The railroad is pushing deep into the Western wilderness and Brett McBain knows the route it will have to follow. He buys up this useless desert land, builds a ranch and waits for his new wife, Jill, whom he secretly married in New Orleans. But Frank, a brutal gunman working for the railroad also sees the value of the land and an easy way to get it.
Jill arrives to find a burial service in progress for her husband, and the townspeople hunting for Cheyenne, suspected of the murder. Also arriving is The Man, whose reputation with a gun has preceded him.
The Man always keeps himself between Jill and Frank, and keeps them both alive. It is only when the land deed is safely in Jill’s hands that Frank learns who The Man is – the younger brother of a cowboy that Frank murdered years ago.
Directed by Sergio Leone Once Upon A Time In The West stars Frank Wolff, Claudia Cardinale and Henry Fonda.
