Gianni Garko stars as the Holy Ghost, a supernatural gunfighter dressed in white and with a dove sitting on his shoulder. With his sidekick (Chris Huerta), the Holy Ghost rescues some farmers from the fortified prison of the evil General Ubarte, then raids the castle again for gold treasure aided by some local prostitutes.

Pilar Velazquez, Jorge Rigaud, Rick Boyd, Nello Pazzafini and Massimo Serato are among the familiar faces in the cast, and Bruno Nicolai’s odd musical score is a fine accompaniment to such scenes as the Ghost’s dove torturing a man for information by pecking at birdseed on his chest. The series continued with Vassili Karis as the Ghost in Roberto Mauri’s …e lo chiamarono Spirito Santo (1972) and its sequels Spirito santo e le cinque magnifiche canaglie (1972) and Bada alla tua pelle Spirito Santo! (1972).
