Storyline

When Confederate soldier Matt Weaver returns to town after the Civil War, he finds that his home has been sold by town boss Sam Brewster. Brewster hires gunfighter Jules Gaspard d'Estaing to deal with Weaver, but d'Estaing's independent approach settles the town's problems in a very unorthodox manner.

An immoral, racist and corrupt town hires a gunfighter.
8 February 2004 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Richard Wilson worked closely with Orson Welles as an assistant in "Magnificent Ambersons" and "Citizen Kane" also as an actor in "The Lady from "Shanghai". Considering he directed this film and wrote the screenplay with his wife, you certainly could expect a superior western like this one. Yul Brynner comes to a town dominated by a corrupt town boss and where there is also plenty of racism against the Mexicans. Even though the town fought for the Union most of the people behave as if they had opposite ideals. The irony is that George Segal who was the only Confederate is the most moral and open minded of them all. Brynner is paid to kill Segal, but he starts revolting against the corruption,and immorality of those who hired him.
