PlotEdit

Confederate Major Sanders (Jacques Sernas), continues fighting the North after the conclusion of the American Civil War. Former Rebel Gary Diamond (Giuliano Gemma), now a guide, leads a pair of Union soldiers to obstruct Sanders before he can pull off a raid on Fort Yuma. However the others are unaware that Diamond knows that one of the Union officers is actually Sanders' spy. More complications ensue, pairing Diamond with the aptly named saloon-girl Connie Breastful (Sophie Daumier). Later Diamond is found to be a traitor and is tortured severely before Sanders' plot is foiled.

ReleaseEdit

Fort Yuma Gold was released in Italy on October 7, 1966.[2] The film was also released with the English title The Rebel Lieutenant.[3]

ReceptionEdit

From contemporary reviews, an anonymous reviewer in the Monthly Film Bulletin described the film as "Utterly routine" with "unconvincinving fights, witless dialogue and prolonged torture, and the hero is another those unprepossessing supermen" and that the film was only distinguished by "the amazing gullibility of the villains who nonchalantly shrug off the sudden deaths of most of their colleagues as accidental."[1]

A retrospective review on AllMovie by Robert Firsching referred to the film as a "well-paced spaghetti western" with a "labyrinthine storyline".[2] Firsching noted that Ferroni's film "sometimes crosses the line into silliness, but remains entertaining throughout, aided by a fine score by Ennio Morricone and Gianni Ferrio."[2]
