I fancied getting my hands on Doc, Hands of Steel, not realising I had it already as the title as in our database.
Karl Mohner is better in this than in Gold Train - playing his part(s) well as the boozed-up gambler with a price on his head, who takes on another man’s identity to become sheriff of a town that is being terrorized by Mexican bandits - led magnificently by arch-bandito chief - Fernando Sancho.
That ‘price’ is wanting to be collected by suspicious bounty killer Slade - a cool and mean dude who takes on the role of Deputy to keep an eye on his sheriff/reward until his suspicions can be realised.
It starts slow, and I wasn’t initially enamoured by it’s pace and feel - but it grew on me. There was enough twisting to keep me entertained, despite it having that American western feel (but I’m no expert - what do others think of this?) - and although being a bit corny love-interest-wise and a potential to get a bit moralistic/happy-endingy, it kept me guessing as to how it might end… upbeat or nihalistic?
In feel - not as spaghetti as I like 'em usually - but more than ok this evening.

The version I watched said at the end “Fan dubbed by Dillinger” - well done fellah - another film I was at last able to watch!
