Western
A lanky young Burt Reynolds, in his second movie lead, plays a Navajo who rides down from the mountains to help some white townspeople drive off a gang of bad guys. This 1966 spaghetti western was an early effort from the prolific Sergio Corbucci (Django), who shot most of the movie on location in Guadix and Colmenar Viejo, Spain, and fashions some bold widescreen frames from the men and mountain terrain. There's also a breathlessly edited, dizzily exciting train robbery sequence and some startling, pre-Peckinpah graphic violence. (Though unconvincing as a native American, Reynolds is pretty good with a hatchet.) Ennio Morricone wrote the score.
Director: Sergio Corbucci
Cast: Burt Reynolds, Aldo Sambrell, Nicoletta Machiavelli, Tanya Lopert and Fernando Rey
