A man disguised as Sartana leads a gang in robbing a bank of $300,000. While the real Sartana tries to prove his innocence and find the imposter, he is constantly pursued by bounty hunters: some who only care about the $10,000 reward on his head, a few who are more interested in locating the stolen money and one who mixes bad luck at gambling with good luck in bounty-hunting.
Nothing short of great stuff here with an excellent cast and a well written script punctuated by some great little moments of humor. Garko is better than usual as the eagle-eyed, razor toungued and lightning fast Sartana and has a wealth of great character actors to support him, including the vastly underrated Frank Wolff. The direction is exceptionally stylish, with numerous POV shots and expressionist angles that add loads of atmosphere to what, in lesser hands, could have been a rather average outing. Great stuff, that may not convert the heathens, but will definitely please the spag aficionados.
