A coffin for the sheriff trailer
A Coffin for the Sheriff (Italian: Una bara per lo sceriffo) is a 1965 Italian Spaghetti Western film directed by Mario Caiano and starring Anthony Steffen, Eduardo Fajardo, Fulvia Franco, George Rigaud and Armando Calvo.
A mysterious gunslinger named Shenandoah arrives to the town of Richmond, which is in terror of the famous criminal Lupe Rojo. Rojo and his gang carry a rule of lawlessness, but the townspeople allow him and his gang to stop there after robberies out of fear, while the town sheriff is being paid by the Rojo and looks the other way. Shenandoah quickly falls in with the group of outlaws, but he has a hidden past: he is actually former US Marshal Joe Logan and he is on a revenge mission, searching for the gang member who murdered his wife two years ago.
