This old spaghetti Western may have been the first of its genre, and it is notable for a number of interesting thematic reversals that are carried out in subsequent spaghetti Westerns and even in later American re-assessments of the genre. The most clear-cut of these is the "bad Anglo, good Mexican" perspective that runs through the film, personified in the despicable Wilson brothers (who constantly humilate the decent Mexicans of this Texas town and make radical racial slurs against them). The same motif can be seen in the Charles Bronson-Henry Fonda faceoff in "Once Upon a Time in the West". Another is the "bad sheriff (Corbett)--good gunfighter (Ricardo "Gringo" Martinez") motif" that also comes out much, much later in the (American-made) Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio film, "The quick and the Dead", as well as in Clint Eastwood's dark and powerful "Unforgiven". While some of the acting is stilted in places, the film's departures from the classic Hollywood stereotypes that came through in the final waning days of the Western on TV, such as "Bonanza" are exactly what make it compelling.

As an afficionado of the spaghetti Western genre, above all the superlative "Once Upon a Time in the West", and the Clinton Eastwood-Sergio Leone trilogy ("The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," "Fistful of Dollars", and "For a Few Dollars More"--each of which glorifies bounty hunters rather than lawmen!) I can see where this film established several of the reversal motifs on which the subsequent great films yet rest. An added bonus is the great theme song, with its haunting refrain, "the only man you can trust is a dead man, or a Gringo like me.....".

Really good old fashioned western. Often cliche in a good way. While I understand the value of the reviews of the release quality and medium.... they aren't very useful for those like me who are just looking for something entertaining to watch on instant video.

The video was so bad [blurred] that I couldn't watch it. I don't know if it is good or not.
