Wow, this was almost as boring as "Price of Power," but much more entertaining (haha, I'm entitled to my opinion!) This movie is a total mess. It's seems to be more of a thriller/mystery/giallo than a Spaghetti Western most of the time... but it does have the SW aspects at other times. Like all of the Italian westerns of the same time, it could have just been passed of as another Demofilo Fidani film.
POSSIBLE SPOILER WARNING
The best part, hands down, even better than the fake snakes in the beginning, is when the Sheriff puts the bag of snakes on the table... we get 5 minutes of everyone nervously staring at the bag wondering what the tiny snakes will do... after a fake snake attacks poor Ivano Staccioli, then we have them on the ground. It's great to see everyone run and hide behind couches and chairs, hoping the tiny snakes in the big room don't get them. Amazing.
