Day of Anger 1967 Arrow Video
Having never known his father and a mother who was a whore Scott Mary (Giuliano Gemma) has grown up in the town of Clifton, Arizona being pushed around by the other residents with few who really care enough for him to try and look out for him. Maybe that is why when charismatic gunman Frank Talby (Lee Van Cleef) rides in to town that Scott becomes captivated with the cool killer who takes an interest in him. When Frank realises that the locals bully Scott he takes him under his wing, teaching him how to draw quick and shoot accurately with the young Scott becoming even better than his teacher. The question is why would Talby want to help Scott?
