown with his gang, setting a nice trap for Ironhead's gang - & really, it costs the life of everyone in that gang except for Ironhead himself, Buck & Macho.

But Macho has an idea to smoke out Butch Cassidy using dynamite, & really, in a series of explosions everyone of Cassidy's gang is killed except for Cassidy himself & Kid, who can make it for the border.

Their loot though (whatever loot that is) is left behind, & all of a sudden, Ironhead wants to persuade Buck to help him kill Macho to not have to share, but Buck decides to side with his friend instead, & catches a bullet meant for Macho, & with his dieing breath, he shoots Ironhead.

In the final seconds of the film, Macho is revealed to be not an outlaw but a Pinkerton-detective after the Butch Cassidy gang.


The plot of this movie is full of incongruencies, plotholes & plottwists that defy believability, which is not made better by the fact that all the actors are either madly over the top (Kinski), untalented (Jeff Cameron) or both (Gordon Mitchell) - but all these inconsitencies lend the movie a weird trashy charme & instant likeability.
