Luke Barrett regains his consciousness and finds himself laying in the desert dust next to a dead man. Also, next to him is a rifle with the word 'Dingus' carved on its stock. Luke cannot remember anything that happened, who he is or how he got there. A bullet grazed his head and gave him a concussion. He has temporary amnesia. Nevertheless, he collects a few useful things from the scene of the shooting, picks up a horse and heads toward the nearest town. In town he goes to the saloon for a drink to help clear his head. In the saloon, a stranger clad in black greets him by his name and asks him why he's late. He also asks where Donovan is. Luke decides to play along in order to find out more about himself.

Kinski and the family Dog
10 May 2007 | by ster2001See all my reviews

This a very good Spaghetti Western no question about it. I'm a big fan of the genre and have to admit that the bulk of these films are mediocre to bad and I put off seeking this film out due to the bad reviews posted here. Unfortunately the two comments left are totally unsympathetic to the quirks of the genre and the one review doesn't even describe the story correctly! - May you meet the blazing lead of Antonio Sabatos Elephant gun! The film is very well shot and directed and the score is fine also. Kinski gives a very good nuanced performance. He ends up being extremely evil but there is a question as to this which is carried through out the movie to very good effect, helped by Kinski's performance and the rather intelligent script and effective direction. Sabato is good as the lead and surprisingly you buy that he and Kinski could be brothers, they have similar face structure. Added pluses are some very well staged shoot outs. One in particular uses the Family dog to riotously effective uses in helping the hero roust the Bad guys. Very well done indeed and adds a touch of humor to a sombre reflective film. This scene alone is worth the price of the film even if the rest was a wash, its that good. For you aficionados catch the Dubbing work of Veteran character actor Walter Barnes, as the voice of the Sheriff. A hidden gem if you can get a copy!
