A stranger being chased by bandits dies in an accident, but not before he has had a chance to hide a treasure map the bandits wanted. A boy witnesses where it was hidden, retrieves it and passes it on to the local preacher. The preacher recognizes that much of the treasure was likely that from a local mission. He sets out to get it before the bandits find it.Written by
After much wrangling over a treasure map, mystery man (and pacifist!) Richard Harrison leads a group of men and a young boy in search of an ex-Confederate's stolen gold, battling bandits and eventually one another to be the last one standing.
Between God, The Devil And A Winchester is a great spaghetti western with lots of action and a satisfying adventure loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
Gilbert Roland is excellent as a wily wagon master with an iron gauntlet on his hand, who plays all sides and may or may not be a villain. His performance in this is an absolute pleasure to watch and makes up for any of the film's shortcomings.
