The character of Tresette followed hot on the heels of the success of the Trinità films, deftly carrying on the trend they set in comedy-western hybrids. The film even co-stars Cris Huerta, once labelled “the Spanish Bud Spencer”. Instead of the omnipresent game of poker, in this film Neapolitan playing cards are dealt at the saloon playing tables. A variety of gags affectionately pay homage to the chaos of silent era comedies. It all plays out wonderfully to the rhythm of punches and straight-shooting dialogue. At times, it even becomes a hilarious sex comedy, with a masked ball in which the tough guys of the Wild West dress up as women, their beards covered by veils.
Tresette, assisted by the faithful Paco, is searching for the key to a safe that contains one hundred thousand stolen dollars. Following the trail, he ends up in an asylum where he goes through all kinds of adventures. In the end, however, he will get his hands on the loot.
