Johnny Oro, also known as Ringo and His Golden Pistol, is a 1966 Spaghetti Western film directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring Mark Damon.[1]

Synopsis[edit]

Renamed to cash in on the success of Duccio Tessari’s Ringo movies, Ringo and His Golden Pistol focuses on bounty hunter Johnny Oro/Ringo who sees killing as purely business, in fact he won’t draw his solid gold pistol unless he can profit from it and this will get him into trouble. He lets Juanito Perez live because there is nothing to gain from killing a man without a price on his head unlike his brothers who "Ringo" does kill. Perez swears revenge and faces off with "Ringo". Juanito has formed an alliance with the local Indian chief and is now prepared for an all out war against the peaceful town and sheriff that are protecting Ringo.
