A Pistol for Ringo
Cast & Crew
A group of Mexican bandits cross the Rio Grande and rob the bank at Quemado, brutally shooting down all opposition. During the getaway, the gang leader, Sancho, is wounded, and the outlaws take refuge at a small ranch operated by Major Clyde and his daughter Ruby. Sancho warns the local sheriff, who is Ruby's fiancé, that unless he and his gang are allowed to go free, a hostage will be killed each day at dawn and sunset. In desperation, the sheriff calls upon a famous professional killer named Ringo for help, and he accepts the offer in return for 30% of the stolen money. Ringo poses as a fellow bandit, contacts Sancho's gang, and offers to escort them to safety for 40% of the loot. After saving Ruby from being raped by one of the bandits, Ringo eliminates several members of the gang. Eventually his deception is discovered, but he manages to kill all but Sancho. After taking his share of the money, Ringo goes after Sancho, shoots him down, and then rides off alone.
