The film tells the story of an outlaw who masquerades as a blind man’s son in order to trick the old man out of a cache of gold located in a vacated town. A gang of bandits appears in the same town to rob a payroll coach that has to pass through and they take the blind man’s gold as well, setting the desperado against the gang.
User Reviews: It’s too bad Franco Rossetti didn’t make more westerns; this is his only oater and it’s a pretty good spaghetti western. I liked Chip Corman (Andrea Giordana) as Steve, El Desperado, who spends much of his screen time in a Confederate soldier uniform masquerading as a blind man’s returning son. He’s not, of course, he’s really after a stash of gold the blind man has been saving, hidden in a ghost town that’s right out of Django, all mud and muck. Pretty soon though a gang shows up to waylay a Confederate payroll that’s rolling through the town. The only negatives are the unavoidable fistfight/barroom brawl and a scene where Desperado gets kicked around in the mud which goes on too long. The finale is great and makes up for quite a bit of the typical spaghetti hi-jinx which leaves non-fans of the genre cold. If you like pasta you’ll dig this almost unknown gem. Just released by Wild East, this has a good widescreen transfer and looks great!
