This is the worst Western, and maybe even the worst movie ever made. I kept watching it hoping that it had to get better , but alas it continued in a downward spiral. It is so bad that it is unintentionally funny .

It looked like it was photographed in someones back yard in an LA suburb.

Even the old quickie Westerns in the !930's were better than this .

Larry Storch's Mexican character set back Mexican - American relations 20 years

The Federales probably tried to have him arrested for insulting the Mexican culture .

Most of the dialog was amateurish drivel , and the acting was even worst .

View this film only if you are desperately lonely , and have absolutely nothing else to do .
