Corrupt officials enlist the services of a bandit, Moody, to kill a farmer in order to seize his property. The town drunk, Brandy, is enlisted as the new sheriff after Moody kills the former. He is expected to be too incompetent to see justice be done but with the help of the townsfolk defeats Moody, his gang and the corrupt officials. Reasonable spaghetti western which starts slowly but improves in the second half by borrowing or ripping off, depending on one's view, Rio Bravo (1959) and High Noon (1952). The villain is clad entirely in black; he even wears black gloves. The film is unintentionally hilarious in a scene where the sheriff, Brandy and a few others break into song, so hopelessly dubbed it's ridiculous. Why would they suddenly sing in English? Not violent a la later spaghetti westerns.
