Brief Synopsis:
The story of a Union soldier who, disguised as a drifter, returns to his town, only to discover that it is overun by ruthless bandits that are keeping his wife hostage alongside the people.
Intention:
This a fanfix of "The Return of Ringo", one of the better Spaghetti Westerns. The story is loosely based on the second half of The Odyssey and boasts of a stellar soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. Unfortunatly, the story is a bit slow at times, mainly due to the protagonist being pasive. This edit attempts to fix that.
Special Thanks:
i would like to thank Artisdead for the cool poster.

Digital
Editing Details:
The film is in italian. Therefore, english subtitles have been burned into the film.
Cuts and Additions:
-Removed the intro credits and the scenes at the cantina. Now the film stars with Montgomery arriving at the town.
-Removed all traces of the Indian. This was done because the character added nothing to the story. He only briefly appears in the last shot, but is never the main focus.
-Esteban Fuentes never gets arrested. All scenes alluding to that are removed.
-Many trims here and there to improve pacing and awkward moments.

Straight to the point, 1 hour was perfect to tell a good story with no dragging, no unnecessary dialogue, or jarring exposition. Efficient storytelling, excellent pacing, and unnoticeable trims. Great edit.
