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 will not draw his solid gold pistol unless he can profit from it and this gets 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".



Johnny Oro was released in Italy on 15 July 1966.[2]
