Storyline

An American, Frank, threatens to kidnap his partner's son because he has double crossed him. Unfortunately the boy is accidentally killed during the confrontation and Frank has to run away. His partner, wild with rage, promises a reward of 50,000 dollars for his capture dead or alive. Scott, a crop dusting pilot has crushed into a water tank and having no adequate insurance, he is unable to repay the 12,000 pesos for the repairs. But he remembers seeing the fugitive while flying and manages to persuade Captain Carbajal to go off in pursuit of the wanted man. A group forms, composed of Carbajal, his deputy Lopez, a driver, , Luis and the Indian Joaquin. They set out across the desert, in the hope of laying hands on Frank... and Sylvia, his girlfriend, who has joined him in the meantime. Written by Guy Bellinger

A Foreign Western
17 October 2015 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

Max van Sydow and Yvette Mimieux in a western? With Efrem Zimbalist? What were they thinking? Even the presence of Emilio Fernandez (the great Mapache from "The Wild Bunch"), Gilbert Roland, and Henry Silva can't rescue this strange re-make of "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

The story itself is not so bad and with different actors and a different director it might have been better. Director Serge Bourguignon is a Frenchman best known for "Sundays and Cybele" and "Two Weeks in September", not exactly the kinds of films that you think of when looking at someone to work in the Western genre.

When you think of the good westerns made in the mid 60s ("Ride the High Country", "Man Who Shot Liberty Valance", "A Fistful of Dollars". "Cheyenne Autumn", "Cat Ballou", "Shenandoah", "Sons of Katie Elder", "The Wild Bunch") this film pales in comparison.
