THE TALL WOMEN (Gianfranco Parolini, Sidney W. Pink and Rudolf Zehetgruber, 1966) **
26 August 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

To begin with, this isn't really a Spaghetti Western – even if it's listed on websites devoted to the subgenre; while the American title recalls Raoul Walsh's THE TALL MEN (1955), the original Spanish one – LAS SIETES MAGNIFICAS – would wish to liken the film to THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (1960), but such comparisons don't do it any favors at all! Incidentally, I have to wonder what was the purpose of employing three separate directors for it (though billed on the print I watched under one idiotic name, Cehett Grooper) when the result is so thoroughly bland; I presume, however, that each director was basically responsible for supervising the end product on its respective home ground!

The plot – seven women, traveling to the West for marriage purposes and the sole survivors of a caravan massacre, have to contend with marauding Apaches during their trek to the nearest Army fort – is somewhat unusual but, as I said, the uninspired treatment lets it down. Casting is below par, too – led by a past-her-prime Anne Baxter, Maria Perschy (initially irritating as she repeatedly breaks into German bemoaning her infant's death) and Gustavo Rojo (belatedly introduced as the would-be hero, since he's incapacitated almost instantly!).

Two of the women are Italian acrobat sisters whose exploits are, at one point, incongruously accompanied by a typical circus fanfare; I say this because, for the most part, the film's tone is relatively sober – with a fairly violent opening, a surprisingly gruesome stay at an Indian cemetery, and even having one of the women themselves (who has been abducted by the Apaches) found bloodied and scalped!
