I’m going mad in not finding this, I’m pretty sure this is not the Ringo duo of movies but from what I can remember the premise it pretty close to those:
Both movies have the main character (same in both) played by the same actor (pretty sure) and I’m pretty sure the director is the same as well. The one thing I remember about them is that even though the character has the same name the sequel is not really a straight follow up (as in the case of the Ringo movies). It’s as if they just used the same character because he was popular. I also kind of remember them to have been made within the same 2 years (again, as with the Ringo movies).
Sadly my memory regarding the story is very vague but I remember I was taken by surprise how good they were. I think it had the usual “one stranger entering a town where he is looked down upon at first but ends up saving the day”-story. It was more towards the serious westerns, not full of humour.
The character might have been connected to the law enforcement in one of the movies but then more like a lone gunman in the other. I remember there was som kind of difference between the characters somehow.
Thanks for any help!
