COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Mark Damon, Valeria Fabrizi, Ettore Manni, Giulia Rubini. Ringo uses more than his pistol in this explosive spaghetti western. He defends himself with a seemingly endless supply of dynamite, blowing his enemies into oblivion. Based on the popular Italian western hero, Johnny Oro, created by Duccio Tessari.
The story of the film is adapted from the Old Testament: The Philistines declare war on the Israelites and wrench the Arch of the Allience from them. Saul, the king of Israel, listens meanwhile to the words of the prophets who tell him that the new king will be a young shepard called David. But still David has to fight the enemy in form of their mighty giant Goliath.
The Provence, somewhere in the 1950's. Paul Verdier (Fernandel), travelling salesman, leaves his home and his quarrelsome wife for his weekly round. On the train he meets a young woman, Marie (Giulia Rubini), who looks a little lost. No wonder. Marie is pregnant but lacks the customary husband. She's returning to her village but is not exactly looking forward to the confrontation with her parents and the villagers, all pretty conservative people. After getting to know Paul a little better (for which there is ample time during the trip by train and bus) Marie decides to ask Paul to act as her husband, just to allay the suspicions of her family. After some hesitating Paul accepts, charmed by the girl and unaware of the complications such is bound to cause to his own life.
