Charles Bronson, Toshirô Mifune and Alain Delon star in this spaghetti western from 1971. In 1870, a gang robs a train and steals a ceremonial Japanese sword meant as a gift from Japan to the U.S. President, prompting a manhunt to retrieve it. This was a box office hit in the day.
Bud Spencer plays Hiram Coburn ; a drifter. Jack Palance plays Sunny ; a gunfighter who wants him to marry his sister. A little boy (Renato Cestie) and Jack Palances gun save him from hanging, but the boys uncle gets killed so Bud Spencer adopts the waif. I don’t want to give away too much on the plot, but the interaction between Palance and Bud Spencer is pretty funny.
