This movie was playing in grind houses to unsuspecting kids and half-sleeping winos at about the same time EL TOPO was playing at college-area theaters to earnest young students and drug-addled hippies. Oddly, both films make the same point about the futility of death. Or something. While the lack of continuity and coherence here is probably unintentional, the parallels are striking: Like EL TOPO, DEADWOOD '76 offers a mythical gunfighter prompted into a series of challenges that maybe prove something to somebody, but are ultimately meaningless to the central character.
Just thought I'd mention it.
