Synopsis / Plot
A cigarillo smoking stranger (Eastwood) rides into the Mexican border town of San Miguel, a town in which rival factions are battling for control: there are those employed by Sheriff John Baxter, who sell whiskey and guns to the Indians, and those led by Ramon Rojo. As he rides into town, the Man With No Name (occasionally referred to as Joe) is taunted by the Baxters, who shoot at his mule's feet. Upon discovering the status quo in the town from an innkeeper - and being warned to leave town as soon as possible - the stranger rides over to the Rojos and offers his services. He then takes revenge on the four men who harassed him, gunning them down in the street, and demonstrating his prowess.
