1866 , New Mexico territory , the Civil war has finished . The General Lee troops and Union soldiers go back home . Among them a regiment of ¨Sharp shooters¨ of the II brigade of riflemen . But the Infantry battalion has been disappeared on the road to Alamo Fat and the tracks lead to Snake Valley . Sugar Colt (Hunt Powers) is a former government agent , now retired . He works as a professor at ¨Academy for the spiritual defense of women right¨ . His previous chief Pinkerton (George Rigaud) of the famous Pinkerton's detective agency ask him for help in a dangerous mission. Samuel has to find out what happened to an army corps that has mysteriously disappeared . He therefore puts on the disguise of a doctor , including glasses and top hat , and starts investigating in a somewhat uncomfortable town . Samuel Colt goes to Snake Valley where is blackmailed by some nasties and to pay toll 25 cents . After that , at the Snake saloon he meets a beautiful girl named Josefa (Soledad Miranda) . This is a good S.W. plenty of action , shootouts , fist-play and some touches of humor in charge of Sugar Colt character . Tom Cooper or Sugar Colt is a type of James Bond of the West , an elegant marksman and resourceful ¨Bon vivant¨ who is stunningly played by Hunt Powers . It's a Spanish-Italian co-production and , of course , shot on location in Almeria that is well photographed by cameraman Alejandro Ulloa (Horror Express) . In the movie appears usual support actors as Spanish : Frank Braña , Jose Canalejas , Luis Barboo , Victor Israel as Italian : Erno Crisa , Fortunato Arena , Nazzareno Zamperla and Ricardo Pizzuti (customary in Terence Hill and Spencer movies). Special mention for Soledad Miranda (Jess Frank's muse ) as an attractive and rogue young woman ; a bit later on , she unfortunately died by car crash . Original musical score by Luis Enriquez Bacalov and Ennio Morricone , this is one of the best soundtrack of the Spaghetti genre . The motion picture was professionally directed by Franco Giraldi . This Italian writer/filmmaker (and Sergio Leone 's assistant director) so consistently mixed the good with the mediocre that it became quite impossible to know what to expect from him next . He directed four Westerns with abundant touches of humor (Seven guns for the MacGregor -1966- , 7 women for the MacGregor -1967- ) and one serious and violent (A minute to pray , a second to day -1968- ). Rating : acceptable and passable movie that will appeal to Spaghetti Western buffs .
