Directed by skilled craftsman Duccio Tessari (The Bloodstained Butterfly, Death Occurred Last Night), the original Ringo films represent a high-water mark in the annals of the spaghetti western genre, introducing an iconic hero and boasting gripping set-pieces with unforgettable musical scoring by Ennio Morricone. Giuliano Gemma stars in the titular role in 'A Pistol for Ringo', which sees our clean-cut hero infiltrate a ranch of Mexican bandits to save a beautiful hostage (Lorella de Luca). In 'The Return of Ringo' the gunslinger, now a veteran of war, disguises himself as a Mexican in order to take revenge on outlaws who have stolen his property and taken his wife.
Hugely successful upon their original release, Tessari's films spawned numerous unofficial sequels and proved influential on the emerging genre.
