Beyond the Law
A thief takes the job as a town sheriff in order to rob a silver shipment before his ex-partner can grab it.
Lee Van Cleef relishes a rare chance to play something other than a ruthless but cool hero, or cold-blooded, ice-eyed bad guy and instead gets to play a kind hearted robber/bum who refuses to use a gun or hurt people.
With the help of two companions, a Black guy (nice to see a Black actor in a large role, I sadly don't have his name) and an old boot named Preacher (a rare big role for Lionel Stander in a Euro Western) he pulls off cunning heists.
But when they rob the miner's payroll for 'Silvertown' from its European courier, Ben Novack (good turn by Antonio Sabato), they get caught up in a far larger story.
It's great to see…
