This is a surprisingly low-key Paella Western in which a retired gunfighter takes on a dangerous group of nasty brothers
Passable Tortilla Western well starred by the American Craig Hill and compellingly directed by Rafael Marchent . Cool Spaghetti full of fury , action, and portentous duels . This decent as well as enjoyable Paella Western owes a considerable debt to Leone and packs violence , shootouts , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . It deals with a retired gunslinger named Don Murphy (Craig Hill) happily married to Laura Murphy (Gloria Milland) . Years before, on the run and trying to encounter a location to settle down, a Sheriff (Jesus Puente) accidentally shoots and murders their son . In retribution , Murphy takes Sheriff's own son . Nowadays , they live in a ranch next to a little town dominated by the powerful Carter Brothers (Lorenzo Robledo , Hugo Planco , Piero Lulli) led by John (Jose Guardiola) and their foreman (Luis Induni) . When he learns his friend Pat Davis (director's brother , Carlos Romero Marchent , who usually plays his films) is shot , Murphy seeks vengeance against the Carter brothers who cowardly killed him . Murphy is relentless in his vendetta , deadly in his violence .
Spaghetti with Chorizo Western crammed with thrills , drama , shoot em' up , murders and lots of violence and action . An Italian-Spanish co-production full of emotion , exaggerated characters, shootouts and twists . The motion picture was well written by ordinary Joaquin Romero and professionally directed by Rafael Romero Marchent . Leone-style Western with nice performances and fine direction by Rafael Romero Marchent who creates some good action scenes and exciting set pieces . It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist Craig Hill against Jose Guardiola and his brothers : Hugo Blanco , Lorenzo Robledo and Piero Lulli . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as is full of fury , sadism , bloodbaths , and close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . The notorious Spaghetti/Paella actor , Craig Hill is good in his usual tough role , here playing a former gunman , now farmer, become into a terrible avenger . His role is well performed , he plays as a relentless revenger , a violent veteran who seeks a bloody vendetta , an usual plot in Spaghetti/Paella Western . Craig Hill played a lot of Spaghetti such as "Seven Pistols for a Massacre" , "Rick and John¨ , ¨Conquerors of the West¨ , ¨Bounty hunter¨ , "I Want Him Dead" , "Fifteen Scaffolds for the Killer" , "Three Crosses of Death" , ¨Bury Them Deep¨ , and this "Hands of a Gunfighter" or ¨Ocaso de un Pistolero¨ , his first Western . His main enemy is rightly performed by Jose Guardiola as a cruelly baddie role is terrific, he subsequently would play similar characters . Furthermore, there appears usual Italian/Spanish Western support actors , a largely secondary cast plenty with Spanish/Italian secondaries , all of them ordinary in Chorizo western , such as Jesús Puente , Raf Baldassarre , Piero Lulli , Francisco Sanz , Jesus Guzman , Luis Induni , Hugo Blanco, Lorenzo Robledo , Rufino Ingles , Emilio Rodriguez , among others , though there sadly lacks the great Fernando Sancho . Adequate photography by Miguel Fernandez Mila , being necessary a right remastering because of the film copy is washed out , filmed on location in Las Rozas , Manzanares Del Real , La Pedriza , Madrid . And being accompanied by an agreeable musical score by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino , including catching leitmotif.
The movie was produced in enough budget by Ricardo Sanz who financed various Paella Western such as "My Horse, My Gun, Your Widow" , ¨4 Implacables¨ , ¨Bala Marcada¨ and "I'll Kill Him and Return Alone" . Being professionally directed and in his own personal style by Rafael Romero Marchent . Rafael Romero Marchent was born on May 3, 1926 in Madrid, Spain. He is a director and actor, known for Garringo, Un Dolar de Recompensa , or Manos Torpes . Rafael Romero Marchent was brother of Joaquin Luis Romero , who was the first to shoot Westerns in Spain . At first, Rafael Romero began in films as an actor, but when his career began to wane, he preferred to spend time behind the camera . Rafael is an expert writer and director of Spaghetti Western as proved in ¨Two crosses on Danger Pass¨, Cry for revenge¨, ¨Two guns for two twins¨ and ¨Sartana Kills Them All¨ or ¨Un par Asesinos¨. While his brother Joaquin Marchent is deemed the Paella Western's best director , his first film was ¨El Coyote¨ and the sequel titled ¨Revenge of Coyote¨ shot in Mexico ; after that , he filmed ¨The shadow of Zorro¨ and ¨Revenge of Zorro¨, he went go directing Western as ¨ Riding to death ¨ , ¨Adventures in the West¨ , ¨Three good men¨, ¨Sabor Venganza ¨ and the most popular and violent ¨Condenados a Vivir¨ . Plus , he wrote for his brother Rafael Romero Marchent the followings Western : ¨Manos Torpes¨, ¨Ocaso Un Pistolero¨ , ¨Garringo¨ , ¨Dos Cruces en Danger Pass¨ and ¨Sartana Kills Them All¨. Rating : 6/10 .Passable and decent Chorizo Western , though contains some flaws and gaps ; however , it results to be entertaining .
