Ruthless Texas lawman Lee Van Cleef pursues fugitive Cuchillo (Tomas Milian), a peasant who has been framed for a child's murder. Working from a story by screenwriter Franco Solinas (THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS), director Sergio Sollima infuses the standard spaghetti Western formulas with a conscious sense of class-driven politics - and plenty of brutal action. In Italian with English subtitles. [DCP]
