As the vogue for spaghetti westerns began to wane, Italian actors Mario Girotti and Carlo Pedersoli created a subgenre based on the new-found traditions, effectively imitating the imitators. They gave themselves the American-sounding names of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer respectively, and became immensely popular (and rich) primarily for a series of films featuring "Trinity" or "Nobody" in its titles. This movie pre-dates those, and Hill and Spencer haven't quite discovered the knockabout style that endeared them to unsophisticated audiences on Saturday nights all over Europe. Non-fans will find the inept dubbing and poor story structure irritating, but others won't care.


A greedy and corrupt businessman rules over a prospecting town, claiming ownership over the gold-rich land and using violence to keep the locals in line. Help comes from an unlikely source when two gunslingers join forces with a travelling circus to free the townsfolk from his control. Comedy Western, starring Terence Hill, Woody Strode and Victor Buono.
