Spaghetti Western Theater: Finger on the Trigger (1965)

Synopsis from Spaghetti Western Database:

A group of ex-Union soldiers, trekking towards New Mexico to set up new homesteads, come across a band of Confederate soldiers waiting in ambush for a troop of Union soldiers in pursuit of $10 million in hidden Confederate gold. The Union soldiers, pursued by hostile Indians are trapped in the ghost town where the gold is buried where they must decide to fight off the marauding Indians. Routine western produced in Spain.

Nothing revolutionary, but I enjoyed this film. The Youtube version is pretty poor, but it is a free way to see this film. I believe that it is also available on some of those multi-film DVD packs that sell for under $15.00 US on Amazon.com.

The movie is interesting because it is made by Producer/Director Sidney W. Pink. Here is the beginning of his entry at Wikipedia:

Sidney W. Pink (March 16, 1916 – October 12, 2002) was an American movie producer and occasional director. He has been called the father of feature-length 3-D movies. He is also noted for producing early spaghetti westerns and low-budget science-fiction films, and for his role in actor Dustin Hoffman‘s transition from stage to screen.

Sidney Pink was similar to Albert Band in the early role he played in the Eurowestern genre. His movies are very traditional. He came to Spain to make low budget westerns with American actors. However, he did work with European production companies and talent.
